I don’t know about you guys, but I love reading powerful, inspiring vegan quotes. Here are just a few of my favourites:
“No one will protect what they don’t care about, and no one will care about what they have never experienced.”Sir David Attenborough
“We can sit back, do nothing and watch our planet be destroyed. Or we can take action, become advocates and start making lifestyle choices which are kinder to people and the planet.”Kira Simpson
“Be the change you wish to see in the world.”Gandhi
“Some people think the “plant-based whole foods diet” is extreme. Half a million people a year will have their chests opened up and a vein taken from their leg and sewn on their coronary artery. Some would call that extreme.”Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn
“Could you look an animal in the eyes and say to it, ‘My appetite is more important than your suffering?”Moby
“I remember very clearly the day my mom made chicken fingers. I was like, ‘Wait, this was alive? This had parents? I’m not eating it anymore.”Jenna Dewan-Tatum
“You put a baby in a crib with an apple and a rabbit. If it eats the rabbit and plays with the apple, I’ll buy you a new car.”Harvey Diamond
“When I see bacon, I see a pig, I see a little friend, and that’s why I can’t eat it. Simple as that.”Paul McCartney
“It takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal.”JOAQUIN PHOENIX
Joaquin Phoenix is by far one of my favourite actors. If you disagree, did you not see him in the Joker?!
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”Margaret Mead
“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference and you have to decide what kind of a difference you want to make.”Jane Goodall
“If you don’t like seeing pictures of violence towards animals being posted, you need to help stop the violence, not the pictures.”Johnny Depp
“People may hate you for being different and not living by society’s standards but deep down, they wish they had the courage to do the same.”Anonymous
“My own view is that being a vegetarian or vegan is not an end in itself, but a means towards reducing both human and animal suffering and leaving a habitable planet to future generations.”Peter Singer
Sometimes, I find it really helps me looking at powerful quotes from vegans to re-assure that I am doing the right thing. I also love how many celebs have transitioned over to a vegan diet, as they can have a huge positive impact with the amount of influence they have.
