While perusing quotes for a recent work piece, I stumbled across some of these fantastic quotes. Read and enjoy.
- “Why do people give each other flowers? To celebrate various important occasions, they’re killing living creatures? Why restrict it to plants? ‘Sweetheart, let’s make up. Have this deceased squirrel.'” – The Washington Post
- “I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?” – Robert Redford, Yosemite National Park dedication, 1985
- “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
- “It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.” – Ansel Adams
