Leonardo da Vinci Quote

"Truly man is the king of beasts, for his brutality exceeds theirs. We live by the death of others: we are burial places! I have from an early age abjured the use of meat, and the time will come when men such as I will look on the murder of animals as they now look on the murder of men."

Leonardo da Vinci
1452 - 1519
Renaissance painter, architect, engineer, mathematician and philosopher

sorry to spoil the party,
actually that quote was from a later novel about da Vinci. Still an interesting quote.
