"To be a vegetarian is to disagree - to disagree with the course of
things today. Starvation, world hunger, cruelty, waste, wars - we must
make a statement about these things. Vegetarianism is my statement. And
I think it is a good one."
"There will be no justice as long as man will stand with a knife or
with a gun and destroy those who are weaker than he is."
"I became a vegetarian not just for my own health...but for the
health of the chickens."
"As often as Herman had witnessed the slaughter of animals and fish,
he always had the same thought: in their behavior toward creatures, all
men are Nazis. The smugness with which man could do with other species
as he pleased exemplified the most extreme racist theories, the
principle that might is right."
"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."
