Earth Day Quotes and Sayings

The true purpose of Earth Day is sometimes misunderstood by people. This day is not simply a celebration of the beautiful earth; it is a call for everyone of us to protect the environment and the Earth's natural resources. In sum, this is a somber but hopeful event designed to raise awareness to the gradual degradation of the earth and the actions required to remedy it. There are actually two Earth Days (one in March and one in April). The latter has become a popular occasion observed by countries around the world. I would like to share a small compilation of Earth Day quotes and sayings for all to enjoy. 

"Earth Day is celebrated on April 22nd, but the spirit of Earth Day should be kept alive everyday." 

"Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children's children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance." Theodore Roosevelt

"Earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed." Mahatma Gandhi

"Why are ecologists and environmentalists so feared and hated? This is because in part what they have to say is new to the general public, and the new is always alarming." Garrett Hardin 

"We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children." Native American Proverb

"It is our collective and individual responsibility to protect and nurture the global family, to support its weaker members and to preserve and tend to the environment in which we all live." Dalai Lama

"I am neither a global warming alarmist nor a climate change denier. But I do love the earth very much and will do everything I can to protect its beauty." Simon Nguyen

"The most important environmental issue is one that is rarely mentioned, and that is the lack of a conservation ethic in our culture." Gaylord Nelson 

"It is absolutely imperative that we protect, preserve and pass on this genetic heritage for man and every other living thing in as good a condition as we received it." David Brower 

Happy Earth Day and be active!
