Plutarch (40 to 120 A.D.)
Geniuses like Pythagoras, Leonardo da Vinci, and Mahatma Gandhi abstained from eating animals. Plutarch wrote, ‚ÄúWhen we clog and cloy our body with flesh, we also render our mind and intellect coarse. When the body‚Äôs clogged with unnatural food, the mind becomes confused and dull and loses its cheerfulness. Such minds engage in trivial pursuits, because they lack the clearness and vigor for higher thinking.‚Äù
Like all animals, we are essentially spiritual beings, manifestations of a universal, loving intelligence that has given us bodies designed to thrive on the abundant foods that we can peacefully nourish and gather in orchards, fields, and gardens.
May all beings be free and at peace, Will
