#1. Ensuring that our home planet is healthy and life sustaining is an overwhelming priority that undercuts all other human activities. The ship must first float.
Our failure to grasp these fundamental tenants of existence will be our undoing. And one thing is for certain. No calvary is going to come charging to our rescue. We are going to have to rescue ourselves or die trying.
Workable solutions are urgently needed. Saving seals and tigers or fighting yet another oil pipeline through a wilderness area, while laudable, is merely shuffling the deck chairs on the Titanic. The real issue is our elementary accord with Earth and the plant and animal kingdoms has to be revitalized and re-understood.
The burning question is, How? - Author: Lawrence Anthony
Santolina Plant quotes by Lawrence Anthony
#2. Look at the animals roaming the forest: God's spirit dwells within them. Look at the birds flying across the sky: God's spirit dwells within them. Look at the tiny insects crawling in the grass: God's spirit dwells within them. Look at the fish in the river and sea ... .There is no creature on earth in whom God is absent ... his breath had brought every creature to life ... God's spirit is present within plant as well. The presence of God's spirit in all living things is what makes them beautiful; and if we look with God's eyes, nothing on earth is ugly. - Author: Pelagius
Santolina Plant quotes by Pelagius
#3. The ocean to my right was maroon, the sky above it silver. There were sand trails through the thick purple ice plant that grew along the roadside ... but now the sky is the color of peaches ...
It was a ball of bright saffron sinking into the sea, turning the water purple, the sky orange and green. - Author: Andre Dubus III
Santolina Plant quotes by Andre Dubus III
#4. Milwaukee used to be flush with good jobs. But throughout the second half of the twentieth century, bosses in search of cheap labor moved plants overseas or to Sunbelt communities, where unions were weaker or didn't exist. Between 1979 and 1983, Milwaukee's manufacturing sector lost more jobs than during the Great Depression - about 56,000 of them. The city where virtually everyone had a job in the postwar years saw its unemployment rate climb into the double digits. Those who found new work in the emerging service industry took a pay cut. As one historian observed, 'Machinists in the old Allis-Chalmers plant earned at least $11.60 an hour; clerks in the shopping center that replaced much of that plant in 1987 earned $5.23. - Author: Matthew Desmond
Santolina Plant quotes by Matthew Desmond
#5. A doctor can bury his mistakes, but an architect can only advise his clients to plant vines. - Author: Frank Lloyd Wright
Santolina Plant quotes by Frank Lloyd Wright
#6. One of the striking things about places heavily contaminated by radioactive nuclides is the richness of their wildlife. This is true of the land around Chernobyl, the bomb test sites of the Pacific, and areas near the United States' Savannah River nuclear weapons plant of the Second World War. Wild plants and animals do not perceive radiation as dangerous, and any slight reduction it may cause in their lifespans is far less a hazard than is the presence of people and their pets. - Author: James E. Lovelock
Santolina Plant quotes by James E. Lovelock
#7. We experimented and we experienced many altered states of awareness. We used the power plants. I did that for a year or two. - Author: Frederick Lenz
Santolina Plant quotes by Frederick Lenz
#8. If only the know-how could be equalled by the will-to-serve, by compassion for human suffering cause by hunger and deficiency diseases, there is no reason why fully balanced diets consisting largely of plant-foods should not be made available for hundreds of millions of undernourished people in the West as well as in the Third World. - Author: Robert Hart
Santolina Plant quotes by Robert Hart
#9. Nature herself does not distinguish between what seed it receives. It grows whatever seed is planted; this is the way life works. Be mindful of the seeds you plant today, as they will become the crop you harvest. - Author: Mary Morrissey
Santolina Plant quotes by Mary Morrissey
