Top Vegetarians Quotes

Vegetarians Quotes By B.R. Ambedkar

There is one taboo against meat-eating. It divides Hindus into vegetarians and flesh eaters. There is another taboo which is against beef eating. It divides Hindus into those who eat cow's flesh and those who do not. — B.R. Ambedkar

Vegetarians Quotes By B.R. Ambedkar

The Touchables, whether they are vegetarians or flesh-eaters, are united in their objection to eat cow's flesh. As against them stand the Untouchables, who eat cow's flesh without compunction and as a matter of course and habit. — B.R. Ambedkar

Vegetarians Quotes By Rajneesh

No vegetarian has been able to achieve a single Nobel prize. It is a clear-cut condemnation of vegetarianism. Why do all the Nobel prizes go to non-vegetarians? - because vegetarian food does not contain those proteins which create intelligence. And unless we provide those proteins, intelligence cannot grow. The body is a very delicate phenomenon and it needs a very well balanced diet. — Rajneesh

Vegetarians Quotes By Ingrid Newkirk

Going meat-free can make a huge difference. Studies show that vegetarians are, on average, 10 to 20 pounds lighter than meat-eaters and that a vegetarian diet reduces our risk of heart disease by 40 percent and adds seven or more years to our lifespan. — Ingrid Newkirk

Vegetarians Quotes By Bertrand Russell

The raw fruits of the earth were made for human sustenance. Even the white tails of rabbits, according to some theologians, have a purpose, namely to make it easier for sportsmen to shoot them. There are, it is true, some inconveniences: lions and tigers are too fierce, the summer is too hot, and the winter too cold. But these things only began after Adam ate the apple; I before that, all animals were vegetarians, and the season was always spring. If only Adam had been content with peaches and nectarines, grapes and pears and pineapples, these blessings would still be ours. — Bertrand Russell

Vegetarians Quotes By Elizabeth Gilbert

You don't like it?" asked Luca, who loves this stuff.
"I bet Gandhi never ate lamb intestines in his life," I said.
"He could have."
"No, he couldn't have, Luca. Gandhi was a vegetarian."
"But vegetarians CAN eat this," Luca insisted. "Because intestines aren't even meat, Liz. They're just shit. — Elizabeth Gilbert

Vegetarians Quotes By Rajneesh

My disciples are vegetarian not as a cult, not as a creed. They are vegetarians because their meditations make them more human, more of the heart, and they can see the whole stupidity of people killing living beings for their food. It is their sensitivity, their aesthetic awareness that makes them vegetarians. — Rajneesh

Vegetarians Quotes By Alan Wolfe

Conservatives cannot govern well for the same reason that vegetarians cannot prepare a world-class boeuf bourguignon: If you believe that what you are called upon to do is wrong, you are not likely to do it very well. — Alan Wolfe

Vegetarians Quotes By Joseph Campbell

Vegetarians are people who cannot hear tomatos screaming. — Joseph Campbell

Vegetarians Quotes By G.I. Gurdjieff

Meat is necessary when there is hard physical work to be done, or in a very cold climate, or when edible plants cannot be found ... Animal flesh provides all the substances we need, both for the intensive working of our organism and for maintaining a normal temperature in cold climates. — G.I. Gurdjieff

Vegetarians Quotes By C.S. Lewis

He didn't call his father and mother 'Father' and 'Mother' but Harold and Alberta. They were very up to date and advanced people. They were vegetarians, non-smokers and teetotalers, and wore a special kind of underclothes. In their house there was very little furniture and very few clothes on the beds and the windows were always open. — C.S. Lewis

Vegetarians Quotes By Yotam Ottolenghi

Vegetarians in general don't like me. — Yotam Ottolenghi

Vegetarians Quotes By Jonathan Safran Foer

Vegetarians are at best kindly but unrealistic. At worst they are delusional sentimentalists. — Jonathan Safran Foer

Vegetarians Quotes By Stephenie Meyer

I can't be sure, of course, but I'd compare it to living on tofu and soy milk; we call ourselves vegetarians, our little inside joke. - Edward Cullen — Stephenie Meyer

Vegetarians claim to be immune from most diseases but they have been known to die from time to time. — George Bernard Shaw

Vegetarians Quotes By Sathya Sai Baba

It is significant to note that those who live on vegetarian food are less prone to diseases, whereas non-vegetarians are subject to more diseases. Why? Because animal food is incompatible with the needs of the human body. — Sathya Sai Baba

