Eco-Quotes That Make Me Think

The Good Human, one of the most interesting eco-bloggers and Tweeters, has posted 101 Quotes About The Environment. A little inspiration and perspective never hurt anyone, so here are a few of my favorites:

1. “Because we don’t think about future generations, they will never forget us.” (Finnish author Henrik Tikkanen)

2. “I conceive that the land belongs to a vast family of which many are dead, few are living, and countless numbers are still unborn.” (author unknown)

3. “The activist is not the man who says the river is dirty. The activist is the man who cleans up the river.” (businessman-turned-philosopher? Ross Perot)

4. “For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for Nature cannot be fooled.” (20th century scientist Richard Feynman)

That last one – harsh words for public relations, but, OK, we get the point!
