Page 46 - And he shall judge among many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks: nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. But they shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree; and none shall make them afraid: for the mouth of the Lord of hosts hath spoken it.

Page 13 - They seldom eat vegetable food until some other animal has eaten it first, and made it into flesh. Their only use seems to be to destroy life— their own flesh is unfit for other animals to eat, having been itself made out of flesh, and is most foul and offensive. Great strength, fleetness of foot, usefulness, cleanliness, and docility, are then always characteristic of vegetable-eating animals ; while all the world dreads flesh-eaters.