Vegetarians Quotes By Blanche McCrary Boyd

Did you really say y'all to me? Did i actually make a political statement to which your non sequitur reply was, 'Are y'all vegetarians? — Blanche McCrary Boyd

Vegetarians Quotes By Margaret MacMillan

Part of Nietzsche's appeal was that it was easy to read a great deal into his work, and people including socialists, vegetarians, feminists, conservatives and, later, the Nazis did. Sadly, Nietzsche was not available to explain himself; he went mad in 1889 and died in 1900, the year of the Paris Exposition. — Margaret MacMillan

Vegetarians Quotes By Joanne Stepaniak

Vegans and vegetarians are commonly baited by nonvegetarians with "what if" scenarios that typically have no relevance to or bearing on most people's real-life situations. — Joanne Stepaniak

Vegetarians Quotes By Tyler Cowen

I'm not a vegetarian. But I think people who are vegetarians, they are actually more virtuous than the rest of us. I think they should be admired. — Tyler Cowen

Vegetarians Quotes By Helen And Scott Nearing

Vegetarians, dropping meat, tend to fill up with too much starch. This leaves them no more healthy than meat-eaters, with constipation, indigestion, colds, catarrhs, coughs and chest complaints to plague them. Eating sparingly of breads, cakes, crackers, cookies, macaroni, spaghetti, anything largely starch, is a far step on the road to good health. — Helen And Scott Nearing

Vegetarians Quotes By Dirk Benedict

We are all vegetarians here, and except for a mountain lion that's been hanging around and killed our dog, we don't have a care in the world. — Dirk Benedict

Vegetarians Quotes By William Monahan

I started out as a writer with an hour removed from Kingdom of Heaven. You have to make one print for the entire world, and that's something that influences the theatrical cuts of pictures to an enormous degree. It's a reality. You can't have one cut for the Sunni, and one for the Shia, and one each for Tories, Whigs, vegetarians, one cut for the Cineplex, and one for literary intellectuals. — William Monahan

Vegetarians Quotes By Adam Carolla

They're not vegetarians because they love cows and pigs, it's because they love attention. — Adam Carolla

Vegetarians Quotes By Jonathan Safran Foer

My wife and I have chosen to bring up our children as vegetarians. In another time or place, we might have made a different decision. But the realities of our present moment compelled us to make that choice. — Jonathan Safran Foer

Vegetarians Quotes By Jonathan Safran Foer

Elsewhere the paper notes that vegetarians and vegans (including athletes) 'meet and exceed requirements' for protein. And, to render the whole we-should-worry-about-getting-enough-protein-and-therefore-eat-meat idea even more useless, other data suggests that excess animal protein intake is linked with osteoporosis, kidney disease, calcium stones in the urinary tract, and some cancers. Despite some persistent confusion, it is clear that vegetarians and vegans tend to have more optimal protein consumption than omnivores. — Jonathan Safran Foer

Vegetarians Quotes By Anthony Bourdain

For their own good, vegetarians should never be allowed near fine beers and ales. It will only make them loud and belligerent, and they lack the physical strength and aggressive nature to back up any drunken assertions. — Anthony Bourdain

Vegetarians Quotes By Steve Albini

The woman I am currently crazy about was a vegetarian for a year until I started dating her. As is the case with most vegetarians, she had never eaten properly prepared meat, only commercially packaged or otherwise abused flesh. — Steve Albini

Vegetarians Quotes By Scott Adams

You're thinking I'm one of those wise-ass California vegetarians who is going to tell you that eating a few strips of bacon is bad for your health. I'm not. I say its a free country and you should be able to kill yourself at any rate you choose, as long as your cold dead body is not blocking my driveway. — Scott Adams

Vegetarians Quotes By Anthony Bourdain

Vegetarians are the enemy of everything good and decent in the human spirit, an affront to all I stand for, the pure enjoyment of food. — Anthony Bourdain

Vegetarians Quotes By Christie Brinkley

Nutrition has always played a huge role in my life. I became a vegetarian when I was 13 and then got my entire family to become vegetarians. And I have always been active my whole life. I genuinely enjoy sports and I spend time on my total gym. — Christie Brinkley

Vegetarians Quotes By Jonathan Safran Foer

I can't count the times that upon telling someone I am vegetarian, he or she responded by pointing out an inconsistency in my lifestyle or trying to find a flaw in an argument I never made. (I have often felt that my vegetarianism matters more to such people than it does to me.) — Jonathan Safran Foer

