Humans will not be free until the last king is strangled by the entrails of the last priest.

-Denis Didoret

There is more to life than increasing its speed.

-Mahatma Gandhi

The last word in ignorance is the person who says of an animal or plant: "What good is it?" If the land mechanism as a whole is good, then every part is good, whether we understand it or not. If the biota, in the course of aeons, has built something we like but do not understand, then who but a fool would discard seemingly useless parts. To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering.

-Aldo Leopold

As man proceeds toward his announced goal of the conquest of nature, he has written a depressing record of destruction directed not only against the earth he inhabits but against the life that shares it with him.

-Rachel Carson

You must be on the path, before you can turn and walk into the wild.

-Gary Snyder
