Monday's Nature Quote

We cannot win this battle to save species and environments without forging an emotional bond between ourselves and nature as well--for we will not fight to save what we do not love. 
~Stephen Jay Gould

  1. Save the environment?  It's gonna change, with or without our help.  We can make an effort to stop shitting on our own doorstep, though.

  2. Well, now I had to consider this for a moment.  I think the urge to "fight" for species and environments shadows a thin line.  There are many who don't even fight for the things they love.  It may be a matter of energy, time , or stupidity.  Not sure.   And I'll sheepishly add that I wouldn't fight to save mosquitoes...(What was God thinking when he created those?)

  4. Barb, I asked my father that very question when I was little, and without hesitating, he said "frog food."

  5. Yeah, wouldn't it be enlightening to somehow be able to *see*all the connections in this world?!
