Environment

Irene Stillings, Executive Director, California Center for Sustainable Energy

Sustainability is living as if the future matters.

Elizabeth Goudge

Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life….

Ettiene De Grellet

I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.

Ayn Rand

The difference between animals and humans is that animals change themselves for the environment, but humans change the environment for themselves.

Catherine Pulsifer

Living simply has resulted in us becoming more aware of the environment and the impact we have on it.

Margaret Mead

We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment.

Janet Holmes

We have to shift our emphasis from economic efficiency and materialism towards a sustainable quality of life and to healing of our society, of our people and our ecological systems.

Germaine Greer

Perhaps catastrophe is the natural human environment, and even though we spend a good deal of energy trying to get away from it, we are programmed for survival amid catastrophe.

Rachel Carson

For the first time in the history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals, from the moment of conception until death.

Marya Mannes

The earth we abuse and the living things we kill will, in the end, take their revenge; for in exploiting their presence we are diminishing our future.
