When I see those who are alive,
I do not wish to see them die.
When I hear their sounds,
I cannot bear to eat their flesh.
The appeal of the lower order of creation is all the more forcible
because it is speechless...
I have extended my pacifism to include non-harming of creatures
as well as non-harming of human beings.
Therefore for many years I have not eaten flesh—not meat, fowl, or fish.
