“It is significant to note that those who live on vegetarian food are less prone to diseases, whereas non-vegetarians are subject to more diseases. Why? Because animal food is incompatible with the needs of the human body.” -Sri Sathya Sai Baba.
“More and more we realize that vegetarian diet is a good idea.” -Dr. Edward Martin, head of Dept. of Defense Health (NPR Oct 27).
“I decided I needed to be consistent in my prolife stance so 13 years ago I became a vegetarian.” -David O’Steen, national director of Right to Life.
“Martin Luther King taught us all nonviolence. I was told to extend nonviolence to the mother and her calf.” -Dick Gregory.

“As soon as I realized that I didn't need meat to survive or to be in good health, I began to see how forlorn it all is. If only we had a different mentality about the drama of the cowboy and the range and all the rest of it.

“In fact, if one person is unkind to an animal it is considered to be cruelty, but where a lot of people are unkind to animals, especially in the name of commerce, the cruelty is condoned and, once large sums of money are at stake, will be defended to the last by otherwise intelligent people.” -Ruth Harrison, author.
“Truly man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds them. We live by the death of others. We are burial places.” -Leonardo da Vinci.
“The awful cruelty and terror to which tens of thousands of animals killed for human food are subjected in traveling long distances by ship and rail and road to the slaughterhouses of the world. God disapproves of all cruelty... whether to man or beast. The occupation of slaughtering animals is brutalising to those who are required to do the work.... I believe this matter is well worthy of the serious consideration of Christian leaders.” -Mrs. Booth and General Bramwell Booth, daughter-in-law and son of the founder of the Salvation Army.
“Behold I have given you herb yielding seed. To you it shall be for meat.”-Genesis l:29.
