To get you super motivated about not eating animals anymore, here are inspiring quotes from some all-star vegan celebrities.
Miley Cyrus: “Be the voice of those who can’t say …..’stop.’ Who can’t say ‘that hurts.’ Who can’t say ‘I’m so afraid to die.’ Be the voice of the animals!”
Stevie Wonder: “I’ve been a vegan for two years … I’m motivating people to do something about how we are living on this planet. We have to be about making our planet more greener, the urban areas more sustainable for the children. We can’t just talk about it, we have to be about it.”
Joaquin Phoenix: “It takes nothing away from a human to be kind to an animal.”
Liam Hemsworth: “There are no negatives to eating like this. I feel nothing but positive, mentally and physically. I love it. I feel like it also has a kind of a domino effect on the rest of my life.”
Alicia Silverstone: “Being vegan helped me realize I can say and do what I believe is right. That’s powerful.”
Kat Von D: “Years of cultural programming have taught us to love some animals while eating others, when in all reality, all animals are sentient beings with the capacity to feel, both physically and emotionally.”
Moby: “Could you look an animal in the eyes and say to it, ‘My appetite is more important than your suffering’?”
Ariana Grande: “I am a firm believer in eating a full plant-based, whole food diet that can expand your life length and make you an all-around happier person.”
Woody Harrelson: “In this world that is spinning madly out of control, we have to realize that we’re all related. We have to try to live harmoniously.”
