Environmentalism Quotes

Modern man’s capacity for destruction is quixotic evidence of humanity’s capacity for reconstruction. The powerful technological agents we have unleashed against the environment include many of the agents we require for its reconstruction.

George F. Will (1941-, American Political Columnist)


What have we achieved in mowing down mountain ranges, harnessing the energy of mighty rivers, or moving whole populations about like chess pieces, if we ourselves remain the same restless, miserable, frustrated creatures we were before? To call such activity progress is utter delusion. We may succeed in altering the face of the earth until it is unrecognizable even to the Creator, but if we are unaffected wherein lies the meaning?

Henry Miller (1891-1980, American Author)


I am I plus my surroundings and if I do not preserve the latter, I do not preserve myself.

Jose Ortega Y Gasset (1883-1955, Spanish Essayist, Philosopher)


It hurts the spirit, somehow, to read the word environments, when the plural means that there are so many alternatives there to be sorted through, as in a market, and voted on.

Lewis Thomas (1913-, American Physician, Educator)


That which is not good for the bee-hive cannot be good for the bees.

Marcus Aurelius (121-80 AD, Roman Emperor, Philosopher)