Vegetarians Quotes By Julie Ann Dawson

Then you have this other phenomena of the paranormal romance. It's all the benefits of being a vampire without the sacrifices. By the gods, Meyer's vampires walk around sparkling in the daylight and some are vegetarians. But this phenomenon is also tied to a lot of our communal fears. Fear of aging. Fear of fading youth. Fear of loneliness. But whereas the classic motifs are more concerned with confronting and overcoming our fears, the fears of the paranormal romance genre become twisted fantasies of denial. The idea of staying young, attractive and powerful for eternity feeds into the modern self-absorbed ethos. — Julie Ann Dawson

Vegetarians Quotes By Lierre Keith

Inhabitants of urban industrial cultures have no point of contact with grain, chickens, cows, or, for that matter, with topsoil. We have no basis of experience to outweigh the arguments of political vegetarians. We have no idea what plants, animals, or soil eat, or how much. Which means we have no idea what we ourselves are eating. — Lierre Keith

Vegetarians Quotes By Lish McBride

I had an affinity for pandas. Something about clumsy vegetarians struck a chord with me. — Lish McBride

Vegetarians Quotes By Austin Clarke

In my mother's book, a vegetarian is somebody who is not concern with his or her diet and health. "Someone who prefer bush and grass, as if they is sheeps and cows, is somebody who don't have enough food to put in his mouth," she always say.
Only vegetarians eat dryfood regularly - and like to eat it, too. It is not considered normal for a person to cook food that doesn't have some amount o' meat or fish to go with it. Only someone who is starving, who don't have money to buy a fish head or a single flying fish or even the head of a dolphin - in other words, a person who is "catching his arse" - has to eat dryfood. A person at this stage is a person one remove from having to cook bakes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. — Austin Clarke

Vegetarians Quotes By Rick Yancey

I don't know, maybe imminent peril made him feel more alive somehow, for the same reason zombies are carnivores with only one item on the menu. You never heard of undead vegetarians. Where's the challenge in attacking a plate of asparagus? — Rick Yancey

Vegetarians Quotes By Nathan Pritikin

Vegetarians always ask about getting enough protein. But I don't know any nutrition expert (who) can plan a diet of natural foods resulting in a protein deficiency, so long as you're not deficient in calories. You need only 5 or 6 percent of total calories in protein ... and it is pratically impossible to get below 9 percent in ordinary diets. — Nathan Pritikin

Vegetarians Quotes By Maria Holmes

Since Parmesan cheese is made with rennet, which is derived from the stomach of slaughtered cows, some vegetarians may choose not to utilize it. You may instead substitute the Parmesan cheese for nutritional yeast. — Maria Holmes

Vegetarians Quotes By Sherman Alexie

When are we left-wingers going to learn that we are losing the cultural and political battle with conservatives because we are fractured into narcissistic special-interest groups? Why should an antiwar protestor be so concerned about her dietary identity? The political opinions of vegetarians and meat-eaters are, after all, equally important. And what does it tell us about vegetarians that it would never occur to meat-eaters to carry a sign that reads "Pacifist Pork Chop Lover for Peace" or "Backyard Rib Barbecuer for International Nuclear Disarmament"? — Sherman Alexie

Vegetarians Quotes By Gabriel Garcia Marquez

He soon acquired the forlorn look that one sees in vegetarians. — Gabriel Garcia Marquez

Vegetarians Quotes By Ja Rule

Right now, I'm pro-leave beef alone. Big shout-out to all the vegetarians who don't want beef! — Ja Rule

Vegetarians Quotes By Ali Vali

Sometimes I like to compare people who don't like women to vegetarians."
"Interesting analogy, and I do like the way your mind works, so lay it on me." He opened the door and waved her in.
"If God had meant for people to be vegetarians, a good steak wouldn't taste so divine. Following that line of thinking, neither would a woman. — Ali Vali

Vegetarians Quotes By Andy Rooney

I often pass a farm with cows grazing in the field and I think to myself how terrible it is that human beings grow other animals just to kill them and eat them. Most of us think of vegetarians as nuts and I'm not a vegetarian but I wouldn't be surprised if we came to a time in 50 or 100 years when civilized people everywhere refused to eat animals. — Andy Rooney

