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."

"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
