thursday-august-6th-2015-2 Compassion

“When man learns to respect even the smallest being of Creation,
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.”

~ Albert Schweitzer
