Love Thy Neighbor (on This Planet)
Throughout history thinkers and artists, from Pythagoras to Paul McCartney, were concerned not only by the way we treat each other, but also how we treat our fellow animals.
I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men.Leonardoda Vinci
We do not like to think about what we eat and where our food comes from.
And though we may hide the suffering behind thick walls of the slaughter-houses, but this won't make it disappear.
If you don’t like seeing pictures of violence towards animals being posted, you need to help stop the violence, not the pictures.JohnnyDepp

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.ThomasEdison
We, humans have the power of choice. Each of us has the ability to stop the suffering and save as much as 300 lives a year, plus cut on CO2 emissions, water consumption and land use.
Animals are my friends...and I don't eat my friends.GeorgeBernard Shaw
Now I can look at you in peace; I don't eat you any more.FranzKafka
