21st Century: Query 8 (Michel de Montaigne)
Michel de Montaigne (1533-1592) once said,
There is a certain respect, and a general duty of humanity, that attaches us not only to animals, who have life and feeling, but even to trees and plants. We owe justice to men, and mercy and kindness to other creatures that may be capable of receiving it. There is some relationship between them and us, and some mutual obligation.How might this statement be true or false?
