Life is like a boat,
I am living permanently in my dream, from which I make brief forays into reality.
The power of imagination makes us infinite.
Compassion is not terrorism.
When everyone finally wakes up from their brainwashed slumber I’m hoping for one hell of a party!
Eat like you give a damn.
Compassion is the radicalism of our time.
Luminous beings are we…not this crude matter!
Lighting the path to a glorious new Dawn.
To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived, this is to have succeeded.
May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view…where something strange and more beautiful and more full of wonder than your deepest dreams waits for you.
Radiate boundless love towards the entire world — above, below, and across — unhindered, without ill will, without enmity.
Strive for a better you, now!
If you hear a voice within you say “you cannot paint,” then by all means paint and that voice will be silenced.
In the great scheme of things what matters is not how long you live, but why you live, what you stand for and what you are willing to die for.
Take ‘I can’t’ out of your vocabulary because then, and only then, will you see that the only thing you can’t do is fail.
Just because something’s always been done a certain way, doesn’t make it right.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed it’s the only thing that ever does.
If you are not on the edge, you are taking up too much room.
The mind’s first step to self-awareness must be through the body.
Don’t spend your whole life wondering if you can do it.
A race is like a work of art; it is a creation that requires not only technique and work but also inspiration to reach a satisfactory outcome.
When one begins to live by habit and by quotation, one has begun to stop living.
KISS is the greatest rock and roll band ever.
I change myself, I change the world.
Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind
For me, it is far better to grasp the Universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.
A traveller am I and a navigator, and every day I discover a new region within my soul.
If we could live happy and healthy lives without harming others…why wouldn’t we?
In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.
Who dares wins.
Peshmerga: those who face death.
Animals are here with us, not for us.
If you have your health you have everything; do not resent growing old. Many are denied the privilege.
Easy is earned.
Compassion is environmental generosity, without direction, without “for me” and without “for them”. It is filled with joy, spontaneously existing joy.
Could you look an animal in the eyes & say to it, ‘My appetite is more important than your suffering’?
The most striking quality that humans and animals have in common is the capacity to experience suffering.
Run often and run long, but never outrun your joy of running.
One cannot think well love well sleep well (run well) if one has not dined well.
A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.
Eat plants, love animals.
A simple rule: every day be sure you wake.
Be the change you wish to see in the world.
And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.
Anything is good if it’s made of chocolate.
Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will.
We’re all water from different rivers, one day we’ll evaporate together.
I ditched work today. Took a train out to Montauk. I don’t know why, I’m not an impulsive person.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.
Scar tissue is stronger than regular tissue. Realize the strength, move on.
Animals don’t want your excuses! There’s no reason for not being vegan!
It’s all in the reflexes.
To end the enslavement and torture, the antidote is veganism.
Real knowledge is to know the extent of one’s ignorance.
If I can’t dance, it’s not my revolution.
Each of us has a fire in our hearts for something. It’s our goal in life to find it and keep it lit.
Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.
If you don’t live for something, you’ll die for nothing.
A day will come when you cannot, today is not that day.
Life is like photography. You need the negatives to develop.
Better lives have been lived in the margins, locked in prisons, and lost on the gallows than have ever been enshrined in palaces.
Animal Liberation, Earth Liberation, Human Liberation, will only come through education.
It’s never too late to be what you might have been.
Too late, I found you can’t wait to become perfect, you got to go out and fall down and get up with everybody else.
It is our choices that show who we truly are, far more than our abilities.
If you don’t stick to your values when they’re being tested, they’re not values. They’re hobbies.
It had long since come to my attention that people of accomplishment rarely sat back and let things happen to them. They went out and happened to things.
I don’t eat doughnuts with boys who exploit women.
The unexamined life is not worth living.
Did that just really happen in the back of the van?
