Unconscious Cruelty

We must fight against the spirit of unconscious cruelty with which we treat the animals. Animals suffer as much as we do. True humanity does not allow us to impose such sufferings on them. It is our duty to make the whole world recognise it. Until we extend our circle of compassion to all living things, humanity will not find peace.

~ Albert Schweitzer (1875-01-14 1965-09-04 age:90) The Philosophy of Civilization
