Destruction, hence, like creation, is one of Nature’s mandates.
Marquis de Sade
I believe the accepted model of capitalism that demands endless growth deserves the blame for the destruction of nature, and it should be displaced. Failing that, I try to work with those companies and help them change the way they think about our resources.
Yvon Chouinard
Peace and the survival of life on earth as we know it are threatened by human activities which lack a commitment to humanitarian values. Destruction of nature and nature’s resources result from ignorance, greed and lack of respect for the earth’s living things.
Dalai Lama
I believe until fairly recently our destructions of nature were more or less unwitting — the by-products, so to speak, of our ignorance or weakness or depravity. It is our present principled and elaborately rationalized rape and plunder of the natural world that is a new thing under the sun.
Wendell Berry
Our destruction of nature is not just bad stewardship, or stupid economics, or a betrayal of family responsibility; it is the most horrid blasphemy. It is flinging God’s gifts into His face, as if they were of no worth beyond that assigned to them by our destruction of them.
Wendell Berry
I believe our biggest issue is the same biggest issue that the whole world is facing, and that’s habitat destruction.
Steve Irwin
The more clearly we can focus our attention on the wonders and realities of the universe about us, the less taste we shall have for destruction.
Rachel Carson
The idea of wilderness needs no defense. It only needs more defenders.
Remaining silent about the destruction of nature is an endorsement of that destruction.
Edward Abbey
The idea of wilderness needs no defense, it only needs defenders.
