Henry George

Where the conditions of material progress are most fully realized, we find the deepest poverty and the sharpest struggle for existence.

Garrett Hardin

(O)ur particular concept of private property, which deters us from exhausting the positive resources of the earth, favors pollution.

Native American Proverb

We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children.

Thomas Paine

I care not how affluent some may be provided none are miserable in consequence of it.
