Everybody, soon or later, sits down to a banquet of consequences.
Nothing more strongly arouses our disgust than cannibalism, yet we make the same impression on Buddhists and vegetarians, for we feed on babies, though not our own.
We consume the carcasses of creatures of like appetites, passions and organs with our own, and fill the slaughterhouses daily with screams of fear and pain.
Robert Louis Stevenson (1850 – 1894)
Scottish novelist and poet. The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Treasure Island are among his writings.
