Vegetarians throughout history

Some of history's most noted writers, artists and thinkers were vegetarians and vegans.
Leonardo Da Vinci was among them and once said: "I have from an early age adjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look upon the murder of animals as they now look upon the murder of men"

Here is just a short list of some that I found interesting:

Siddhartha Gautama(better known as the BUDDHA)
Lord Byron
Mary Shelley (Author of Frankenstein)
Albert Einstein
Susan B. Anthony
Henry David Thoreau
Vincent van Gogh
Thomas Edison
Sir Isaac Newton
Charlotte Bronte
H.G. Wells
