Humankind has not woven the web of life.
We are but one thread within it.
Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves.
All things are bound together.
All things connect.
Chief Seattle, 1854
When all the trees have been cut down,
When all the animals have been hunted,
When all the waters are polluted,
When all the air is unsafe to breathe,
Only then will you discover
You cannot eat money.
Cree Prophecy
Treat the earth well.
It was not given to you by your parents,
it was loaned to you by your children.
We do not inherit the Earth from our Ancestors
We borrow it from our Children.
Ancient Indian Proverb
The price of anything is the amount of life exchanged for it.

And usually anything a tiny little group of very rich people want, they get. To hell with anyone or anything else. I would like to be able to stand by their deathbed when they die to see them realize none of their earthly riches go with them. And then to be with them while they're trying to explain to God just why they felt the need to corrupt and spoil His beautiful planet, killing untold numbers of the beautiful creatures He had placed upon this earth.

I never really understood people like Gina Rinehart, I mean USD 29 billion!!! Why more??? How many lives have you destroyed while gathering that? How much is enough for you? Can that money buy you a good functioning brain that will explain to you the amount of damage you have done to earth and habitats? I wish it could!!
