I thought a good topic would be to start a thread with cool veg*n quotes.
I know I've heard some great ones.... but I can't think of any right now... hence the need for this thread.  :D

Not veg*n, but I think go along with the veg*n spirit...   :)

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."   -Plato

"Help your brother's boat across and your own will reach the shore." - Hindu proverb

"You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

Another non-vegan quote but one I think is valuable and the more you think about it the more sense it makes:
"Love doesn't mean looking at each other, it means looking together in the same direction."
And the good Spanish classic:
"Knowledge doesn't take up space." You can learn and learn and still have room for more!

Oh, no! The Spanish have this all wrong!  ;)

According to the great authority, Andy Rooney (60 Minutes) as we get older, our brains get full. If we add one thing, something else (we have no control over what - somewhat like an overfull cupboard) will fall out. That's why as we get older we forget so much - it's because we're smarter than everyone else by then!  :D

I don't know if this has been quoted yet, but I just bought a piece of art that says

"Do for others with no desire of returned favor. We should all plant some trees we'll never sit under"

I googled it and its anonymous.

I think its vegan related.....as we all save animals we will never meet (sometimes we do!) or that will never thank us.

The art was not that great, but I couldn't pass up the quote!

I also bought another original clay piece that says "with greatness of a mind there is always compassion"  I loved the art and the quote!

6/2007 Quote from Noah, age 6, after seeing some developers tearing down trees on the mountains to build more human homes:

"That hurts the whole mountain, you know. The mountains like the feel of the roots of the trees in them. Its like cutting off the arm of a human-they are connected."

Sniff sniff.....there may be hope for the future after all....... :)

This is not a quote froom anyone famous - just one of the wisest women I have ever known who lives on a tiny, remote Scottish island - Vi Tulloch

Man's first fault is greed, his second is carelessness and his thrid is lack of courage.

It's applicable to so many situations, including the general public's attitude to animal rearing and slaughter
