Weeds by Mary T. Hoffman

"My transformation from conservationist to veganism was first denial, followed by query, followed by internal violent opposition, followed by logic, followed by acceptance, followed by enactment."

"As a planet, we are eating ourselves to death. Perhaps one day, aliens will land on Earth, review what is left, and wonder in amazement how we were so short sighted. I cannot think of another species whose downfall was triggered by gluttony combined with denial in the service of convenience."

"How can we wake up all of humanity to the short-sightedness of meat eating? It would drastically reduce the bush-meat trade, deforestation, ocean pollution, hunger and so on. My son Leo was named after Tolstoy, who rightfully visioned, 'As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields.'"

"Change cannot come from the top levels of society. It must come from the ground. We must somehow convince the youth of the benefits of a vegan lifestyle. This should be the baseline of an ethical existence."
