vegetarianism

A Quote by Paul and Linda McCartney on vegetarianism

If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian. We feel better about ourselves and better about the animals, knowing we're not contributing to their pain.

A Quote by Paul McCartney on vegetarianism

The medical argument for animal testing doesn't stand up. Even if it did, I don't think we should kill other species. We think we're so much better; I'm not sure we are. I tell people, We've beaten into submission every animal on the face of the Earth, so we are the clear winners of whatever battle is going on between the species. Couldn't we be generous? I really do think it's time to get nice. No need to keep beating up on them. I think we've got to show that we're kind.

Paul McCartney (1942 -)

A Quote by Neal D. Barnard, M.D. on vegetarianism

The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined. If beef is your idea of 'real food for real people,' you'd better live real close to a real good hospital.

A Quote by Isaac Singer on vegetarianism

People often say that humans have always eaten animals, as if this is a justification for continuing the practice. According to this logic, we should not try to prevent people from murdering other people, since this has also been done since the earliest of times.

A Quote by Sir William Jones on vegetarianism

Cruelty to dumb animals is one of the distinguishing vices of low and base minds. Wherever it is found, it is a certain mark of ignorance and meanness; a mark which all the external advantages of wealth, splendour, and nobility, cannot obliterate. It is consistent neither with learning nor true civility.

William Jones (1746 - 1794)

A Quote by Jeremy Bentham on vegetarianism

What is it that should trace the insuperable line? …The question is not, Can they reason? nor Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?

A Quote by Mark Twain on vegetarianism

I am not interested to know whether vivisection produces results that are profitable to the human race or doesn't…The pain which it inflicts upon unconsenting animals is the basis of my enmity toward it, and it is to me sufficient justification of the enmity without looking further.

Atrocities are not less atrocities when they occur in laboratories and are called medical research.v
