Hey! I am a super quote fan, and I just made a page on my facebook called "Why I choose to be a vegetarian"- I need some GOOD vegetarian quotes..Even if you have some good quotes on life, or anything feel free to post them! Nothing like a little feel good inspiration!Thanks guys!
Heeey there! So cool, I LOVE a great, inspirational quote, and to me there's simply nothing more inspirational than this one from Marianne Williamson:
"Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
My favorite has always been: "Animals are my friends...and I don't eat my friends." (George Bernard Shaw) I love it because it simplifies the whole issue. That ONE sentence is the original reason I became a vegetarian. Whenever I feel like things are getting too complicated, I go back to that quote and feel steady again.
Even in the worm that crawls in the earth there glows a divine spark. When you slaughter a creature, you slaughter God. - Isaac Bashevis
I don't hold animals superior or even equal to humans. The whole case for behaving decently to animals rests on the fact that we are the superior species. We are the species uniquely capable of imagination, rationality, and moral choice - and that is precisely why we are under an obligation to recognize and respect the rights of animals. - Brigid Brophy
What is it that should trace the insuperable line?... The question is not, Can they reason? nor, Can they talk? but, Can they suffer? - Jeremy Bentham
