A Quote by Thomas Moore on affection, citizenship, and nature

From thence the beasts be brought in, killed and clean washed by the hands of their bondsmen. For they permit not their free citizens to accustom themselves to the killing of beasts, through the use whereof they think clemency, the gentlest affection of our nature, by little and little to decay and perish.

A Quote by Thomas Moore on individuality, relationships, sex, and time
