PREVIOUS CLASS RECIPES: ------------------------------------------------------ "Don't do nothing because you can't do everything. Do Something. Anything." ~Sasha "As long as people will shed the blood of innocent creatures there can be no peace, no liberty, no harmony between people. Slaughter and justice cannot dwell together." ~Isaac Bashevis Singer "The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans anymore than black people were made for whites or women for men." ~Alice Walker "Nonviolence 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
