“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to
climb a tree it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
"O, heavenly Father, protect and bless all things that
have breath; guard them from all evil, and let them sleep in peace."
“The world is a dangerous place, not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.”
"The important thing is not to stop questioning."
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part
limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and
feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion
of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us,
restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few
persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this
prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living
creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to
achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in
itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
"Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival
of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet."
"It is my view that a vegetarian manner of living, by
its purely physical effect on the human temperament, would most
beneficially influence the lot of mankind."
German Alsatian theologian, musician, philosopher,
