“‘But don’t you know it is extremely wicked to do such a thing? Remember, the birds can feel as well as you ; and think, how would you like it yourself?’ […] ‘But you will have to feel it some time, Tom : you have heard where wicked people go to when they die : and if you don’t leave off torturing innocent birds , remember, you will have to go there, and suffer just what you have made them suffer.'”

(Anne Bronte: Agnes Grey, Chapter II “First Lessons in the Art of Instruction”)
