Philosophical and profound quotations, from The Quote Garden.
Adopting the bold stance involved in restoration work can catalyze a different kind of transformation. By becoming active partners in regenerating the health of their localities--and, in a less dramatic way, of the Earth as a whole--people start to reverse the soul-numbing patterns of exploiting and abusing the source of so many life-sustaining gifts. They also begin to release the often-repressed, but nonetheless crippling, emotions--guilt and shame, grief and despair, loneliness and powerlessness--associated with going along with the relentless machinery of corporate consumer culture.

HONESTY QUOTES - Notable Quotes
[I believe] that animals have a worth in and of themselves, and that they are not inferior to human beings but rather just different from us, and that they really don't exist for us nor do they belong to us...it should not be a question of how they should be treated within the context of their usefulness, or perceived usefulness, to us, but rather whether we have a right to use them at all.Â Ingrid Newkirk, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals
