As custodians of the planet it is our responsibility to deal with all species with kindness, love, and compassion. That these animals suffer through human cruelty is beyond understanding. Please help to stop this madness.
Richard Gere (actor)

If you could see or feel the suffering you wouldn't think twice. Give back life. Don't eat meat.
Kim Basinger (actress

I have always felt that the way we treat animals is a pretty good indicator of the compassion we are capable of for the human race.
Ali McGraw (actress)

If slaughterhouses had glass walls, everyone would be vegetarian. We feel better about ourselves and better about the animals, knowing we're not contributing to their pain.
Paul and Linda McCartney (musicians)

We stopped eating meat many years ago. During the course of a Sunday lunch we happened to look out of the kitchen window at our young lambs playing happily in the fields. Glancing down at our plates, we suddenly realised that we were eating the leg of an animal who had until recently been playing in a field herself. We looked at each other and said, "Wait a minute, we love these sheep--they're such gentle creatures. So why are we eating them?" It was the last time we ever did.
Linda and Paul McCartney (musicians)

I just couldn't stand the idea of eating meat--and I really do think that it has made me calmer...People's general awareness is getting much better, even down to buying a pint of milk: the fact that the calves are actually killed so that the milk doesn't go to them but to us can't really be right, and if you've seen a cow in a state of extreme distress because it can't understand why its calf isn't by it, it can make you think a lot.
Kate Bush (singer and songwriter)

One person can make all the difference in the world...For the first time in recorded human history, we have the fate of the whole planet in our hands.
Chrissie Hynde (musician)

I grew up in cattle country--that's why I became a vegetarian. Meat stinks, for the animals, the environment, and your health.
k.d. lang (musician)

I haven't bought any leather articles for a very long time. My ideal is to be able to avoid all animal products, in food as well as clothing.
Martina Navratilova (tennis champion)

Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet we make the same impression on Buddhists and vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our own.
Robert Louis Stevenson (novelist and poet)

We consume the carcasses of creatures of like appetites, passions and organs with our own, and fill the slaughterhouses daily with screams of pain and fear.
Robert Louis Stevenson (novelist and poet)

What with our hooks, snares, nets, and dogs, we are at war with all living creatures, and nothing comes amiss but that which is either too cheap or too common; and all this is to gratify a fantastical palate.
Seneca (Roman Stoic philosopher)

Animal life, somber mystery. All nature protests against the barbarity of man, who misapprehends, who humiliates, who tortures his inferior brethren.
Jules Michelet (historian)

Animals form an inalienable fragment of nature, and if we hasten the disappearance of even one species, we diminish our world and our place in it.
James Michener (novelist, Pulitzer 1947)
