“If a group of beings from another planet were to land on Earth – beings who considered themselves as superior to you as you feel yourself to be to other animals – would you concede them the rights over you that you assume over other animals?”
– George Bernard Shaw
To my mind, the life of a lamb is no less precious than that of a human being.
– Mahatma Gandhi
Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of survival for life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.
– Albert Einstein
I got married to a vegetarian “by choice” girl. I have always been opposed to people who call them vegetarian by choice. The whole idea of not trying non vegetarian and claiming vegetarian by choice seems absurd to me. I am a whole hearted supporter of experimenting with everything – have experimented things beyond what my culture and religion allows me to. So I could never ever take stand on this by choice philosophy. However, there is a much deeper thought which I understood later after doing some more reading and thinking.
