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

        Animals are my friends… and I don’t eat my friends.  ~George Bernard Shaw

        Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet we make the same
impression on Buddhists and vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our
own.  ~Robert Louis Stevenson

        Vegetarian – that’s an old Indian word meaning “lousy hunter.”  ~Andy Rooney

        We all love animals.  Why do we call some “pets” and others “dinner?”
~k.d. lang

some famous vegetarians….

Thanksgiving dinner’s sad and thankless
Christmas dinner‘s dark and blue
When you stop and try to see it
From the turkey’s point of view.
~Shel Silverstein, “Point of View”

I have no doubt that it is a part of the destiny of the human race, in its
gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as surely as the savage tribes
have left off eating each other….  ~Henry David
Thoreau, Walden, 1854
