Excerpt 23 - Dominion

Title: Dominion
Author: Matthew Scully
Page: 398
Notes: read this book. that is all.

Animal welfare is not just a moral problem to be solved in statutes, but a moral opportunity to fill our own lives with acts of compassion. Kindness to animals is not our most important duty as human beings, nor is it our least important. How we treat our fellow creatures is only one more way in which each one of us, every day, writes our own epitaph - bearing into the world a message of light and life or just more darkness and death, adding to the world's joy or to its despair.
