Definition of animality:
vulgarity (part of speech: noun)
Nothing is more common than for people to confound the inward peace and satisfaction which follows the subduing of the obvious faults of our animality with what I may call absolute inward peace and satisfaction,- the peace and satisfaction which are reached as we draw near to complete spiritual perfection, and not merely to moral perfection, or rather to relative moral perfection.- "Selections from the Prose Works of Matthew Arnold", Matthew Arnold.
I am aware that it is said that the culture of the age is itself materialistic, and that its refinements are sensual; that there is little to choose between the coarse excesses of poverty and the polished and more decorous animality of the more fortunate.- "The Complete Essays of C. D. Warner", Charles Dudley Warner.
