“I have no doubt that it is part of the destiny of the human race, in its gradual improvement, to leave off eating animals, as surely as the savage tribes have left off eating each other when they came in contact with each other.”
Henry David Thoreau (1817-1862)
“Three meals a day are a highly advanced institution. savages gorge themselves or fast.”
E.C. Hayes, 'Introduction to the Study of Sociology' (1913)
“Who can begin conventional amiability the first thing in the morning? It is the hour of savage instincts and natural tendencies; it is the triumph of the Disagreeable and the Cross. I am convinced that the Muses and the Graces never thought of having breakfast anywhere but in bed.”
Elizabeth Russell (Mary Annette Russell, Countess von Arnim) (1866-1941) English novelist; ‘Elizabeth and Her German Garden’ (1898)
