There is a love of wild nature in everybody, an ancient mother-love showing itself whether recognized or no, and however covered by cares and duties

John Muir

Howard Zahnhiser

Only after the last tree has been cut down Only after the last river has been poisoned Only after the last fish has been caught Only then you will find out that money cannot be eaten

Cree Prophecy

All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost.

J.R.R. Tolkien

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, things aren’t going to get better, they’re not!

Dr. Seuss

Having to squeeze the last drop of utility out of the land has the same desperate finality as having to chop up the furniture to keep warm.
