"The planet earth has a life span of eight billion years, give or take a few million.
People have been around for approximately forty thousand years,
a virtual blink in the cosmos.
It is sad that we as a species are ravaging the natural world so fast
that we are jeopardizing our survival.
If we wipe ourselves out,it would be the height of folly,
but the earth will survive even us.
It will eventually restore itself.
It might take a few thousand years, and it won't be just
as it was before, but its life force is stronger than death".
Charlotte Davis Kasl
"We are living beyond our means.
As people we have developed a lifestyle
that is draining the earth of its priceless and
irreplaceable resources without regard for the future
of our children and people all around the world".
" When you learn to take responsibility for yourselves,
then you will start taking responsibility for the planet.
The planet is being destroyed by your abandonment of responsibility.
You assume that you own the planet.
And ownership confers upon you the right to do as you like.
You do not own this beautiful planet. You are simply a guest here ".
"The earth has enough for every person's need, but not for every person's greed ".
"The earth has music for those who listen"
