Can one generation bind another, and all others, in succession forever? I think not. The Creator has made the earth for the living, not the dead.

Thomas Jefferson
The magnitude of this event (9/11) turned the world into a scary place. And perhaps the scariest part of all was that these terrorists believed they were doing God’s work.

I’m an Earth ecstatic, and my creed is simple: All life is sacred, life loves life, and we are capable of improving our behavior toward one another. As basic as that is, for me it’s also tonic and deeply spiritual, glorifying the smallest life-form and embracing the most distant stars.
Diane Ackerman
When I curse Fate, it’s not me, but the earth in me.
Czeslaw Milosz

Cormac McCarthy

George Bernard Shaw
They’re the salt of the earth, those girls. They don’t sit each night and compare notes on groups, criticising lyrics, asking if it’s valid. They just play the record… yeah, and maybe they dance. I love them. I love them dearly
David Bowie
Our beliefs are rooted deep in our earth, no matter what you have done to it and how much of it you have paved over. And if you leave all that concrete unwatched for a year or two, our plants, the native Indian plants, will pierce that concrete and push up through it.
John Fire Lame Deer
Spring bursts today,
For love is risen and all the earth’s at play.

Geoffrey Marcy
The irony is that while God doesn’t need us but still wants us, we desperately need God but don’t really want Him most of the time. He treasures us and anticipates our departure from this earth to be with Him-and we wonder, indifferently, how much we have to do for Him to get by.

I would not have lasted a minute, literally a minute, on this Earth without God and angels by my side, because I was born. And right as I was born, I went into a respiratory arrest.

The phenomenon of UFO doesn’t say anything about the presence of intelligence in space. It just shows how rare it is here on the earth.

Charles Kingsley
A man is known by the books he reads, by the company he keeps, by the praise he gives, by his dress, by his tastes, by his distastes, by the stories he tells, by his gait, by the notion of his eye, by the look of his house, of his chamber; for nothing on earth is solitary but every thing hath affinities infinite.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
God wants to see human beings, not ghosts who shun the world. . . . Our marriage must be a ‘yes’ to God’s earth. It must strengthen our resolve to do and accomplish something on earth. I fear that Christians who venture to stand on earth on only one leg will stand in heaven on only one leg too.
Dietrich Bonhoeffer
The Bible is the only credible guide either as to the real relationship between man and the earth and the great Creator of both or concerning the purpose of the creation of both.

Richard Bach

Dennis Miller
I believe cats to be spirits come to earth.
Jules Verne

Simon Newcomb
You can get anywhere on earth by falling asleep.
Feist

America is the wealthiest nation on Earth, but its people are mainly poor, and poor Americans are urged to hate themselves.
Kurt Vonnegut
People gave ear to an upstart astrologer who strove to show that the earth revolves, not the heavens or the firmament, the sun and the moon….This fool wishes to reverse the entire science of astronomy; but sacred scripture tells us [Joshua 10:13]that Joshua commanded the sun to stand still, and not the earth.
Martin Luther

It is blasphemy to separate oneself from the earth and look down on it like a god. It is more than blasphemy; it is dangerous. We can never be gods, after all – but we can become something less than human with frightening ease.
N.K. Jemisin

