"Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of survival for life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet."

Albert Einstein



I'd like to reference it in an essay of mine at university and was wondering if anyone knows whether it was from a text of his, or whether they knew about it being in any other book?

They take referencing really serisouly so I don't want to mess it up, and it also looks better than writing 'unknown text' or something vague like that.



Thanks!

That's tough and honestly I have no idea. It's my favorite quote and I use it all the time. I usually reference it to a quotation book I got from the library. After clicking the link posted by bluesand and some research of my own I realize it is going to be very difficult to source properly. Again, it is my favorite quote, but I have used this one too because I can source it correctly... I thought it was too bold but my professor loved it:



Ralph Waldo Emerson, 1803-1882

"You have just dined, and however scrupulously the slaughterhouse is concealed in the graceful distance of miles, there is complicity."

Fate



If you find it, let us know
