Great Green Quotes

While perusing quotes for a recent work piece, I stumbled across some of these fantastic quotes. Read and enjoy.

  • “How long can men thrive between walls of brick, walking on asphalt pavements, breathing the fumes of coal and of oil, growing, working, dying, with hardly a thought of wind, and sky, and fields of grain, seeing only machine-made beauty, the mineral-like quality of life?  – Charles A. Lindbergh, Reader’s Digest, November 1939
