"What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror
reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another."
"The lower animals are our brethren. I include among them the lion
and the tiger. We do not know how to live with these carnivorous beasts
and poisonous reptiles because of our ignorance. When man learns better,
he will learn to befriend even these. Today he does not even know how to
befriend a man of a different religion or from a different country."
"We must become
the change we seek."
“There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need
but not for man's greed.”
"We should be able to refuse to live if the price of
living be the torture of sentient beings."
