From Gail Davis' VEGETARIAN FOOD FOR THOUGHT

World peace, or any other kind of peace, depends greatly on the attitude of the mind. Vegetarianism can bring about the right mental attitude for peace.

In this world of lusts and hatreds, greed and anger, force and violence, vegetarianism holds forth a way of life, which if practiced universally, can lead to a better, juster, and more peaceful community of nations.


U NU (THAKIN NU) 1907-1995
Former Prime Minister of Burma


Until he extends the circle of compassion
to all living things,
man will not himself find peace.


Albert Schweitzer, MD, PhD 1875-1965


As long as man continues to be the ruthless destroyer
of lower living beings, he will never know health or peace.
For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other.
Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder
and pain cannot reap joy and love.

Pythagoras
6th Century BC


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, 1904-1992
Author, Nobel Laureate, Holocaust survivor
