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

Thanks for sourcing this quote, eric. I used to have it in Spanish on a plaque and I thought it was just one of those proverb things, but it sounded too finished. Now I know.

Another one: Knowledge doesn't take up space.

This is the true joy in life: being used for a purpose recognised by yourself as a mighty one; being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; being a force of nature instead of a feverish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

--George Bernard Shaw

It's not a veg*n quote or an inspirational quote, but is sort of relevant to the week.

At Last I can share my favourite Chekov quote! Realise that Chekov died in 1904; I'm not sure when Uncle Vanya was written, but C. was already aware of the influence of trees, and deforestation, on climate change. He was streets ahead of his time.

Doctor Astrov speaks:

"Our forests fall before the axe, billions of trees perishing. The homes of birds and beasts are being laid waste. The level of the rivers falls, and they dry up. Sublime landscapes dissappear, never to return, because man hasn't sense enough to bend down and pick fuel up from the ground. Isn't this so? What must human beings be, to destroy what we can never create? God's given us reason and power of thought so that we can improve our lot. What have we used these powers for but waste? We've destroyed the forest, the rivers run dry, our wildlife is all but extinct, and every day--every day--wherever one looks our life is more hideous...perhaps it's naive on my part, perhaps you think that, but I've passed by woods that I've saved from the axe and I hear the forest sighing. I planted that forest, and I think perhaps things may be in our power. You understand? Perhaps the climate itself is in our control. Why not? And if in one thousand years man is happy I will have played a part in that happiness--a small part."

Get the DVD of "Vanya on 42nd Street" if you can. You'll like it. It has a very young Julianne Moore in it. The first 10 min or so you may sit there and think "Whaaa??" but then you get into it. It's one of those films I don't know how many times I've seen/listened to. When I seriously can't sleep I put it on with my headphones and relax, listening to it. Lots of talk, not a lot of action (it's a film of the play), but a lovely film. The actors are stupendous.

"I long ago realised that if the Muses themselves were to write a book, it would still not win more renown than the outpourings of complete imbeciles, and so never had any ambition that my works might be valued among men."
--Galen (considered the father of Western medicine) ca. 175 AD

Grant me the serenity to accept the people I cannot change, the courage to change the one I can, and the wisdom to know it's me.
