A Mary T. Hoffman Commentary from


"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.


Today’s Quotations – 3 February 2009
By Mary T. Hoffman

All through history and throughout the world there have been a few who have been brave enough to speak the truth and face the consequences. I think these quotations are from just such brave souls:

“My favorite quote says it all… ‘Become a vegan/vegetarian: your body will respect you for your wisdom and the animals will love you for your compassion.’ ”
– Casey Kasem, American Top 40 radio personality

“It is very significant that some of the most thoughtful and cultured men are partisans of a pure vegetable diet.”
– Mohandas Gandhi (1869–1948), Hindu pacifist and spiritual leader

“Truth above all, even when it upsets us and overwhelms us.”
– Frederick Amiel (1821–1881), Swiss philosopher and poet
