vegetarianism

A Quote by George Bernard Shaw on vegetarianism

The average age (longevity) of a meat eater is 63. I am on the verge of 85 and still work as hard as ever. I have lived quite long enough and am trying to die; but I simply cannot do it. A single beef-steak would finish me; but I cannot bring myself to swallow it. I am oppressed with a dread of living forever. That is the only disadvantage of vegetarianism.

George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950)

A Quote by Scott Adams (Dilbert) on vegetarianism

You're thinking I'm one of those wise-ass California vegetarians who is going to tell you that eating a few strips of bacon is bad for your health. I'm not. I say it's a free country and you should be able to kill yourself at any rate you choose, as long as your cold dead body is not blocking my driveway.

A Quote by The XLV Dalai Lama on vegetarianism

Killing animals for sport, for pleasure, for adventure, and for hides and furs is a phenomena which is at once disgusting and distressing. There is no justification in indulging in such acts of brutality.

A Quote by Rev. Andrew Linzey on vegetarianism

Animals are God's creatures, not human property, nor utilities, nor resources, nor commodities, but precious beings in God's sight. …Christians whose eyes are fixed on the awfulness of crucifixion are in a special position to understand the awfulness of innocent suffering. The Cross of Christ is God's absolute identification with the weak, the powerless, and the vulnerable, but most of all with unprotected, undefended, innocent suffering.

Andrew Linzey (1952 -)