Vegetarians Quotes By Johnny B. Truant

I'm considered a health nut amongst vampires. I usually feed only on vegetarians. — Johnny B. Truant

Vegetarians Quotes By Irina Tweedie

I sometimes find the vegetarians are more conditioned and more dogmatic than anything else, more than the religion. It's terrible, you must chew the food I don't know how many times, this you mustn't eat and this you must do, goodness me! — Irina Tweedie

Vegetarians Quotes By Jasper Fforde

The cucumber and the tomato are both fruit; the avocado is a nut. To assist with the dietary requirements of vegetarians, on the first Tuesday of the month a chicken is officially a vegetable. — Jasper Fforde

The are two types of vegetarians: (1) those who have beef with chicken; and (2) those who are too chicken to have beef. — Mokokoma Mokhonoana

Vegetarians Quotes By Kirsten Dunst

Vegetarians Quotes By George Carlin

Bowling is not a sport because you have to rent the shoes. When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops? This title offends all three major religions, and even vegetarians! — George Carlin

Vegetarians Quotes By Yves Montand

Pacifists are like sheep who believe that wolves are vegetarians. — Yves Montand

Vegetarians Quotes By Peter Singer

Some vegetarians and vegans may object to in vitro meat, because they don't see the need for meat at all. That's fine for them, and of course they are free to remain vegetarians and vegans and choose not to eat in vitro meat. — Peter Singer

Vegetarians Quotes By C.S. Lewis

They were very up-to-date and advanced people. They were vegetarians, non-smokers and teetotalers and wore a special kind of underclothes. In — C.S. Lewis

Vegetarians Quotes By John Robbins

Studies indicate that vegetarians often have lower morbidity and mortality rates ... Not only is mortality from coronary artery disease lower in vegetarians than in non-vegetarians, but vegetarian diets have also been successful in arresting coronary artery disease. Scientific data suggest positive relationships between a vegetarian diet and reduced risk for obesity, coronary artery disease, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, and some types of cancer. — John Robbins

Vegetarians Quotes By Steven Wright

If vegetarians eat vegetables, what do humanitarians eat — Steven Wright

Vegetarians Quotes By Bill Vaughan

Are there any vegetarians among cannibals? — Bill Vaughan

Vegetarians Quotes By Naomi Klein

As the political scientist Michael Wolfe puts it, "Conservatives cannot govern well for the same reason that vegetarians cannot prepare a world-class boeuf bourguignon: If you believe that what you are called upon to do is wrong, you are unlikely to do it very well." He adds, "As a way of governing, conservatism is another name for disaster."30 — Naomi Klein

Vegetarians Quotes By David Sedaris

Nothing irritated her more than these high-and-mighty vegetarians who ate meat sometimes and then decided that it didn't really count. — David Sedaris

Vegetarians Quotes By Chogyam Trungpa

This is not to say that the point of the hard way is that we must be heroic. The attitude of "heroism" is based upon the assumption that we are bad, impure,
that we are not worthy, are not ready for spiritual understanding. We must reform ourselves, be different from what we are. For instance, if we are middle class Americans, we must give up our jobs or drop out of college, move out of our suburban homes, let our hair
grow, perhaps try drugs. If we are hippies, we must give up drugs, cut our hair short, throw away our torn jeans. We think that we are special, heroic, that we are turning away from temptation. We become vegetarians and we become this and that. There are so many things to become. We think our
path is spiritual because it is literally against the flow of what we used to be, but it is merely the way of false heroism, and the only one who is heroic in this way is ego. — Chogyam Trungpa

Vegetarians Quotes By Stephen King

One of those gated communities where there's one token African-American couple and four token Jewish couples. Children and vegetarians are not allowed. Residents must vote Republican and own small dogs with rhinestone collars, stupid eyes, and names that end in i. Taffi is good, Cassi is better, and something like Rififi is the total shit. — Stephen King

Vegetarians Quotes By Project Itoh

Heidrich and Himmler tried to eliminate obesity among the SS, Professor Saeki said. Himmler's dream was that one day, all Germans would be vegetariansProject Itoh

Vegetarians Quotes By Jeremy Clarkson

Cows eat grass and silage. This is melting the ice caps and killing us all. So they need a new foodstuff: something that is rich in iron, calcium and natural goodness. Plainly they cannot eat meat so here is an idea to chew on. Why not feed them vegetarians? — Jeremy Clarkson

