"People must have renounced, it seems to me, all natural intelligence
to dare to advance that animals are but animated machines..... It
appears to me, besides, that [such people] can never have observed with
attention the character of animals, not to have distinguished among them
the different voices of need, of suffering, of joy, of pain, of love, of
anger, and of all their affections. It would be very strange that they
should express so well what they could not feel."
"Many are destined to reason wrongly, others, not to reason at all;
and others, to persecute those who do reason."
