“If we aren't supposed to eat animals, then why are they made out of meat?”
Jo Brand, British comedian.
“If the hecatomb of animals we have each consumed in the years we have lived, were marshalled in array before us, we should stand aghast at the possibility of our ever having devoured the quantity of animal food, and sacrificed for out daily meals the goodly number of well-fed quadrupeds of the ovine, bovine, and porcine races, or the fish, fowl, reptiles, and insects, which would thus be re-embodied.”
Peter Lund Simmonds, 'The Curiosities of Food' (1859)
“‘Well said, M. Aronnax,’ replied the Canadian, whose teeth seemed sharpened like the edge of a hatchet; ‘but I will eat tiger -- loin of tiger -- if there is no other quadruped on this island.’"
Ned Land in Jules Verne's 'Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea' (1870)
"Greater eaters of meat are in general more cruel and ferocious than other men."
Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-78)
“Man is a carnivorous production,
And must have meals, at least one meal a day;
He cannot live, like woodcocks, upon suction,
But, like the shark and tiger, must have prey;
Although his anatomical construction
Bears vegetables, in a grumbling way,
Your laboring people think beyond all question,
Beef, veal, and mutton better for digestion.”
Lord Byron (1788-1824) ‘Don Juan’
