I chose the name “Vegan Rabbit” for a few reasons:
- Rabbits are my favorite animals.
- Rabbits are herbivorous.
- Most importantly, my bunny Shfanfi (R.I.P.) is the reason I am vegan. He helped me see the moral discrepancy between eating meat and loving him.
For more information about my reasons for choosing to live a vegan lifestyle, please read my post What is Love?: How Going Vegan Showed Me What Love Really Is.
I love quotes. Here are are my favorites:
“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up. Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love. So if you love a flower, let it be. Love is not about possession. Love is about appreciation.” ~ Osho
“A human being is a part of the whole called by us “Universe,” a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest- a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.” ~ Albert Einstein
“We are all alone, born alone, die alone, and — in spite of True Romance magazines — we shall all someday look back on our lives and see that, in spite of our company, we were alone the whole way. I do not say lonely — at least, not all the time — but essentially, and finally, alone. This is what makes your self-respect so important, and I don’t see how you can respect yourself if you must look in the hearts and minds of others for your happiness.” ~ Hunter S. Thompson
“I feel a certain calm. There is safety in the midst of danger. What would life be if we had no courage to attempt anything?” ~ Vincent van Gogh
