• It has long seemed ridiculous to me to suppose that the nature of things has been so poor and stingy that it provided souls only to such a trifling mass of bodies on our globe, like human bodies, when it could have given them to all, without interfering with its other ends.

    Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz (2015). “Leibniz: Philosophical Essays”, p.168, Hackett Publishing
