No one in the world needs a mink coat but a mink.  ~Murray Banks

Hunting is not a sport.  In a sport, both sides should know they're in the game.  ~Paul Rodriguez

When a man destroys one of the works of man we call him a vandal.  When he destroys one of the works of god we call him a sportsman.  ~Joseph Wood Krutch

Wild animals never kill for sport.  Man is the only one to whom the torture and death of his fellow-creatures is amusing in itself.  ~James Anthony Froude,

Animals can communicate quite well.  And they do.  And generally speaking, they are ignored.  ~Alice Walker

When a man wants to murder a tiger he calls it sport; when the tiger wants to murder him he calls it ferocity.  ~George Bernard Shaw

Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution.  Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.  ~Thomas A. Edison

Give to every human being every right that you claim for yourself.  ~Robert Ingersoll

No man is above the law and no man below it.
  ~Theodore Roosevelt

There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed.  ~Mohandas K. Gandhi

It wasn't the Exxon Valdez captain's driving that caused the Alaskan oil spill.  It was yours.  ~Greenpeace advertisement

Because we don't think about future generations, they will never forget us.  ~Henrik Tikkanen


Newspapers:  dead trees with information smeared on them.  ~Horizon, "Electronic Frontier"

The use of solar energy has not been opened up because the oil industry does not own the sun.  ~Ralph Nader

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.  ~Marya Mannes

For 200 years we've been conquering Nature.  Now we're beating it to death.  ~Tom McMillan

It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.  ~Ansel Adams

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


When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.  ~John Muir

The old Lakota was wise.  He knew that man's heart away from nature becomes hard; he knew that lack of respect for growing, living things soon led to lack of respect for humans too.  ~Chief Luther Standing Bear

Every day is Earth Day.  ~Author Unknown
