The tide of the earths population is rising, the reservoir of the earths living resources is falling - Henry Fairfield Osborn, Jr 1948.

"As corporations gain in autonomous institutional power and become more detached from people and place, the human interest and the corporate interest increasingly diverge. It is almost as though we were being invaded by alien beings intent on colonizing our planet, reducing us to serfs, and then excluding as many of us as possible." - David Korten

We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong we may begin to use it with love and respect - Aldo Leopold, 1948

Quotation “Reason is nothing less than the guardian of love.” Sam Harris
Money never made a man happy yet, nor will it. There is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more a man has, the more he wants. Instead of filling a vacuum, it makes one. - Benjamin Franklin

"It is the ecologist's job, as a general rule, to oppose growth and progress.
The pressures on the ecologist to provide 'tinkering' solutions will continue to be quite strong. Pleas for a change of values, for a change to a non-growth, equilibrium economy seem naive. The government will receive such advice coolly.
We do not minimise the difficulty in changing the main driving force in life. The point of view of the ecologist should be subversive; it has to be subversive or the ecologist will become merely subservient."
Murdock, W. and Connell, J. H. 1971. All About Ecology. The Center Magazine. Center for the Study of Democratic Institutions, Santa Barbara.
