Franz Kafka is thought to have uttered these words to fish he was admiring in an aquarium.
The novelist is believed to have been attracted to a meat-free diet for health reasons – and, like many of the great brains who ditched meat – out of respect for animals.
We’re not sure the anecdote is true.
But we are sure of one thing: people who can look animals in the eyes without feeling guilty are getting more and more.
