A work of art must narrate something that does not appear within its outline. The objects and figures represented in it must likewise poetically tell you of something that is far away from them and also of what their shapes materially hide from us.

But suppose the case were otherwise, what would it avail? The question is not, Can they reason ?, nor Can they talk ? but, Can they suffer?jeremy bentham