#10. We cannot conceive how the Foetus is form'd in the Womb, nor as much as how a Plant springs from the Earth we tread on ... And if we are ignorant of the most obvious things about us, and the most considerable within our selves, 'tis then no wonder that we know not the constitution and powers of the creatures, to whom we are such strangers. - Author: Joseph Glanvill
Santolina Plant quotes by Joseph Glanvill
#11. Plant medicine does not just improve symptoms; it approaches healing the whole of the body - as opposed to Western medicine, which may just approach the symptom. - Author: Karen Rose
Santolina Plant quotes by Karen Rose
#12. All that each person is, and experiences, and shall never experience, in body and mind, all these things are differing expressions of himself and of one root, and are identical: and not one of these things nor one of these persons is ever quite to be duplicated, nor replaced, nor has it ever quite had precedent: but each is a new and incommunicably tender life, wounded in every breath, and almost as hardly killed as easily wounded: sustaining, for a while, without defense, the enormous assaults of the universe:

So that how it can be that a stone, a plant, a star, can take on the burden of being; and how it is that a child can take on the burden of breathing; and how through so long a continuation of cumulation of the burden of each moment one on another, does any creature beat to exist, and not break utterly to fragments of nothing: these are matters too dreadful and fortitudes too gigantic to meditate long and not forever to worship: - Author: James Agee
Santolina Plant quotes by James Agee
#13. A Christmas tree
the perfect gift for a guy. The plant is already dead. - Author: Jay Leno
Santolina Plant quotes by Jay Leno
#14. Posthumous fame is a plant of tardy growth, for our body must be the seed of it; or we may liken it to a torch, which nothing but the last spark of life can light up; or we may compare it to the trumpet of the archangel, for it is blown over the dead; but unlike that awful blast, it is of earth, not of heaven, and can neither rouse nor raise us. - Author: Charles Caleb Colton
Santolina Plant quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#15. If you want to save seeds from year to year, you need to grow open-pollinated varieties. The words "heirloom" and "open-pollinated" are sometimes used interchangeably, but they don't necessarily mean the same thing. "Heirloom" refers to a variety that was popular before World War II. "Open-pollinated" refers to a plant that produces stable characteristics from generation to generation. Heirlooms are usually open-pollinated, because hybridization in edible plants didn't become common until the 1970s. - Author: Katie Elzer-Peters
Santolina Plant quotes by Katie Elzer-Peters
#16. The sine qua non for obtaining a psychedelic experience is humbling yourself to the point where you admit that you must submit to the experience of the plant or the drug. This act of surrender is the major technical function you will be called upon to perform during the psychedelic trip. - Author: Terence McKenna
Santolina Plant quotes by Terence McKenna
#17. Why is it that only girls stand on the sides of their feet? As if they're afraid to plant themselves? - Author: Barbara Kingsolver
Santolina Plant quotes by Barbara Kingsolver
#18. You can plant a dream. - Author: Anne Campbell
Santolina Plant quotes by Anne Campbell
#19. He that has energy enough to root out a vice should go further, and try to plant a virtue in its place. - Author: Charles Caleb Colton
Santolina Plant quotes by Charles Caleb Colton
#20. Parents should plant deeply the seed of the work ethic into the hearts and habits of their children. - Author: Joseph B. Wirthlin
Santolina Plant quotes by Joseph B. Wirthlin
#21. Self-expression has to come out pure. It has to have an environment waiting for it. It has to have a garden it can plant itself in. - Author: Melinda Gebbie
Santolina Plant quotes by Melinda Gebbie
#22. One in eight plant species face extinction. - Author: David Attenborough
Santolina Plant quotes by David Attenborough
#23. The romantic contrast between modern industry that "destroys nature" and our ancestors who "lived in harmony with nature" is groundless. Long before the Industrial Revolution, Homo sapiens held the record among all organisms for driving the most plant and animal species to their extinctions. We have the dubious distinction of being the deadliest species in the annals of life. - Author: Yuval Noah Harari
