Quote Of Today: Leo Tolstoy, One Of History’s Greatest Authors And Vegetarian

“This is dreadful! Not the suffering and death of the animals, but that people suppress in themselves, unnecessarily, the highest spiritual capacity – that of sympathy and pity towards living creatures like themselves – and by violating their own feelings, become cruel. And how deeply seated in the human heart is the injunction not to take life.”

– Leo Tolstoy, translated from “The First Step,” 1892.
