Percy Bysshe Shelley
"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."
"It were much better that a sentient being should never have
existed, than that it should have existed only to endure unmitigated
"I wish no living thing to suffer pain."
"The monstrous sophism that beasts are pure unfeeling machines, and
do not reason, scarcely requires a confutation."
