whether animal or vegetable,
nobody has to teach him to love his fellow man.
Compassion for animals is intimately connected with goodness of character,
and it may be confidently asserted that
he who is cruel to animals cannot be a good man.”

by a spark from another person.
Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude
of those who have lighted the flame within us.”

in which all ethics must take root,
can only attain its full breadth and depth
if it embraces all living creatures
and does not limit itself to mankind.”

Even if it’s a little thing, do something for others
something for which you get no pay
but the privilege of doing it.”
