I am concerned/enraged about the destruction we are causing to this beautiful planet we call home.  I am ashamed of the way my own species treats other life forms.

Few people have the imagination for reality. ~ Goethe

If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change. ~ Siddhartha Buddha   (so amazingly true)

If we don't halt population growth with justice and compassion, it will be done for us by nature, brutally and without pity - and will leave a ravaged world. ~ Nobel Laureate Dr. Henry W. Kendall  (remembering - "we" are part of nature)

"Though we have seen the light - we seem paralized and incapable of acting favorably upon our vision" ~ me 

The reality of life is that your perceptions -- right or wrong -- influence everything else you do. ~ Roger Birkman

Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one ~ Einstein

The only significant measure of your life is the positive effect you have on others ~ Dean Koontz

“All the species that we save from extinction will eventually be gobbled up if the human population keeps growing” ~ Kierán Suckling

“The end of the human race will be that it will eventually die of civilization.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Political Leaning Indifferent
Wild Fact About Me Well - it isn't so much what you would call a "wild" fact - but I have just never really "grown up". And as I stand back and observe the behavior of many of the adults in this world - I hope I never do - - -
My Philosophy to be aware of - and live in - reality
You've gotta know when to hold 'em - know when to fold 'em - - -
What Gives Me Hope children - otherwise I'm still thinking - - -
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by doing away with tax deductions for having children - allow 1 deduction for every person with no children or person/couple with adopted child. We have to begin somewhere - and If you can't afford such a precious gift - you shouldn't be having them - - -
What/who changed my life and why Life is a comprehensive learning experience - even if sometimes we are not paying attention. Hindsight reveals that my "kitties" played a more imortant role than I would have thought - in my search for the meaning and purpose of life - - -
Quotation "The tragedy of life is what dies inside a man while he lives." ~ Albert Schweitzer

"Teaching a child not to step on a caterpillar is as valuable to the child as it is to the caterpillar." ~ Bradley Millar

"I do not intend to tip-toe through life only to arrive safely at death." ~ unknown

"It doesn't really matter what you say you believe - it only matters what you do." ~ Robert Fulghum

Auschwitz begins wherever someone looks at a slaughterhouse and thinks: They're only animals. ~ Theodor W. Adorno

Everyone thinks of changing the world, but no one thinks of changing himself. ~ Leo Tolstoy

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. ~ Marcel Proust

There will come a time when the Earth grows sick and when it does a tribe will gather from all the cultures of the World who believe in deeds and not words. They will work to heal it...they will be known as the "Warriors of the Rainbow." ~ Cree woman

If one pulls on a single thread of nature - he'll find it attached to everything else. ~ John Muir

None are more hopelessly enslaved than those who falsely believe they are free ~ Johann Goethe

Nothing shows a man's character more than what he laughs at ~ Johann Goethe

"Think occasionally of the suffering of which you spare yourself the sight." ~Albert Schweitzer