Vegetarians Quotes By Ardal O'Hanlon

I make a lot of jokes about vegetarians in my act but most of them don't have the strength to protest. — Ardal O'Hanlon

Vegetarians Quotes By Jim Gaffigan

There are people that are vegetarians that love bacon. — Jim Gaffigan

Vegetarians Quotes By Robert Louis Stevenson

Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet we make the same impression on Buddhists and vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our own. — Robert Louis Stevenson

Vegetarians Quotes By Jonathan Safran Foer

I know lots and lots and lots of vegetarians who think it's perfectly all right to kill animals for food to eat, but don't do it because they think all the ways in which it's done are wrong. — Jonathan Safran Foer

Vegetarians Quotes By Beth Ditto

Olympia was a town crawling with music. I was new to the whole punk scene. The culture shock continued; Olympia had bagels! We didn't have bagels in Arkansas. You could order vegetarian food all over town! It was so crazy to me - a place with so many vegetarians, the restaurants made special dishes for them? — Beth Ditto

Vegetarians Quotes By Anthony Bourdain

I admire vegetarians who refuse to eat nothing but vegetables in their homes, but I also admire those who put aside those principles or those preferences when they travel. Just to be a good guest. — Anthony Bourdain

Vegetarians Quotes By Janet Jackson

When we were growing up, all of us kids were vegetarians. No one had asked me to stop eating meat - I just noticed everyone else around me had stopped, so I followed the crew. — Janet Jackson

Vegetarians Quotes By Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

However healthy you think you are, remember that vegetarians die too. — Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Vegetarians Quotes By Lisa Edelstein

At work, we have fantastic catering people. They feed the cast and crew all day, and they're sensitive to the needs of picky vegetarians like me. They have delicious salads. I keep mine simple: romaine lettuce, avocado, baked tofu, carrots, tomatoes and Asian dressing. — Lisa Edelstein

Vegetarians Quotes By Chef Deniz

Only few people know that Turkey is the vegetarians' paradise. — Chef Deniz

Vegetarians Quotes By Alicia Silverstone

Not that I say,"Oh,I'm not going to associate with certain people.," but I have my world,and I only want to be around people who I feel stimulated by. I have to be honest I do have a new quest: I want to meet more vegetarians,people who are more like minded. There's something real neat about that feeling. It makes you feel so settled to know there's somebody else sitting right there,being so passionate about what I'm passionate about. I don't want to be around selfish people. I try to keep myself surrounded by deep people who will move me. — Alicia Silverstone

Vegetarians Quotes By Robert Anton Wilson

To me, it doesn't matter if your scapegoats are the Jews, the homosexuals, the male sex, the Masons, the Jesuits, the Welfare Parasites, the Power Elite, the female sex, the vegetarians, or the Communist Party. To the extent that you need a scapegoat, you simply have not got your brain programmed to work as an efficient problem-solving machine. — Robert Anton Wilson

Vegetarians Quotes By Molly Ivins

I know vegetarians don't like to hear this, but God made an awful lot of land that's good for nothing but grazing. — Molly Ivins

Vegetarians Quotes By Mahatma Gandhi

I have known many meat eaters to be far more nonviolent than vegetarians. — Mahatma Gandhi

Vegetarians Quotes By Wolfgang Puck

It's a myth that generally Asians are mostly vegetarians. The Japanese are the kings of red meat, but it's expensive. The Chinese and Vietnamese love their pork. Many Indians, especially the Muslims, can't live without their lamb. — Wolfgang Puck

Vegetarians Quotes By Bob Spitz

Julia dealt with rules the way she later dealt with vegetarians; she pretended they didn't exist. — Bob Spitz

Vegetarians Quotes By Ted Nugent

Vegetarians are cool. All I eat are vegetarians - except for the occasional mountain lion steak. — Ted Nugent

Vegetarians Quotes By Toby Hemenway

Vegetarians may be appalled, but much of gardening is actually raising animals: the tiny ones under the earth's surface — Toby Hemenway

Vegetarians Quotes By Graeme Simsion

Vegetarians and vegans can be incredibly annoying. Gene has a joke: How can you tell if someone is a vegan? Just wait ten minutes and they'll tell you. — Graeme Simsion

Vegetarians Quotes By Gabriel Cousens

My own experience as a person with blood type O was that my health, strength, and vitality significantly improved when I became a vegetarian ... I have also found a significant number of very healthy vegetarians who are Type O. — Gabriel Cousens

