I thought i would share some good quotes that I came across today…

“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s need, but not every man’s greed.”  – Mahatma Gandhi

“Take nothing but pictures.  Leave nothing but footprints.  Kill nothing but time.” - Motto of the Baltimore Grotto
“Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money.”  – Cree Proverb

“Some day the earth will weep, she will beg for her life, she will cry with tears of blood.
You will make a choice, if you will help her or let her die, and when she dies, you will die too.”  – John Hollow Horn

“But our waste problem is not the fault only of producers. It is the fault of an economy that is wasteful from top to bottom—a symbiosis of an unlimited greed at the top and a lazy, passive, and self-indulgent consumptiveness at the bottom—and all of us are involved in it.”  – Wendell Berry

“Solid wastes are the discarded leftovers of our advanced consumer society. This growing mountain of garbage and trash represents not only an attitude of indifference toward valuable natural resources, but also a serious economic and public health problem.”  – Jimmy Carter

“We are not to throw away those things which can benefit our neighbor. Goods are called good because they can be used for good: they are instruments for good, in the hands of those who use them properly.”  – Clement of Alexandria

“The ever-mounting glut of waste materials is characteristic by-product of modern “consumer society.” It might even be argued that capitalism’s continual need to find and generate markets means that disposability and waste have become the spine of the system. To consume means, literally, “to destroy or expend,” and in the garbage crisis we confront the underlying truth of a society in which enormous productive capacities and market forces have harnessed human needs and desires, without regard to the long or even short-term future of life on the planet.”  – Stuart Ewen

“Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell.”— Edward Abbey

“Live simple, so others can simply live” – Mother Teresa

“We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.”  ~ Native American Proverb

They kill good trees to put out bad newspapers.  ~ James G. Watt, quoted inNewsweek, 8 March 1982

Suburbia is where the developer bulldozes out the trees, then names the streets after them.  ~Bill Vaughn

Oh Beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain,
For strip-mined mountain’s majesty above the asphalt plain.
America, America, man sheds his waste on thee,
And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea.
~George Carlin

We say we love flowers, yet we pluck them.  We say we love trees, yet we cut them down.  And people still wonder why some are afraid when told they are loved.  ~ Author Unknown

Why should man expect his prayer for mercy to be heard by What is above him when he shows no mercy to what is under him?  ~Pierre Troubetzkoy

You can’t mine coal without machine guns. –Richard B. Mellon, Congressional testimony quoted in Time, June 14, 1937

“The essence of all slavery consists in taking the product of another’s labor by force. It is immaterial whether this force be founded upon ownership of the slave or ownership of the money that he must get to live” -Leo Tolstoy

Anarchists are opposed to violence; everyone knows that. The main plank of anarchism is the removal of violence from human relations. It is life based on freedom of the individual, without the intervention of the gendarme. For this reason we are the enemies of capitalism which depends on the protection of the gendarme to oblige workers to allow themselves to be exploited–or even to remain idle and go hungry when it is not in the interest of the bosses to exploit them. We are therefore enemies of the State which is the coercive violent organization of society. –Errico Malatesta

Anarchism aims to strip labor of its deadening, dulling aspect, of its gloom and compulsion. It aims to make work an instrument of joy, of strength, of color, of real harmony, so that the poorest sort of a man should find in work both recreation and hope. –Emma Goldman

Workers and their families may starve to death in the New World Order of economic rationality, but diamond necklaces are cheaper in elegant New York shops, thanks to the miracle of the market. –Noam Chomsky