Archimedes once said that ‘Give me where to stand, and I will move the earth.’ There is a much more difficult task than this: To try to lift an ignorant up from where he stands, because he is heavily chained to the stupidity!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
I want to know why I’m alive. I want to understand. It’s like exploration; it’s like someone being interested in a place and its history, digging into the earth and looking for it, searching – it’s a passion.
Juliette Binoche
The earth together with its surrounding waters must in fact have such a shape as its shadow reveals, for it eclipses the moon with the arc of a perfect circle.
Nicolaus Copernicus
It is much better to be drawn by the joys of heaven, than driven by the sorrows of earth.
Charles Henry Mackintosh
Love to throw yourself on the earth and kiss it. Kiss the earth and love it with an unceasing, consuming love.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
We were put on this earth to make things.
W. H. Auden
That is the stimulus of nature; it is never, never old, and always developing. Even the scarred, wrinkled earth herself is a mere infant among the old ladies and gentlemen that tread foot-paths in the sky.
Mabel Osgood Wright
The smell of moist earth and lilacs hung in the air like wisps of the past and hints of the future.
Margaret Millar
I love the Lord Jesus Christ and His Church, which has been restored to the earth in our day. I treasure the teachings of His holy life from newborn infant to resurrected man, Son of God.
Margaret D. Nadauld
It was one lesson he never forgot.You don’t sit back when you or a loved one is being assaulted.And you don’t act like the goverment with their “proportional responses” and all that nonsense.If someone hurts you,mercy and pity must be put aside,You eliminate the enemy.You scorch the earth.
Harlan Coben
If I go down, it’s never easy. At least my opponent knows they have to go to the end of the earth to take me out no matter what the circumstances. I do try to compete. Even if it’s not your best day, I just try to walk off the court knowing I gave 100,000 percent.
Venus Williams
The nameless is the beginning of Heaven and Earth. The named is the mother of all things.
Laozi
Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!
Sitting Bull
The future of Cuba is one earned by a country that has resisted for over 50 years against the most powerful empire on Earth. The resilience of its people made this triumph materialize.
Alejandro Castro Espin
I feel like a lot of famous people think that they’re doing a good thing by being kind. They’re like, “Hey, I could be an asshole, but I’m not! Isn’t it so cool that I’m so down to earth?” Like, No, you’re not!
Miley Cyrus
If you believe that the world is going to come to an end – and perhaps any day now – does it not drain one’s motivation to improve life on earth while we’re here?
Bill Maher
Earth, receive an honored guest; William Yeats is laid to rest. Let the Irish vessel lie Emptied of its poetry.
W. H. Auden
In the United States today we have the most unequal wealth and income distribution of any major country on earth – worse than at any time since the 1920s. This is an economy that must be changed in fundamental ways.
Bernie Sanders
The profits of oil, coal, and natural gas companies will have to yield to the imperative of sustaining life on earth.
Robert Pollin
God is a lion that comes in the night. God is a hawk gliding among the stars– If all the stars and the earth, and the living flesh of the night that flows in between them, and whatever is beyond them Were that one bird. He has a bloody beak and harsh talons, he pounces and tears.
Robinson Jeffers
Before you were born—before any of your defects were apparent to you—they were absolutely apparent to God. That didn’t stop Him from calling your name and setting you apart. He placed you on the earth at a certain time for a pre-decided purpose.
Steven Furtick
I shall devote only a few lines to the expression of my belief in the importance of science В… it is by this daily striving after knowledge that man has raised himself to the unique position he occupies on earth, and that his power and well-being have continually increased.
Marie Curie
Were we to choose our leaders on the basis of their reading experience and not their political programs, there would be much less grief on earth. I believe … that for someone who has read a lot of Dickens to shoot his like in the name of an idea is harder than for someone who has read no Dickens.
Joseph Brodsky
The press of my foot to the earth springs a hundred affections.
Walt Whitman
What has made America the wealthiest, most successful country on Earth historically has been our commitment to education.
Barack Obama
The most powerful nation on earth should be able to pass a fair, effective immigration law that combines compassion with responsibility and does not injure hard working Americans who are taxed up to here.
Bill O’Reilly
I don’t want what I am saying to sound like a prophecy or anything like an analysis of modern society …. these are only feelings I have, and I am the least speculative man on earth.
Michelangelo Antonioni
I demonstrate by means of philosophy that the earth is round, and is inhabited on all sides; that it is insignificantly small, and is borne through the stars.
Johannes Kepler
Unity and self-sacrifice, of themselves, even when fostered by the most noble means, produce a facility for hating. Even when men league themselves mightily together to promote tolerance and peace on earth, they are likely to be violently intolerant toward those not of a like mind.
Eric Hoffer
Every individual human being born on this earth has the capacity to become a unique and special person, unlike any who has ever existed before or ever will exist again.

Most souls are into power on the earth. Most souls here are developing their occult body.
Frederick Lenz
Nonfiction brought me back to earth and sobered me up whenever it seemed like I’d become too drunk on the lives and loves of imaginary people, but that doesn’t mean it was any less thrilling or transporting, although it was often more illuminating.

I founded Friends of the Earth to make the Sierra Club look reasonable. Then I founded the Earth Island Institute to make Friends of the Earth seem reasonable.

