"From Love all beings have come, by Love they all live..." "From Love all beings have come, by Love they all live, and unto Love they all return." -Taittiriya Upanishad "Compassion, in which all ethics must take root, can only attain its full breadth and depth if it embraces all living creatures and does not limit itself to mankind." -Albert Schweitzer "Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can't help them, at least don't hurt them." -Dalai Lama "Thousands of people who say they "love" animals sit down once or twice a day to enjoy the flesh of creatures who have been utterly deprived of everything that could make their lives worth living and who endured the awful suffering and the terror of the abattoirs— and the journey to get there— before finally leaving their miserable world, only too often after a painful death." -Jane Goodall "As far as eating is concerned, humans are the most stupid animals on the planet. We kill billions of wild animals to protect the animals that we eat. We are destroying our environment to feed to the animals we eat. We spend more time, money and resources fattening up the animals that we eat, than we do feeding humans who are dying of hunger. The greatest irony is that after all the expenses of raising these animals, we eat them; and they kill us slowly. And rather than recognize this madness, we torture and murder millions of other animals trying to find cures to diseases caused by eating animals in the first place." -Mike Anderson "The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated." ― Mahatma Gandhi "If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. ... We need not wait to see what others do." ― Mahatma Gandhi "The purpose of human life is to serve, and to show compassion and the will to help others." -Albert Schweitzer "From Love all beings have come, by Love they all live, and unto Love they all return." _Taittiriya Upanishad Milk Myths http://www.woodstocksanctuary.org/learn-3/your-health/milk-myths/ http://freefromharm.org/animal-products-and-culture/the-milk-of-human-unkindness/?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+FreeFromHarm+%28Free+from+Harm%29 UN urges global move to meat and dairy-free diet http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2010/jun/02/un-report-meat-free-diet Carbon footprint of carnivorous diet revealed http://www.independent.co.uk/environment/carbon-footprint-of-carnivorous-diet-revealed-2316856.html How Does Meat in the Diet Take an Environmental Toll? http://www.scientificamerican.com/article.cfm?id=meat-and-environment Huffpost Healthy Living http://www.huffingtonpost.com/nil-zacharias/vegan-nutrition-myths_b_949288.html 91-Year-Old Runner Credits Veganism for Longevity http://vegnews.com/articles/page.do?pageId=5654&catId=8 Music kindly borrowed from Korgis "Everybody's Got To Learn Sometime"
