30 Bananas a Day!

If you find that those around you do not understand your way of thinking, and if you feel that you are alone in your perspective, consider the
positions of some of the greatest minds in history:

Albert Schweitzer:
“Our task must be to free ourselves… by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”

Leonardo da Vinci:
“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.”

Mahatma Gandhi:
“The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.”

Count Leo Tolstoy:
“As long as there are slaughterhouses, there will be battlefields.”

Socrates:
“The highest realms of thought are impossible to reach without first attaining an understanding of compassion.”

And remember… You are in good company.

Thanks! Wonderful post :)
My favourite vegan quote comes from Plutarch, a first-century A.D philosopher who had plenty to say about eating animals but this is the line that always stands out for me:

"But for the sake of some little mouthful of flesh we deprive a soul of the sun and light, and of that proportion of life and time it had been born into the world to enjoy. "
