Fruitarian Philosophy

Fruitarian philosophy - system of fruitarian philosophical thought, the theoretical basis of fruitarianism, rational arguments for and against it, general presentation and definitions.

  • Dalai Lama

    Life is as dear to a mute creature as it is to a man. Just as one wants happiness and fears pain, just as one wants to live and not to die, so do other creatures.

  • Carl Sagan

    A sharp distinction between humans and “animals” is essential if we are to bend them to our will, make them work for us, wear them, eat them–without any disquieting tinges of guilt or regret. It is unseemly of us, who often behave so unfeeling toward other animals, to contend that only humans can suffer. The behavior of other animals renders such pretensions specious. They are just too much like us.

  • Fyodor Dostoyevsky

    Man, do not pride yourself on superiority to animals.

  • Leo Tolstoy

    A man can live and be healthy without killing animals for food; therefore, if he eats meat, he participates in taking animal life merely for the sake of his appetite. And to act so is immoral. 

  • Albert Schweitzer

    A man is ethical only when life, as such, is sacred to him, that of plants and animals as that of his fellow men, and when he devotes himself helpfully to all life that is in need of help. 

  • Albert Schweitzer

    The thinking man must oppose all cruel customs no matter how deeply rooted in tradition and surrounded by a halo. When we have a choice, we must avoid bringing torment and injury into the life of another, even the lowliest creature; to do so is to renounce our manhood and shoulder a guilt which nothing justifies. 

  • John Ruskin

    I will not kill or hurt any living creature needlessly, nor destroy any beautiful thing, but will strive to save and comfort all gentle life, and guard and perfect all natural beauty upon the earth. 

  • Albert Einstein

    If people are good only because they fear punishment, then we are a sorry lot indeed. 

  • Dhammika Sutta

    He should not kill a living being, nor cause it to be killed, nor should he incite another to kill. Do not injure any being, either strong or weak, in the world.

  • Marcel Proust

    The real voyage of discovery lies not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. 

Aristotle

Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.

Exercise

Physical exercise is any bodily activity that enhances or maintains physical fitness and overall health and wellness. Frequent and regular physical exercise boosts the immune system and helps prevent "diseases of affluence" such as cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. It may also help prevent stress and depression, increase quality of sleep and act as a non-pharmaceutical sleep aid, help improve mental health, maintain steady digestion, regulate fertility health.
