Funny quote from another board


Weirdness
 Share

Recommended Posts

I worked with a guy from the UK once, and when he was in university, a classmate of his blew his entire student allocation (think OSAP) on stereo equipment. This left him almost no money for things like, oh, food. As a result, he bought a huge bag of oatmeal (IIRC, the classmate was Scottish); his plan was to that three meals a day for the entire term...he got partway in, and ended up with scurvy...

Aloha,

Brad

Would that you could live on the fragrance of the earth, and like an air plant be sustained by the light.

But since you must kill to eat, and rob the newly born of its mother's milk to quench your thirst, let it then be an act of worship.

And let your board stand an alter on which the pure and innocent of forest and plain are sacrificed for that which is purer and still more innocent in man.

When you kill a beast say to him in your heart:

'By the same power that slays you, I too am slain; and I too shall be consumed.

For the law that delivered you into my hand shall deliver me into a mightier hand.

Your blood and my blood is naught but the sap that feeds the tree of heaven.'

And when you crush an apple with your teeth, say to it in your heart:

'Your seeds shall live in my body,

And the buds of your tomorrow shall blossom in my heart,

And your fragrance shall be my breath,

And together we shall rejoice through all the seasons'

-Kahlil Gibran

i am not a vegan because i love fuzzy little animals. i am a vegan because farming of animals takes a huge toll on the environment. i am trying to reduce the impact i leave on the planet. i am not some flakey little animal lover that thinks cows and such have the same rights as humans. if i was starving out in the wilderness you can bet your ass i would chase down bambi and kill it with my teeth if i was hungry enough. but i can be vegan and thus i am. it is my little way of being a tree hugger.
