Frances Moore Lappé

  • The act of putting into your mouth what the earth has grown is perhaps your most direct interaction with the earth.

  • ... our heavily meat-centered culture is at the very heart of our waste of the earth's productivity ...

  • ... in a world where only a minor portion of the land is really well suited to agriculture, man is using much of the best land with dubious efficiency.

  • ... much agricultural land which might be growing food is being used instead to 'grow' money (in the form of coffee, tea, etc.).

  • This is the first generation to know that the choices we're making have ultimate consequences. It's a time when you either choose life or you choose death ... Going along with the current order means that you're choosing death.
