Wise Words – 19 June 2008

“We stopped eating meat many years ago. During the course of a Sunday lunch we happened to look out of the kitchen window at our young lambs playing happily in the fields. Glancing down at our plates, we suddenly realized that we were eating the leg of an animal who had until recently been playing in a field herself. We looked at each other and said, ‘Wait a minute, we love these sheep – they're such gentle creatures. So why are we eating them?’ It was the last time we ever did.”
– Linda and Paul McCartney (musicians)

“If experiments on animals were abandoned on grounds of compassion, mankind would have made a fundamental advance.”
– Richard Wagner (composer, poet, and essayist)

"Joyful Curmudgeon"
An oxymoron?
No! I see all the beauty of God's creation and I'm joyful.  At the same time, I see all the suffering and corruption going on in the world, and feel called to help expose and end it so that we may have true peace and compassion.
