1886 - 1981

A Quote by C.W. Hulme on animals, conventionality, day, fear, hunger, literature, suffering, words, and writing

To this day the more conventional biologists suffer from an obsessional fear of anthropomorphism, and even put such words as "hunger" and "fear" between quotes (a literary solecism in any case) when writing about animals. The quotes are a way of saying "I cannot get on without Anthropomorphism, but I am ashamed to be seen with her in public".
