Quotes for Earth Day

and the last river been poisoned
and the last fish been caught
will we realize we cannot eat money.

The earth is what we all have in common. 
- Wendell Berry Author, farmer, cultural critic 
We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors,
we borrow it from our children.
- Native American Proverb

Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's need,
but not every man's greed.

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand,
And eternity in an hour.
- William Blake Poet, painter 1757-1827
