I don't know about you guys... but I never tire of reading fun, inspiring, motivating words of wisdom.
Please share you favorite quotes from the raw perspective or otherwise and give us a little insight into what makes you strong, determined, joyful or brave.
A few of my favs:
Where there's no Struggles there's no Strength.
Bathe the cells with the juice and nutrients, water and fiber of fresh, ripe raw, organice fruits and vegetables.
Draw a circle of Paradise around you. Feel clean and sweep out the underbrush. Dissolve toxins, rebellious tissues and issues and harmful stress.
To a worm in horseradish... the whole world is horseradish!
Everything that deceives can also be said to enchant. PLATO
Stimulants = Inconsistance. SULTANA (former coffee/wine/salt abuser)
The truth will set you free - but first, it will piss you off.
Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances for survival of life on Earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet. -Albert Einstein
"Good health is about being able to fully enjoy the time we do have. It is about being as functional as possible throughout our entire lives, and avoiding crippling, painful, lengthy battles with disease. There are many better ways to die and to live." -T. Colin Campbell, The China Study
“I am sometimes asked ‘Why do you spend so much of your time and money talking about kindness to animals when there is so much cruelty to men?’ I answer: ‘I am working at the roots.’” - George Angell
I love these:
An apple a day is not enough - Mike Arnstein
A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes - Hugh Downs
It is easier to go down the hill but the view is much better at the top - Henry Ward Beecher.
Damn. James Cameron just went vegan!! I always said the Na'vi should have been raw vegans. This new surge of celebrities going vegan gives hope to someone like me living in the UK who hasn't even met another VEGAN yet, let alone an 80/10/10er.
Seeing so many people around you with problems you know the answer to is so frustrating at times, but you can't always go off explaining the raw vegan foodstyle every time your lecturer talks about deforestation & soil degradation due to the production of animal products and grains, or your friend has another health issue, or someone you work with goes on weight-watchers (more like weight-botchers), because you don't want to come off preachy.
So to me seeing Usher, Anne Hathaway, Leona Lewis, Bieber and now JAMES CAMERON give veganism a shot is usually the most tangible evidence of the foodstyle gaining traction in the mainstream, so I wanted to share this piece of news with anyone else who sometimes feels like the movement isn't getting anywhere, because this has certainly pepped me up and renewed my determination to inform people about 811, and I hope it does the same for you.
Ok, here is one that has aided me to have a second look at seemingly 'established' methods.
"When did this world become a place where there is only one way to do something?"
- Tim Burton (Film Director)
Which is why most of us here are here I believe; we dared to stand up to the status quo and find out for our selves.
