If you've thought about not eating animals for ethical reasons, health reasons, environmental reasons or any other reason, here are a few good links that will help get you started:

Philip Wollen's "Animals Should Be Off the Menu," delivered at the Wheeler Centre:

Some good quotes:

"For as long as men massacre animals, they will kill each other. Indeed, he who sows the seed of murder and pain cannot reap joy and love."
    --Pythagoras

"Nothing will benefit human health and increase chances of survival for life on earth as much as the evolution to a vegetarian diet."
    --Albert Einstein

"My body will not be a tomb for other creatures."
    --Leonardo Da Vinci

“While we ourselves are the living graves of murdered beasts, how can we expect any ideal conditions on this earth?”
    --George Bernard Shaw

"The question is not, 'Can they reason?' nor, 'Can they talk?' but rather, 'Can they suffer?'"
    --Jeremy Bentham

"Until one has loved an animal, a part of one's soul remains unawakened."
    --Anatole France

"There is no fundamental difference between man and animals in their ability to feel pleasure and pain, happiness, and misery."
    --Charles Darwin

“By eating meat we share the responsibility of climate change, the destruction of our forests, and the poisoning of our air and water. The simple act of becoming a vegetarian will make a difference in the health of our planet.”
    --Thich Nhat Hanh

“Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.”
    --Thomas A. Edison

“Now I can look at you in peace; I don't eat you any more.”
    --Franz Kafka

“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.”
    --Leo Tolstoy
