Quotation: H.W. Hales (1956)

"Vegetarianism is derived not so much from anything that "is read" as from that which "is felt." What are we to obey, the senses or the spirit? With which of the five senses do we define spirituality? And yet it is the only sure guide. Vegetarianism is bound to Christianity no matter what is read. For every step towards love and goodness, spiritually felt, is a tendency towards God."
