Mange kendte mænd har gennem tiden udtalt sig omkring det at spise kød og slagtning af dyr, det er ikke et nyt fænomen at være vegetar. Jeg kan desværre ikke garantere for autenticiteten af alle nedenstående citater men vise ord er det i hvert fald. Undrer mig dog bare lidt over hvorfor der ikke er nogen kvinder repræsenteret!

Vise ord fra kendte mænd:

Albert Einstein – “Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet.”

Leonardo daVinci – “Truly man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs. We live by the death of others: we are burial places! I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look on the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.”

Benjamin Franklin – “My refusing to eat flesh occasioned an inconveniency, and I was frequently chided for my singularity, but, with this lighter repast, I made the greater progress, for greater clearness of the head and quicker comprehension.” “Flesh-eating is an unprovoked murder.”

The Dali Lama– “People think of animals as if they were vegetables, and that is not right. We have to change the way people think about animals. I encourage the Tibetan people and all people to move toward a vegetarian diet that doesn’t cause suffering.”

Thomas Edison – “Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.”

Abraham Lincoln – “I am in favor of animal rights as well as human rights. That is the way of a whole human being.”

Mahatma Gandhi – “I do feel that spiritual progress does demand at some stage that we should cease to kill our fellow creatures for the satisfaction of our bodily wants.”
“I do not regard flesh-food as necessary for us at any stage and under any clime in which it is possible for human beings ordinarily to live. I hold flesh-food to be unsuited to our species. We err in copying the lower animal world – if we are superior to it.”

Buddha – “To become vegetarian is to step into the stream which leads to nirvana.”

Cesar Chavez – “I became a vegetarian after realizing that animals feel afraid, cold, hungry and unhappy like we do. I feel very deeply about vegetarianism and the animal kingdom. It was my dog Boycott who led me to question the right of humans to eat other sentient beings.”
“We need, in a special way, to work twice as hard to help people understand that the animals are fellow creatures, that we must protect them and love them as we love ourselves.”

Henry David Thoreau – “I have no doubt that it is a part of the destiny of the human race, in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as surely as the savage tribes have left off eating each other.”

Leo Tolstoy – “Flesh-eating is simply immoral, as it involves the performance of an act which is contrary to moral feeling – killing.”

Confucius – “Anyone who has ever heard the scream of an animal being killed could never again eat its flesh.”

Vaslav Nijinsky Ballet dancer: I do not like eating meat because I have seen lambs and pigs killed. I saw and felt their pain. They felt their approaching death. I could not bear it. I cried like a child. I ran up a hill and could not breathe. I felt that I was choking. I felt the death of the lamb.

Pythagoras – “As long as Man continues to be the ruthless destroyer of lowering living beings he will never know health or peace. For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seeds of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love.”

Ralph Waldo Emerson – “You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity.”

St. Francis of Assisi – “If you have men who will exclude any of God’s creatures from the shelter of compassion and pity, you will have men who will deal likewise with their fellow men.”

Vincent Van Gogh – “Since visiting the abbatoirs [slaughterhouses] of South France, I have stopped eating meat.”

Nikola Tesla – “It is certainly preferable to raise vegetables, and I think, therefore, that vegetarianism is a commendable departure from the established barbarous habit. That we can subsist on plant food and perform our work even to advantage is not a theory, but a well-demonstrated fact. Many races living almost exclusively on vegetables are of superior physique and strength. There is no doubt that some plant food, such as oatmeal, is more economical than meat, and superior to it in regard to both mechanical and mental performance. Such food, moreover, taxes our digestive organs decidedly less, and, in making us more contented and sociable, produces an amount of good difficult to estimate. In view of these facts every effort should be made to stop the wanton and cruel slaughter of animals, which must be destructive to our morals.”

Bill Clinton – “I did all this research and I saw that 82% of the people since 1986 who have gone on a plant-based, no dairy, no meat of any kind [diet…] have begun to heal themselves. Their arterial blockage cleans up, the calcium deposit around their heart breaks up. We now have 25 years of evidence.”

George Barnard Shaw – When told by doctors in his 90th year that he would need to eat meat to survive, he responded, “I solemnly declare that it is my last wish that when I am no longer a captive of this physical body, that my coffin when carried to the graveyard be accompanied by mourners of the following categories: first, birds; second, sheep, lambs, cows and other animals of the kind; third, live fish in an aquarium. Each of these mourners should carry a placard bearing the inscription: ‘O Lord, be gracious to our benefactor G.B. Shaw who gave his life for saving ours!’”

Leilani Munter, race car driver – “If I was just another vegetarian, tree hugging, biology graduate asking people to give up meat and stop using plastic bags, I don’t know how many people would be listening to me. But because I drive a race car, I have an ability to reach a new audience of people that most environmentalists are probably not talking to.”

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

John Denver – “Many things made me become a vegetarian, among them, the higher food yield as a solution to world hunger.”

Alec Baldwin – “Every time we sit down to eat, we make a choice: Please choose vegetarianism. Do it for animals. Do it for the environment and do it for your health.”

Richard Gere – “As custodians of the planet, it is our responsibility to deal with all species with kindness. People get offended by animal rights campaigns. It’s ludicrous. It’s not as bad as mass animal death in a factory.”

Woody Harrelson – “Yeah, milk does a body good – if you are a calf”.
