"All thoughtful persons recognize that cruelty is an evil that should be eradicated from our society, not merely for the sake of animals, but for our own good. We know that cruelty, whether to animals or men, causes in the perpetrator a moral and cultural erosion that is harmful to the whole society."—Fred Myers
