Famous Vegetarians & Vegans!

Plato - Vegan
I am fascinated by all the significant, historical figures (celebs are cool, too) who chose to go either vegetarian or vegan way back in the day.

What did they know - what drove their decision - health or animal welfare?  

Probably safe to say that Thomas Edison would have been an animal rights activist...

"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 Edison

Einstein - may have been in both camps...

"Although I have been prevented by outward circumstances from observing a strictly vegetarian diet, I have long been an adherent to the cause in principle. Besides agreeing with the aims of vegetarianism for aesthetic and moral reasons, it is my view that a vegetarian manner of living by its purely physical effect on the human temperament would most beneficially influence the lot of mankind." - Albert Einstein
