Some Quotes for Earth Day

 I found these quotes and wanted to share them.  They offer something to ponder, and hopefully, act upon:

Like the mind-set that places men above women, whites above Blacks, and rich above poor, the mentality that places humans above nature is a dysfunctional delusion.  (Petra K. Kelly)

In spite of our rather boastful talk about progress, and our pride in the gadgets of civilization, there is, I think, a growing suspicion -- indeed, perhaps an uneasy certainty -- that we have been sometimes a little too ingenious for our own good . . . We are beginning to wonder whether our power to change the face of nature should not have been tempered with wisdom for our own good, and with a greater sense of responsibility for the welfare of generations to come.  (Rachel Carson)
