Some Fun Quotes To Read & Perhaps Inspire  cloud9 pig apple wave

"Animals do not 'give' their life to us, as the sugar-coated lie would have it. No, we take their lives. They struggle and fight to the last breath, just as we would do if we were in their place."
John Robbins (author, 1947- Present)

"Animals are my friends, and I don't eat my friends."
George Bernard Shaw (writer and critic, 1856-1950)

"Nothing will benefit human health and increase the chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet."
Albert Einstein (physicist and mathematician, 1879-1955)

"Truly man is the king of beasts, for flesh eating is unprovoked murder."
Benjamin Franklin (statesman, scientist and author, 1706-90)

"If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would go vegetarian."
Sir Paul McCartney (musician and songwriter, 1942)

"I, for my part, wonder of what sort of feeling, mind or reason that man was possessed who was first to pollute his mouth with gore, and allow his lips to touch the flesh of a murdered being; who spread his table with the mangled form of dead bodies, and claimed as daily food and dainty dishes what but now were beings endowed with movement, with perception and with voice."
Plutarch (biographer and philosopher, 46-120 A.D.)

"Becoming a vegetarian is not merely a symbolic gesture. Nor is it an attempt to isolate oneself from the ugly realities of the world, to keep oneself pure and so without responsibility for the cruelty and carnage all around. Becoming a vegetarian is a highly practical and effective step one can take toward ending both the killing of nonhuman animals and the infliction of suffering on them."
Peter Singer, Animal Liberation, Second Edition, London: Jonathan Cape, 1990, pp. 168 & 169.

"A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral."
Leo Tolstoy (writer and philosopher, 1828-1910)

"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men."
Alice Malsenior Walker (author and feminist, 1944-)

Top and bottom ones are my favourite.

I also have an English paper due in on ideologies in a few weeks and I've chosen to write on veganism. I wanted to finish the paper off with a quote I constructed myself, so If you guys can help me choose which one to use, or tips on changing some words around, any help at all would be great! Of course, if you have one that you have constructed yourself, i'll be sure to credit you. wink

Here are mine..

"I choose not to play God by choosing who lives; who dies and who must feel pain. Thus, I am vegan."

"Veganism is not a diet; it is a calling. A calling to protect those who are voiceless and defenceless. No matter whether they spawn wings, grow fur or feed from a trough, through veganism these are the protected."

"Veganism is not a diet; it is a calling. A calling to protect those who are voiceless and defenceless. No matter whether they stand on eight legs, four legs, two legs or no legs, through veganism these are the protected."

"Veganism is not a diet; it is a principle. A principle that does not discriminate and exploit on the number of legs one stands; the type of fur one grows or whether or not one spawns wings."

Thanks so much guys (:

Ask the experimenter why they test on animals and they will claim "because animals are like us". Ask the experimenter why its okay to test on animals and they will claim "because animals are not like us". Animal experimentation contradicts itself.

matt the first ones my favourite out of them because its short. if you shortened one of the others to something like what Shirley suggested.
otherwise the last ones my second fave although i just don't like the word "principle" in it, but thats just me.

just a few quotes that i like;

"To a man whose mind is free there is something even more intolerable in the sufferings of animals than in the sufferings of man. For with the latter it is at least admitted that suffering is evil and that the man who causes it is a criminal. But thousands of animals are uselessly butchered every day without a shadow of remorse. If any man were to refer to it, he would be thought ridiculous. And that is the unpardonable crime."
~Romain Rolland, author, Nobel Prize 1915

"What is it that should trace the insuperable line? ...The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?"
~Jeremy Bentham, philosopher

"You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit.  If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I'll buy you a new car."
~Harvey Diamond

Matt, I like the first one too ecstatic

Some more quotes:

Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.
~ Thomas Edison 1847-1931

If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian.
~ Paul McCartney

"People are the only animals that drink the milk of the mother of another species. All other animals stop drinking milk altogether after weaning. It is unnatural for a dog to nurse from a mother giraffe; it is just as unnatural for a human being to drink the milk of a cow."
~ Michael Klaper, M.D., American author and international lecturer

'Fish are friends, not food.' -Bruce the shark, and his friends.
'Ignore the ignorant.' - Me
