“When we clog and cloy our body with flesh, we also render our mind and intellect coarse. When the body’s clogged with unnatural food, the mind becomes confused and dull and loses its cheerfulness. Such minds engage in trivial pursuits, because they lack the clearness and vigor for higher thinking." - Plutarch
“Hope has two beautiful daughters; their names are Anger and Courage . . . Anger at the way things are, and Courage to see that they do not remain as they are.” - St. Augustine
"Custom will reconcile people to any atrocity; and fashion will drive them to acquire any custom" - George Bernard Shaw
"We are all prisoners of our past taste preferences" - T. Colin Campbell
I have been vegan since Sunday September 9th, 2007. To me, this is more than a diet, more than just a question of what to eat for dinner. It is a way of life which brings me peace, fulfillment and a purpose - something which was somehow lacking before.
I'm not sure where this journey will take me, but it is a very interesting road.
Stay vegan, friends!
