Quotes on Quotable Environmental Quotes

Seldom do we hear of critical analysis being scrutinized too, or movie or book reviews being reviewed. The most famous quotes-however irrelevant they are in the context- we used to clip on our messages and posts don’t get too much rap, and if they do, we have to treat them as things with halos atop their heads- no chances for rebuttal and arguments. And this is where we break the bedraggling nature of this questionable tradition. Forget the profoundness of the literary pundits, the academicians, the philosophers, and other charlatans: let’s make a quote on these famous quotable environmental quotes. 1. Thank God men cannot fly, and lay waste the sky as well as the earth. ~Henry David Thoreau “Hey! What do we expect from a transcendentalist? Making off-the-record remarks about ‘flying’, and ‘sky’ doesn’t cut the fact that ‘civil disobedience’ is not any more lenient than laying waste in the biosphere or the atmosphere. But a reference to the Supreme Being cloaks any chance of suspicion from other literary critics.” 2.

Modern technology Owes ecology An apology. ~Alan M. Eddison “Alan Eddison must have been a frustrated haiku artist in connection to the worn-out rhyme and metrical scheme. But let us not forget that technology is ontologically good and evil; that depends on how the human being uses it. The root of all evil is the human mind.”

3.

Don't blow it - good planets are hard to find. ~Quoted in Time “Well, I agree that the Earth is a good planet; but whoever found it must have a monument erected in his honor.”

4.

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children. ~Native American Proverb “This is a great proverb. Especially to the spoiled brat who assumes she deserves to have that next iPhone 5.”

5.

There are no passengers on Spaceship Earth. We are all crew. ~Marshall McLuhan, 1964 “How come I have not been given clear orders? And the next question is: Who is the darn captain? Now I see why we are apparently listless.”

6.

Economic advance is not the same thing as human progress. ~John Clapham, A Concise Economic History of Britain, 1957 “This, I greatly believe. Huge and tall buildings, teeny-weeny gizmos, and advanced weaponry are not representations of human development. Usually, these are just equipment that hide man’s ill-adaptations to nature; a response to an ill-desperation for survival. The more we step forward to fight for our lives, the lower


the chances of stepping back to see the bigger picture of things and think things over before launching a sound attack.” Isn’t it fun to reevaluate the significance of these great environmental quotes?
