German composer, poet and essayist
(1813 - 1883)

“Plant life instead of animal food is the keystone of regeneration. Jesus used bread instead of flesh and wine in place of blood at the Lord's Supper.”

“If experiments on animals were abandoned on grounds of compassion, mankind would have made a fundamental advance.”

“Human dignity begins to assert itself only at the point where man is distinguishable from the beast by pity for it.”
~ The Regeneration of Mankind
