धन्यं  यशस्यमायुष्यं स्वर्ग्यं स्वस्त्ययनं महत्।
मांसस्याभक्षणं प्राहुर्नियताः परमर्षयः ॥
The great abstemious sages say that the voiding of the eating of flesh is blessed, praiseworthy, conducive to long life, helpful to attain heaven and is the great way to well-being.

“Those high-souled persons who desire beauty, faultlessness of limbs, long life, understanding, mental and physical strength, and memory, should abstain from acts of injury.”

“That learned person who giveth to all living creatures the Dakshina of complete assurance comes to be regarded, without doubt, as the giver of life-breaths in this world.”

“Abstention from cruelty is the highest Religion. Abstention from cruelty is the greatest self-restraint.
Abstention from cruelty is the highest gift. Abstention from cruelty is the highest penance.
Abstention from cruelty is the highest sacrifice. Abstention from cruelty is the highest power.
Abstention from cruelty is the greatest friend. Abstention from cruelty is the greatest happiness”
