Following is a list of some of my favorite quotes that have inspired me and reminded me why I went vegan. Let me know if you have any favorites you would like me to add to this list.
“The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer?” ~ Jeremy Bentham (1748–1832)
“If you don’t stick to your values when they’re being tested, they’re not values: they’re hobbies.” ~ Jon Stewart
“Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”
~ Albert Einstein (1879 -1955)
“No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.” ~ Voltaire (1694-1778)
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.
~ Isaac Bashevis Singer (Nobel Prize-winning novelist, 1904 – 1991)
“All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as being self-evident.” ~ Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
