WISDOM QUOTES ABOUT MOTHER NATURE:

 

  • There is hope if people will begin to awaken that spiritual part of themselves, that heartfelt knowledge
    that we are caretakers of this planet.
    ~ Brooke Medicine Eagle ~

 

  • Every creature is better alive than dead,
    men and moose and pine trees,
    and he who understands it aright
    will rather preserve its life than destroy it.
    ~ Henry David Thoreau.

 

  • We must not be forced to explore the universe in search of a new  home because we have made the Earth inhospitable, even uninhabitable.
    For if we do not solve the environmental and related social problems that beset us on Earth – pollution, toxic contamination,
    resource depletion, prejudice, poverty, hunger
    – those problems will surely accompany us to other worlds.
    ~ Donald G. Kaufman and Cecilia M. Franz
    from ‘Biosphere 2000: Protecting Our Global Environment’ 1996 ~

 

  • A human being is part of the whole,
    called by us “Universe,”
    a part limited in time and space.
    He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings
    as something separated from the rest
    – a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
    This delusion is a kind of prison for us,
    restricting us to our personal desires and
    to affection for a few persons nearest to us.
    Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison
    by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creaturesand the whole of nature in its beauty.
    ~ Albert Einstein, 1950 ~

 

  • To waste, to destroy our natural resources,
    to skin and exhaust the land instead of using it so as to increase its usefulness, will result in undermining in the days of our children the very prosperity which we ought by right to hand down to them amplified and developed.
    ~Theodore Roosevelt,

 

  • We never know the worth of water till the well is dry.
    ~ Thomas Fuller

 

  • He who plants a tree
    Plants a hope.
    ~Lucy Larcom, from ‘Plant a Tree’ ~
