To feed one meat eater for a year requires three-and-a-quarter acres of land. To feed one vegetarian for a year requires one half acre of land. In other words, a given amount of land can feed more than six times as many people eating a vegetarian diet than those eating a meat-based diet.

John Robbins (via iamjacksvegansandwich)

People die all the time. Life is a lot more fragile than we think. So you should treat others in a way that leaves no regrets. Fairly, and if possible, sincerely. It’s too easy not to make the effort, then weep and wring your hands after the person dies.

Haruki Murakami, Dance Dance Dance (via observando)

When your happiness is dependant upon what is happening outside of you, constantly you live as a slave to the external situation.

Jaggi Vasudev (via hippie-chemist)
