But a man is not a thing, that is to say, something which can be used merely as a means, but must in all his actions be always considered as an end in himself. I cannot, therefore, dispose in any way of a man in my own person so as to mutilate him, to damage or kill him. (Kant)

I cannot, therefore, dispose in any way of a man in my own person so as to mutilate him, to damage or kill him." (Immanuel Kant)
