“There is implanted by Nature in the heart of man, a noble and excellent affection of mercy, extending even to the brute animals, which, by the Divine appointment, are subjected to his dominion. This, moreover, we may be assured of, that the more noble the mind the more enlarged is this affection. Narrow and degenerate minds think that such things do not pertain to them, but the nobler part of mankind is affected by sympathy."

LORD BACON.
