Today I went to two places I have been wanting to go to for quite some time – the Washington Landfill and the Katy Trail. Very different from each other at first glance, they exist in close proximity and on the same Earth we all live on.
Happy Earth Day!
“What is the use of a house if you haven’t got a tolerable planet to put it on?”
–Henry David Thoreau
“Earth provides enough to satisfy every man’s needs, but not every man’s greed.”
“Until a man duplicates a blade of grass, Nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favorable comparison with the products of Nature, the living cell of a plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life.”
— Thomas Alva Edison
“How can we be so arrogant? The planet is, was, and always will be stronger than us. We can’t destroy it; if we overstep the mark, the planet will simply erase us from its surface and carry on existing. Why don’t they start talking about not letting the planet destroy us?”
― Paulo Coelho, The Winner Stands Alone
