"Being vegan is the greatest way to fight social injustice in the world."

"The suffering of animals is systematic, and that system depends on one thing, profit. If it were not profitable to exploit animals companies would not do it. The reason it is profitable is that people pay these companies to give them these animal products at the lowest cost possible. The only way to do that is to exploit animals and humans in order to meet the demand. It is the direct responsibility of the consumer to know that they are directly supporting this suffering."

"A part of respecting life is that we must not justify suffering."

"I decided that the best way on earth to advocate for animals was to work undercover. I felt that I could not wait for someone else to do it. It was my responsibility to give them a voice. I was paying a debt. I look back at all those years now amazed that somehow I found the strength to continue to work and film. I put my emotional stability to the test, my body in peril of serious injury and exposure, and even my very life at risk, so that people could see the true cost of their food choices."
