Weekly Green Tips #8 - Quotes

Week 8 - Green Quotes

A picture can tell a thousand words but sometimes a simple quote can say much more than just the few words it contains - here are 7 of my all time favourites:


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


"We are living on this planet as if we had another one to go to." ~ Terri Swearingen


"A nation that destroys its soils destroys itself. Forests are the lungs of our land, purifying the air and giving fresh strength to our people." ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt


"It is our collective and individual responsibility to preserve and tend to the environment in which we all live.” ~ Dalai Lama XIV


"Take nothing but pictures, leave nothing but footprints, kill nothing but time." ~ Unknown


"Our challenge isn’t so much to teach children about the natural world but to find ways to nurture and sustain the instinctive connections they already carry.” ~ Terry Krautwurst


“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed.”Mahatma Gandhi

I actually found it very difficult to just add 7 quotes here and may well return to this idea at a later date.  In the meantime do you have any favourite environmental, green or nature quotes?
