“I’m never going to have a fur coat, not ever, because it’s wrong to kill animals just for the fur. I’m not a vegetarian, I think it’s alright to kill animals to eat them, because that’s different. They’d do that to us. There’s no need for us to take their fur just to show off.” — Morwenna Markova, in Among Others