Vegetarians Quotes By T. Colin Campbell

Vegetarians Quotes By Antony Worrall Thompson

I am sure vegetarians must also account for a lot of gases. Look how many beans they eat. — Antony Worrall Thompson

Vegetarians Quotes By Dennis Weaver

I became a vegetarian in 1958 and it was very difficult in those days to really maintain that because there weren't many options ... alternatives. But, now, it's a growing trend because ... the economics are there. See, there's simply enough people demanding it that it's profitable to supply vegetarians with those products. — Dennis Weaver

Vegetarians Quotes By Michael Specter

Meat supplies a variety of nutrients - among them iron, zinc, and Vitamin B12 - that are not readily found in plants. We can survive without it; millions of vegetarians choose to do so, and billions of others have that choice imposed upon them by poverty. — Michael Specter

Vegetarians Quotes By Ernest Howard Crosby

If we each had to butcher our own meat, there would be a great increase in the number of vegetarians. — Ernest Howard Crosby

Vegetarians Quotes By Virchand Gandhi

The heart of vegetarians is healed sooner than those of flesh-eaters. — Virchand Gandhi

Vegetarians Quotes By Brian Awehali

I don't believe vegans (or vegetarians) who still get their (packaged, preservative/chemical-ridden) food from industrial food systems have any righteous ground to stand on, nor do I think a deep look at the sentient life of plants or the true environmental impact of agriculture permits them any comfortable distance from cruelty. Everything in this world eats something else to survive, and that something else, whether running on blood or chlorophyll, would always rather continue to live rather than become sustenance for another. No animal wants to be penned up and milked, or caged and harvested, and you've never seen plants growing in regimented lines of their own accord. — Brian Awehali

Vegetarians Quotes By J.B. Morton

Vegetarians have wicked, shifty eyes, and laugh in a cold calculating manner. They pinch little children, steal stamps, drink water, favor beards. — J.B. Morton

Vegetarians Quotes By Suresh Raina

My family members are vegetarians, but I like mutton and chicken seekh kebabs. — Suresh Raina

Vegetarians Quotes By Melanie Joy

In much of the industrialized world, we eat meat not because we have to; we eat meat because we choose to. We don't need meat to survive or even to be healthy; millions of healthy and long-lived vegetarians have proven this point. We eat animals simply because it's what we've always done, and because we like the way they taste. Most of us eat animals because it's just the way things are. — Melanie Joy

Vegetarians Quotes By Leonard Cohen

Secret kabals of vegetarians habitually gather under the sign to exchange contraband from beyond the Vegetable Barrier. In their pinpoint eyes dances their old dream: the Total Fast. One of them reports a new atrocity published without compassionate comment by the editors of Scientific American: "It has been established that, when pulled from the ground, a radish produces an electronic scream." Not even the triple bill for 65 will comfort them tonight. With a mad laugh born of despair, one of them throws himself on a hot-dog stand, disintegrating on the first chew into pathetic withdrawal symptoms. The rest watch him mournfully and then separate into the Montreal entertainment section. The news is more serious than any of them thought. One is ravished by a steak house with sidewalk ventilation. In a restaurant, one argues with the waiter that he ordered "tomato" but then in a suicide of gallantry he agrees to accept the spaghetti, meat sauce mistake. — Leonard Cohen

Vegetarians Quotes By Carol J. Adams

In a situation where flesh is consumed, vegetarians inevitably call attention to themselves. They have made something absent on their plates; perhaps a verbal demurral has been required as well. They then are drawn into a discussion regarding their vegetarianism. Frequently, there will be someone present who actually feels hostile to vegetarianism and regards it as a personal challenge. If this is the case, all sorts of outrageous issues are thrown out to see how the vegetarian will handle them. The vegetarian, enthusiastic reformer, sees the opportunity as one of education; but it is not. instead it is a teasing game of manipulation. At times, ludicrous questions are raised; they imply that the entire discussion is ludicrous. — Carol J. Adams

Vegetarians Quotes By Oscar Wilde

You can't possibly ask me to go without having some dinner. It's absurd. I never go without my dinner. No one ever does, except vegetarians and people like that. — Oscar Wilde

Vegetarians Quotes By Morarji Desai

I do not say that one who is vegetarian is full of compassion and one who is not, is otherwise. We sometimes find people, who are vegetarians, are very bad people. — Morarji Desai
