A Quote by Sir William Jones on animals, certainty, cruelty, ignorance, learning, nobility, vices, and wealth

Cruelty to dumb animals is one of the distinguishing vices of low and base minds. Wherever it is found, it is a certain mark of ignorance and meanness; a mark which all the external advantages of wealth, splendour, and nobility, cannot obliterate. It is consistent neither with learning nor true civility.

William Jones (1746 - 1794)
