Sir James Paul McCartney CH MBE (born 18 June 1942)

“If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be a vegetarian.”


Theodor Adorno (1903-1969) (German philosopher)

"Auschwitz begins wherever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks: They're only animals"


Red Indian Chief (1854)

"How can man be possessed of kindness who, to increase his own flesh,

Eats the flesh of other creatures.

As those possess no property who do not take care of it, so those possess no kindness who feed on flesh.

Like the (murderous) mind of him who carries a weapon (in his hand),

the mind of him who feasts with pleasure on the body of another

(creature), has no regard for goodness.

Man did not weave the web of life: he is merely a strand in it.

Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself. To harm the earth is to heap contempt on its creator."


Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)

"Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet flesh eaters feed on babies, though not their own".


K.D.Lang (b 1961)

"We all love animals so why do we call some "pets' and others "dinner?"


Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

"Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet".


George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950)

"Think of the fierce energy concentrated in an acorn! You bury it in the ground, and it explodes into an oak! Bury a sheep, and nothing happens but decay".


Plutarch, historian, philosopher,(46CE-120CE)

"But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh, we deprive a soul of the sun and the light and that proportion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy."


Pythagoras,1st pure mathematician (500's BCE)

"For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love."
