Quote, date unkown:
"Vegetarianism has been a concern of mine for decades, and I think it is the natural way of living for people. It is incomprehensible to me that not every animal friend is at the same time a vegetarian."
«Der Vegetarismus ist mir seit Jahrzehnten ein inneres Anliegen, und ich halte ihn für die naturgemäße Lebensweise des Menschen. [...] Es ist mir unbegreiflich, daß nicht jeder Tierfreund zugleich Vegetarier ist.»
