Vegetarian Quotes. I used to be a meat lover.
And oh man, how I loved to eat meat! But when I stopped to think about what I was doing (I mean really think , i.e., to reflect deeply on the subject), the remorse was so big that I would get depressed. Luckily, being a vegetarian is much easier and much more fun than I first imagined :-) Urbana, july/2000. "For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love. " "The time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men.
