Percy Shelly, vegetarianGreat Minds Think Alike - Happy Birthday Percy Shelley 

Percy Shelley (August 4, 1792 - July 8, 1822) was a Romantic poet, critically regarded as among the finest lyric poets in the English language. Shelley was part of a famous circle including John Keats and Lord Byron, and novelist Mary Shelley was his second wife.

In Prometheus Unbound, Shelley wrote: "I wish no living thing to suffer pain." In Queen Mab he said: "It is only by softening and disguising dead flesh by culinary preparation that it is rendered susceptible of mastication or digestion, and that the sight of its bloody juices and raw horror does not excite intolerable loathing and disgust." Shelley wrote several essays about vegetarianism including "A Vindication of Natural Diet" and "On the Vegetable System of Diet." He was a great friend to animals (though unfortunately not equally kind to some of the people in his life) and a great advocate, especially for animals used in the production of food.
