Remember This One?
"Teach your children what we have taught our children, that the Earth is our mother. Whatever befalls the Earth befalls the sons of the Earth. If men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. This we know - the Earth does not belong to man - man belongs to the Earth. This we know."
- Chief Seattle
2 . How generous you are, Earth, and how strong is your yearning for your children lost between that which they have attained and that which they could not obtain. We clamor and you smile; we flit but you stay! We extract your elements to make cannons and bombs, but out of our elements you create lilies and roses.
Kahlil Gibran, 1883-1931
