[In Spite Of The String Of Magazine Covers Announcing The Contrary, We All Know That Ten Simple Things Will Not Save The Earth. There Are, Rather, Three Thousand Impossible Things That All Of Us Must Do, And Changing Our Light Bulbs, While Necessary, Is The Barest Beginning. We Are Being Called Upon To Act Against A Prevailing Culture, To Undermine Our Own Entrenched Tendency To Accumulate And To Consume, And To Refuse To Define Our Individuality By Our Presumed Ability To Do Whatever We Want.]

Robert Dykstra Quotes

"...our memory is enhanced by the emotion attending the event. The more intense the feelings the more accessible to the memory is the event.

For our own survival we cant forget them, and then we too easily forget the good stuff."

Quotes About Contributing To Community

"We seldom consider how much of our lives we must render in return for some object we barely want, seldom need, buy only because it was put before us...And this is understandable given the workings of our system where without a job we perish, where if we dont want a job and are happy to get by we are labeled irresponsible, non-contributing leeches on society. But if we hire a fleet of bulldozers, tear up half the countryside and build some monstrous factory, casino or mall, we are called entrepreneurs, job-creators, stalwarts of the community. Maybe we should all be shut away on some planet for the insane. Then again, maybe that is where we are." - Author: Ferenc Máté

Quotes About Terror Teachers

"These sculptors consituteted a new movement, he claimed. Not for them the bald abstraction of their predecessors. Their creations were rooted in a postwar world of broken buildings and broken people. Their language was one of terror and trepidation. They tore into the human form, flaying it, tearing it limb from limb, discarding what they didnt want. And when they were done, they found themselves presenting to the world an army of creatures—part man, part beast, and sometimes part machine. As one of Harrys teachers at Corsham had said to him: ‘When youve seen the inside of a Sherman tank after a direct hit, it all becomes the same thing." - Author: Mark Mills
