Quotes 2017 #22
"The rule is not not to eat animal meat. The rule is not to kill. So
when we encounter a dead doe on the road, we express our gratitude to
Earth and eat it. We must eat it so that life is not wasted. When we
stumble upon a dead pigeon in the dark, we thank Heaven and pluck it.
Thus I've eaten rabbits, weasels, raccoons."
Kyoko Yoshida, "Squirrel Heaven"
I just love, love, love this piece. She's definitely one of the most exciting English-language writers today!
