We have become great because of the lavish use of our resources … But the time has come to inquire seriously what will happen when our forests are gone, when the coal, the iron, the oil and the gas are exhausted.
We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.
We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.
Native American Proverb
We never know the worth of water till the well is dry.
Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from.
