I agree - it has an ecstatic, pantheistic ring. Reminds me somewhat of this one:
Quero hacer contigo lo que la primavera hace con los cerezos.
[I want to do to you what spring does to the cherry trees.]
Loren, I'm awed by that quotation.
Great stuff, Daniel. Who would have thought that Sitting Bull, besides being a fearsome warrior, was a brilliant poet?
“Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!”
I suppose that one reason I have always detested religion is its sly tendency to insinuate the idea that the universe is designed with 'you' in mind or, even worse, that there is a divine plan into which one fits whether one knows it or not. This kind of modesty is too arrogant for me.― Christopher HitchensRuth, yours is damned important, too. Without a conducive environment, there is no US, or certainly at least no US that would be recognizable as we are now. Homo sapiens is pretty adaptable, but with climate change threatening to alter the entire planet, what will we have to give up for the ability to continue to exist?
Good Bill Hicks quote. Here's one from Jonathan Watts:
… for me the environment is not a subject, it is the prism through which everything else must be seen. It is the basis for the economy, for science, for society, for politics. Adam Smith, Albert Einstein, Karl Marx and Mao Zedong never understood this. Nor did the founders of the great religions. They didn’t need to. They did not live in the Anthropocene.
Just for fun, an oldie but a goodie: I don't want to believe. I want to know. ― Carl Sagan
Good one, Carl.
This isn't a half-bad epitaph:
Yes, ridiculous, and harmful.
