3/01 Quote of the Day

“A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite.”

– Leo Tolstoy

This is a quote that can appeal to vegetarians and vegans or anyone who is concerned about the well-being of animals. Tolstoy isn’t merely saying that humans should be more considerate of animals, but he also pins the blame on our selfishness to sacrifice a life just to satisfy our appetite.
