Quotation: Bishop Joseph Butler (1692-1752)

"Man in his pride is too apt to believe that all the world is made for him; yet the earth teems with life in other forms, even in regions never trodden by man, and in corners to which he cannot penetrate, and where it has no relation whatever to him"

Cited in a letter to The Dietetic Reformer and Vegetarian Messenger (October 1863)
