Plutarch


"I, for my part, wonder what sort of feeling, mind or reason, that man was possessed to pollute his mouth with gore, and to allow his lips to touch the flesh of a murdered being...who spread his table with the mangled forms of dead bodies, and claimed as daily food and dainty dishes what but now were beings endowed with movement, with perception, and with voice."

Plutarch (46-120 AD), Greek philosopher and biographer
