"Every civilising step in history has been ridiculed as "sentimental", "impractical", "womanish", etc., by those whose fun profit or convenience was at stake. We are all fortunate that contempt has never been able to squelch the more admirable human qualities...sensitivity to injustice, sympathy with suffering, protectiveness toward the helpless, recognition of wider and wider kinships. These feelings have been behind every compassionate crusade the world has ever seen. Mankind continues to become gradually less cruel because a few people in every generation keep saying: 'This just isn't right. It hurts me to see it'."
