The essence of the relationship between humans and the earth is that of a trust, a guardianship, where the future takes priority over the present and past.
Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children.
The future of everything we have accomplished since our intelligence evolved will depend on the wisdom of our actions over the next few years.
Every time you spend money, you’re casting a vote for the kind of world you want.
We don’t have to engage in grand, heroic actions to participate in the process of change. Small acts, when multiplied by millions of people, can transform the world.
Our greatest responsibility is to be good ancestors.
The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.
If you are thinking a year ahead, saw a seed. If you are thinking ten years ahead, plant a tree. If you are thinking one hundred years ahead, educate the people.
