I love chicks... pigs, cows, fish, and all the other animals too. That's why I turned vegetarian. I am very happy being a vegetarian and I believe that it is the best way to be. The day I started believing in the fact that I would want not to kill animals for my taste buds that is the day everything changed for me. - Shahid Kapoor, Actor and PETA India's Sexiest Vegetarian 2009
Mankind cannot, I submit, save itself from destruction through mere cleverness of scientific technology selfishly applied, nor through wishful thinking. But through a deep sense of brotherhood of all life, and a willingness and eagerness on the part of each and every person to work constructively for the preservation and enhancement of life, mankind may yet be preserved and go forward into the next millennium with confidence, competence and compassion. - H.Jay Dinshah (1933-2000), President of the American Vegan Society at The Vegetarian Way, XXIV World Vegetarian Congress, 1977
Cruelty to ... animals is one of the distinguishing vices of low and base minds. Wherever it is found, it is a certain mark of ignorance and meanness; a mark which all the external advantages of wealth, splendour, and nobility cannot obliterate. It is consistent neither with learning nor true civility. - Sir William Jones (1746 - 1794), English Poet and Philologist
