Alberto Caeiro
“If I knew I was going to die tomorrow,
And Spring came the day after tomorrow,
I would die peacefully, because it came the day after tomorrow.
If that’s its time, when else should it come?
I like it that everything is real and everything is right;
And I like that it would be like this even if I didn’t like it.
And so, if I die now, I die peacefully
Because everything is real and everything is right.”
Alberto Caeiro, The Collected Poems of Alberto Caeiro

“We were all born to be peaceful citizens of the world. Take care of your global garden and do not allow evil gardeners to try and convince you which flowers are ugly and which should be destroyed. This is God's universe and he is the master gardener of all. If you see ugliness in his creations, then you see ugliness in our Creator. Wake up. If we eliminate all colors in his garden, then what would be a rainbow with only one color? And what would be a garden with only one kind of flower? Why would the Creator create a vast assortment of plants, ethnicities, and animals, if only one beast or seed is to dominate all of existence?”
Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

P.J. Fiala, Second Chances

“This is God's universe and he is the master gardener of all. If we were to eliminate all colors in his garden,then what would be a rainbow with only one color? Or a garden with only one kind of flower? Why would the Creator create a vast assortment of plants, ethnicities, and animals, if only one beast or seed is to dominate all of existence?”

Gary L. Francione
“We should not be surprised that more and more people feel comfortable about consuming animal products. After all, they are being assured by the “experts” that suffering is being decreased and they can buy “happy” meat, “free-range” eggs, etc.. These products even come with labels approved of by animal organizations. The animal welfare movement is actually encouraging the “compassionate” consumption of animal products.

Animal welfare reforms do very little to increase the protection given to animal interests because of the economics involved: animals are property. They are things that have no intrinsic or moral value. This means that welfare standards, whether for animals used as foods, in experiments, or for any other purpose, will be low and linked to the level of welfare needed to exploit the animal in an economically efficient way for the particular purpose. Put simply, we generally protect animal interests only to the extent we get an economic benefit from doing so. The concept of “unnecessary” suffering is understood as that level of suffering that will frustrate the particular use. And that can be a great deal of suffering.

Ron Baratono
“When we occupy our mind with an uncomfortable past situation, we’ve just place our future thoughts on hold, for the precious moments we should be thinking about. The wonders that wait ahead in our lives can be beautiful and amazing. Some of the most peaceful and satisfying thoughts we have, will be when we’re awake and dreaming.”
Ron Baratono

Corinne Beenfield
“Though the cottage was quiet, Helen sensed the change before she was even fully awake. It was like standing in a clearing and knowing that a deer was there just behind you, though you couldn’t see it.

She wasn’t alone anymore.

There was something alive—something both wild and peaceful—close by, and her soul knew it before even her mind remembered.

Then Helen felt the girl stirring next to her and the young woman opened her eyes as dawn’s light whispered through the curtains. She’d only fallen asleep an hour or two before.”
Corinne Beenfield, The Ocean's Daughter

Richelle E. Goodrich
“Silence is my defense.
The protector whom I trust.
A sturdy shield,
A loyal safe-keeper,
A sentinel, impassable.

Silence is my refuge.
The shelter in which I hide.
A peaceful home,
A safe sanctuary,
A fortress, impenetrable.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold: Quotes, Poetry, & Motivations for Every Day of the Year

Rita Teixeira
“The moon is shining brighter tonight, touching the entire village with its soft silver light; the houses are half awake and the sky is half asleep, with its sparkling yellowish stars scattered and spread across it, like a large bright night cloak. Little and fragile plants’ silhouettes are beautifully staining the skyline and dancing to the silent sound of the winter breeze.”
Rita Teixeira, The Beauty of Every Day
