The philosophy of Albert Schweitzer, influenced by Indian religions.

James Brabazon described it as-

"Reverence for Life says that the only thing we are really sure of is that we live and want to go on living. This is something that we share with everything else that lives, from elephants to blades of grass—and, of course, every human being. So we are brothers and sisters to all living things, and owe to all of them the same care and respect, that we wish for ourselves."

A universal ethical theory, that strives to value and have "reverence" for all living things...

Can a theory as such be realistically be part of one's ethical approach in modern day society? What do you think? Is it asking too much? Should we have a reverence towards all​ living things?

Sentience seems a much better decider to me. A blade of grass can't feel, can't think, it doesn't care if it's trampled or eaten or left to grow. So why should we care, unless it benefits us, or something sentient?
