A Quote by Dr Edward Mayhew on animals, difficulty, horses, humanity, injustice, morality, and teaching

What is the use of this fuss about morality when the issue only involves a horse? The first and most difficult teaching of civilisation concerns man's behaviour to his inferiors. Make humanity gentle or reasonable toward animals, and strife or injustice between human beings would speedily terminate.

Dr Edward Mayhew (1813 - 1868)