Santolina Plant quotes by Yuval Noah Harari
#24. Never to have seen anything but the temperate zone is to have lived on the fringe of the world. Between the Tropic of Capricorn and the Tropic of Cancer live the majority of all the plant species, the vast majority of the insects, most of the strange ... quadrupeds, all of the great and most of the poisonous snakes and large lizards, most of the brilliantly colored sea fishes, and the strangest and most gorgeously plumaged of the birds. - Author: David Fairchild
Santolina Plant quotes by David Fairchild
#25. Practice being kind to yourself in small, concrete ways. Look at your refrigerator. Are you feeding yourself nicely? Do you have socdks? An extra set of sheets? What about a new house plant? A thermos for the long drive to work? Allow yourself to pitch out some of your ragged clothes. You don't have to keep everything. - Author: Julia Cameron
Santolina Plant quotes by Julia Cameron
#26. When they turn the sun
on again I'll plant children
under it, I'll light up my soul
with a match and let it sing ... - Author: Anne Sexton
Santolina Plant quotes by Anne Sexton
#27. I come from a very small island which is packed with people. I mean, jam-packed with people. I've lived a life which has been pretty much full up with ambition, ideas, stimulus, creativity, some negativity, which I try to avoid. Austin is a great sort of stepping-off point, if you like. I'm from a temperate climate. - Author: Robert Plant
Santolina Plant quotes by Robert Plant
#28. Plant hope's seed within your heart
For hope's where happiness can start. - Author: Ilchi Lee
Santolina Plant quotes by Ilchi Lee
#29. I'm a piano player. I never thought of myself as a singer, at all. I was always trying to sound like somebody else. I don't like my own voice, I like Ray Charles, Robert Plant, I like Joe Cocker, Rod Stewart, people that have an edge in their voice. - Author: Billy Joel
Santolina Plant quotes by Billy Joel
#30. What one person can do is to plant the seeds of love and outrage in the hearts of a movement. And if those hearts are fertile ground, those seeds of love and outrage will grow into a revolution. - Author: Tim DeChristopher
Santolina Plant quotes by Tim DeChristopher
#31. Human kindness was like a sun shining upon him, and he flourished like a plant in good soil. - Author: Jack London
Santolina Plant quotes by Jack London
#32. Later, when they were almost asleep he had called out to her.
'Finke?'
'Yeah?'
'We'll make a great team. You plant. I build, - Author: Melina Marchetta
Santolina Plant quotes by Melina Marchetta
#33. Seeds carry life from generation to generation without end. Through the seeds speak the voices of the ancestors. Each time we plant a seed, we become ancestors for the generations to come. - Author: Kenny Ausubel
Santolina Plant quotes by Kenny Ausubel
#34. Error is a hardy plant; it flourisheth in every coil; In the heart of the wise and good, alike with the wicked and foolish; For there is no error so crooked, but it hath in it some lines of truth. - Author: Martin Farquhar Tupper
Santolina Plant quotes by Martin Farquhar Tupper
#35. About two million years ago, man appeared. He has become the dominant species on the earth. All other living things, animal and plant, live by his sufferance. He is the custodian of life on earth, and in the solar system. It's a big responsibility. - Author: George Wald
Santolina Plant quotes by George Wald
#36. In the wild a plant and its pests are continually coevolving, in a dance of resistance and conquest that can have no ultimate victor. But coevolution ceases in an orchard of grafted trees, since they are genetically identical from generation to generation. The problem very simply is that the apple trees no longer reproduce sexually, as they do when they're grown from seed, and sex is nature's way of creating fresh genetic combinations. At the same time the viruses, bacteria, fungi, and insects keep very much at it, reproducing sexually and continuing to evolve until eventually they hit on the precise genetic combination that allows them to overcome whatever resistance the apples may have once possessed. Suddenly total victory is in the pests' sight - unless, that is, people come to the tree's rescue, wielding the tools of modern chemistry. - Author: Michael Pollan
Santolina Plant quotes by Michael Pollan
