Forest Aphorism #197

Abstract

Abstract

“Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he’s been given.  But up to now he hasn’t been a creator, only a destroyer.  Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life’s become extinct, and the climate’s ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day.”

“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”

JOHN MUIR

“The forest is a peculiar organism of unlimited kindness and benevolence that makes no demands for its sustenance and extends generously the products of its life activity; it affords protection to all beings, offering shade even to the ax-man who destroys it.”

BUDDHA
