Veg Wisdom

What do I think of Western civilization? I think it would be a very good idea. - Mohandas Gandhi

The beef industry has contributed to more American deaths than all the wars of this century, all natural disasters, and all automobile accidents combined.

Veg Wisdom

Veg Wisdom

You're thinking I'm one of those wise-ass California vegetarians who is going to tell you that eating a few strips of bacon is bad for your health. I'm not. I say it's a free country and you should be able to kill yourself at any rate you choose, as long as your cold dead body is not blocking my driveway. - Scott Adams, Dilbert cartoonist

Veg Wisdom

If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went. - Will Rogers

Veg Wisdom

Yeah, milk does a body good — if you are a calf. - Woody Harrelson, actor, activist, meat-free since 1997

Veg Wisdom

Our children may save us if they are taught to care properly for the planet; but if not, it may be back to the Ice Age or the caves from where we first emerged. Then we'll have to view the universe above from a cold, dark place. No more jet skis, nuclear weapons, plastic crap, broken pay phones, drugs, cars, waffle irons, or television. Come to think of it, that might not be a bad idea. - Jimmy Buffet, Singer, Songwriter, Author



Veg Wisdom

I will not eat anything that walks, runs, skips, hops or crawls. God knows that I've crawled on occasion, and I'm glad that no one ate me. - Alex Poulos, fictional character on the Australian soap opera, Home and Away, played by Danny Raco.

Veg Wisdom

He is a heavy eater of beef. Me thinks it doth harm to his wit. - Shakespeare, Twelfth Night

All of the animals except man know that the principle business of life is to enjoy it. - Samuel Butler, poet (1612-1680)

Veg Wisdom

I'm not working out. My philosophy: no pain, no pain... I recently became vegan because I felt that as a Jewish lesbian, I wasn't part of a small enough minority. So now I'm a Jewish lesbian vegan. - Carol Leifer, American comedian (1956 - )

Veg Wisdom

Meat is dirty. I wouldn't touch a hot dog without a condom on it. -Bill Maher, American comedian, actor, TV host, political satirist (1956 - )

Veg Wisdom

My doctor told me to stop having intimate dinners for four. Unless there are three other people. - Orson Welles, American actor, director, screenwriter (1915 - 1985)

It's only funny if everyone laughs...

Editor's Note: No different than McDonald's, Burger King, and others, except the picture is more honest. What if the fast food restaurants had pictures like that for the kids to see where their food really came from?! And for the parents to have to explain.

Fruits are my favorite food. Apples, pears, plums, oranges, or lemons, bananas or melons, figs, pineapples or apricots. They are on the top of my food pyramid. The reason being that they are so pure and so natural, and because of the fact that you can see that they belong to us. Should I place a fruit such as a peach with its soft rosy skin or a pair of brightly shining red cherries next to a piece of raw meat, I would say that one belongs to me more than the other. I myself am meat.

I love to have flowers in my room because they are like a bright spot of light in that space, however when there are no flowers, I place in the spot where the vase with beautiful flowers stood a plate with fruit, this creates the same sparkling energy in the room. I cannot say that about a piece of raw meat on my piano, nor about a mackerel on my mantelpiece. - Toon Hermans, 75 Woorden (75 Words), 1916-2000

Really? Define weird.

"The standard diet of a meat-eater is blood, flesh, veins, muscles, tendons, cow secretions, hen periods and bee vomit. And once a year during a certain holiday in November, meat-eaters use the hollowed-out rectum of a dead bird as a pressure cooker for stuffing. And people think vegans are weird because we eat tofu?"

- Robert Cheeke, vegan bodybuilder


Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit;
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

History of Medicine

I have an earache:

1850 A.D. -That prayer is superstition. Here, drink this potion.
1940 A.D. -That potion is snake oil. Here, swallow this pill.
1985 A.D. -That pill is ineffective. Here, take this antibiotic.
2000 A.D. -That antibiotic is artificial. Here, eat this root.
