“As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields”   

Leo Tolstoy

“There comes a time that crimes against animals, will be tried as crimes against humans. Eating meat will be forgotten, like we can’t remember eating people in Europe”

Leonardo da Vinci

“Eating meat is a remnant of gross barbarism. Switching to vegetarianism is the first and most natural consequence of spiritual enlightenment. You shall not be confused, judged, and mocked by housemates, who will attack you because you have become a vegetarian. If eating meat would have been an indifferent matter, meat-eaters would not attack vegetarianism. They get angry because they are conscious of their guilt, but have not yet the strength to liberate themselves from it”

Leo Tolstoy

“Who is cruel towards animals, can never be a good person”

Arthur Schopenhauer
