Weeds by Mary T. Hoffman

Sir William Jones
English Philologist, Jurist and Poet

"Cruelty to dumb [unspeaking] animals is one of the distinguishing vices of the low and base minded. Wherever it is found, it is a certain mark of ignorance and meanness; a mark which all the external advantages of wealth, splendour and nobility cannot obliterate. It is consistent neither with learning nor true civility."
