“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ”—

Don’t you ever say that you are passionate about the environment, claim to be an environmentalist and not be vegan.The number one thing you can do to save our planet is to cut animal products out of your diet.

“Is slavery – owner, victim, profit, domination – exclusive to the human race? Have blacks, Jews, women, and children been the only victims of this atrocity? Have cows not been enslaved? What about pigs, chickens, turkeys, fish, sheep? If they’re not enslaved, what are they? Free? Can slavery have a victim that is neither human nor animal? Have not the oceans, the forests, the earth itself, become victims of ownership too? And what about a slaughterhouse? House… of… slaughter: slaughterhouse. Do you really think there is such a thing as ‘humane’ slaughter? What exactly is your definition of ‘humane?’ I’m curious; do you think there is such a thing as ‘humane’ rape? ‘Humane’ child molestation? ‘Humane’ slavery? How about ‘humane’ holocaust? In fact, what is your definition of holocaust? Is it a massacre of human beings or a massacre of innocent beings? I thought it was innocent… Which brings us to the biggest holocaust of all: every year in America, without mercy, we murder 10 billion land animals and 18 billion marine animals. Not for health, survival, sustenance, or self defense. People eat meat, cheese, milk, and eggs for four reasons: habit, tradition, convenience, taste.”—Best Speech You Will Ever Hear - Gary Yourofsky (via raw-vegan)
