“Be a vegetarian. That was the best advice I ever took. It means I’m not involved in killing, that’s the main thing. It was after a conversation with someone that went on all night, but I didn’t take much persuading, and the next day I was a vegetarian.

But you can’t take a life just because you like its taste.”

– UK Actor Martin Shaw in a recent interview with The Mirror.
