Immanuel Kant

“Parents usually educate their children merely in such a manner that however bad the world may be, they may adapt themselves to its present conditions. But they ought to give them an education so much better than this, that a better condition of things may thereby be brought about in the future.”

“…We can judge the heart of a man by his treatment of animals.”
