Anybody know any good quotes? Preferably about veganism but any topic is good.

Here is one that I made up

"Survival of the fittest doesn't mean exploitation of the weakest"

I like your quote, Adam.

Not a vegan quote, and a simple one, but one I've always liked nonetheless:

Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. - M.L.K., Jr.

Here's some more:

True human goodness, in all its purity and freedom, can come to the fore only when its recipient has no power. Mankind's true moral test, its fundamental test (which lies deeply from view), consists of its attitude towards those who are at its mercy: animals. And in this respect mankind has suffered a fundamental debacle, a debacle so fundamental that all others stem from it. - Milan Kundera

This one is pretty strong. I wish more people didn't shy away from making the comparison with the Holocaust. It's a fair comparison, and in fact the current Holocaust is worse, for the reason J.M. Coetzee says:

Let me say it openly: we are surrounded by an enterprise of degradation, cruelty, and killing which rivals anything the Third Reich was capable of, indeed dwarfs it, in that ours is an enterprise without end, self-regenerating, bringing rabbits, rats, poultry, livestock ceaselessly into the world for the purpose of killing them. - J.M. Coetzee

Take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. - Elie Wiesel

Our grandchildren will ask us one day: Where were you during the Holocaust of the animals? What did you do against these horrifying crimes? We won't be able to offer the same excuse for the second time, that we didn't know. - Dr. Helmut Kaplan

Direct action is always the clamorer, the initiator, through which the great sum of indifferentists become aware that oppression is getting intolerable. - Voltairine de Cleyre

-the last words of Herman J. Feldman, the inventor of a robotic barber prototype

"and I stand

upon a mountain

made of weak and useless men"

I made one up that I told my kids (but it is true).

90% of the time when you do something stupid, nothing bad happens. 90% of the time when something bad happens, you've done something stupid.

George Jones song title that could be a quote:

If Drinking Don't Kill Me (Her Memory Will).
