Bill Schutt
“Reality does not yield to wishful thinking and truth cannot be established by a political party (or any other organization for that matter).”
Bill Schutt, Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History

Margaret Atwood
“What you don’t know won’t hurt you. A dubious maxim: sometimes what you don’t know can hurt you very much.”
Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin

Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
“If we didn’t feel there was something problematic with eating meat, dairy, and eggs in the first place, we wouldn’t have worked so hard to justify our behavior, we wouldn’t have tried so hard to avoid looking at the processes…Don’t tell me. I don’t want to know is not what we say when confronted with how carrots are harvested from the ground or how plums are plucked from trees. Don’t tell my children what they’re really eating. It would be too upsetting for them is not what we say when asked about how apples become applesauce. In all aspects of our life, guilt serves as a red flag that something isn’t right, tapping us on the shoulder to let us know we may have strayed from our principles or goals.”
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, The Joyful Vegan: How to Stay Vegan in a World That Wants You to Eat Meat, Dairy, and Eggs

Ralph Waldo Emerson
“I become the transparent eyeball...”
Ralph Waldo Emerson

Colleen Patrick-Goudreau
“[Our world] seeks to encourage empathy, kindness, and compassion in children but seems suspicious of these same values in adults.”
Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, The 30-Day Vegan Challenge: The Ultimate Guide to Eating Healthfully and Living Compassionately
