Quotes By Kerry McCarthy

What you eat is something you can change quite easily. And what's ideal about this, as a first step to living a more compassionate life in general, is the fact that animals aren't going to thank you for it. No one is going to give you a medal for going vegan. People might even call you weird. That's good because your motivation for doing it, therefore, is pure compassion untainted by any personal gain. You'll realize what you gain health-wise later on, but if you practice this compassion three times a day, it changes how you live in general. And you will have taken back some of what makes you human.

I think human empathy is a bit flawed. If it's not happening somewhere we can see it; we don't really remember it's happening at all. So this practice of reminding oneself and reminding others: 'this happens all the time, and it's happening now, and it's happening to creatures that aren't that different from us. They're sentient as well. They feel pain.' I think that's a good practice.

Quote Of The Day

There is no fundamental difference between man and the higher animals in their mental faculties... The lower animals, like man, manifestly feel pleasure and pain, happiness, and misery.
