William Ralph Inge

It is useless for the sheep to pass resolutions in favor of vegetarianism while the wolf remains of a different opinion.
Inge (1860-1954) was an Anglican priest and a prolific author.  He was educated at Eton and King's College, Cambridge, and taught at both Oxford and Cambridge before he was chosen to be the Dean of St. Paul's Cathedral in London.  He wrote mostly on theology and philosophy, and was also an outspoken advocate of animal rights.

Today is World Vegetarian Day.
