12 “Congress recognizes…that each person has a responsibility to contribute to the preservation and enhancement of the environment.” - NEPA, 1969

13 “ The most significant threats to our environment now seem to lie not with major industrial sites, but in the habits of ordinary Americans: we like to drive big powerful cars, use a lot of electricity, generate a lot of waste, enjoy cheap food, live in grassy suburbs, and collectively send pollution in massive amounts to often distant waterways and airsheds.” - Former EPA Administrator William Ruchelshaus, 1996

33 “I see a world in the future in which we understand that all life is related to us and we treat that life with great humility and respect. I see us as well as social creatures, and when I began to look back and say, ‘what is the fundamental bottom line for us as social creatures?’…I couldn’t believe it because it seemed so hippy dippy, but it was Love. Love is the force that makes us fully human.” - David Suzuki.

34 “Could a greater miracle take place than for us to look through each other’s eyes for an instant?” Henry David Thoreau
