Vegetarian Quotes

For Healthier Body & Happier Humanity

 movement should cause special joy those whose life lies in the effort to bring about the kingdom of God on earth... because it is a sign that the aspiration of mankind towards moral perfection is serious and sincere, for it has taken the one unalterable order of succession natural to it, beginning with the first step.

Flesh eating is simply immoral, as it involves the performance of an act, which is contrary to moral feeling: killing. This is dreadful! Not the suffering and death of the animals, but that a man suppresses in himself, unnecessarily, the highest spiritual capacity -- that of sympathy and pity towards living creatures like himself -- and by violating his own feelings becomes cruel. And how deeply seated in the human heart is the injunction not to take life!  So strong is humanity's aversion to all killing. But by example, by encouraging greediness, by the assertion that God has allowed it, and above all by habit, people entirely lose this natural feeling.’