Dreams are the wanderings of the spirit though all nine heavens and all nine earths.
Lu Yen-hsun
I don’t go along with going to Moon first to build a launch pad to go to Mars. We should go to Mars from Earth orbit. We have already been to the Moon; we’ve already practiced.

To every Armageddonist, every earth lover must keep saying with all the sincerity and affection we can muster, “May God make this world as beautiful to you as it has been to me.
David James
If the Earth could be made to rotate twice as fast, managers would get twice as much done. If the Earth could be made to rotate twenty times as fast, everyone else would get twice as much done since all the managers would fly off.

Joyce Meyer
Uranium is the raw material of a power-elite who has taken Mother Earth’s every living creature hostage.
Petra Kelly
Once I spent a whole day there, a blade of grass in each hand to anchor me to the warm earth. I watched the sun rise, pass over my head and set. Ladybirds mated on my knuckle; a shrew nibbled a hole in my stocking while I tried not to laugh. Such a day was worth any punishment.
Emma Donoghue
If you can wait, and not be tired by waiting … if you can dream, and not make dreams your master; if you can think, and not make thoughts your aim; if you can meet with Triumph and Disaster, and treat those two impostors just the same; … yours is the earth and everything that’s in it…
Rudyard Kipling
There’s roads, and there’s roads,
And they call. Can’t you hear it?
Roads of the earth
And roads of the spirit
The best roads of all
Are the ones that aren’t certain.
One of those is where you’ll find me
‘Til they drop the big curtain.
Bruce Cockburn
Birth is a bittersweet event … a place where heaven and earth collide in a perplexing clash of hopes, dreams, facts, fears, questions, and expectations.
Debra Evans
You belong to the earth and the earth is hard.
Amanda Coplin
Silly dark elves. Earth is for Druids.
Kevin Hearne
If I’m in a relationship, I’ll go to the ends of the earth. If I’m on the road and we have a conversation, and she says, “God, I really wish I was there with you right now,” I’ll hang up the phone, send a car, and have the plane ready.
Josh Groban
I want to give a picture of Dublin so complete that if the city suddenly disappeared from the earth it could be reconstructed out of my book.
James Joyce
We look upon this shaken earth, and we declare our firm and fixed purpose – the building of a peace with justice in a world where moral law prevails.
Dwight D. Eisenhower
Long after this wonderful event in the Earth’s history, when the human species was spread over a good deal of Asia, Europe, and Africa, migration to the American continents began in attempts to find new feeding grounds and unoccupied areas for hunting and fishing.
Harry Johnston
The Atonement of Jesus Christ is real; it brings immortality to all and opens the door to eternal life. The gospel of Jesus Christ is again on the earth. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is true and living.
Dieter F. Uchtdorf
My mental boundaries expanded when I viewed the Earth against a black and uninviting vacuum, yet my country’s rich traditions had conditioned me to look beyond man-made boundaries and prejudices. One does not have to undertake a space flight to come by this feeling.
Rakesh Sharma
Is there evil but on earth? Or pain in every peopled sphere?
Well, be grateful for the sounding watchword “Evolution” here.
Alfred Lord Tennyson
He loved mountains, or he had loved the thought of them marching on the edge of stories brought from far away; but now he was borne down by the insupportable weight of Middle-earth. He longed to shut out the immensity in a quiet room by a fire.

James A. Michener
What is demanded by God today is not a message to a particular people alone, a message is demanded for the whole of humanity who has suffered under the 6,000-year rule of Satan (or “Shaitan”); whose evil is not confined to himself but is spread to all the corners of the Earth.

OH, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet, Till Earth and Sky stand presently at God’s great Judgment Seat; But there is neither East nor West, Border, nor Breed, nor Birth, When two strong men stand face to face, tho’ they come from the ends of the earth!

Ah, what a warning for a thoughtless man, Could field or grove, could any spot of earth, Show to his eye an image of the pangs Which it hath witnessed,-render back an echo Of the sad steps by which it hath been trod!
William Wordsworth
Show us not the aim without the way. For ends and means on earth are so entangled That changing one, you change the other too; Each different path brings other ends in view
Arthur Koestler
Where does rain come from? It comes from all the dirty water that evaporates from the earth, like urine and the water you throw out after washing your feet. Isn’t it wonderful how the sky can take that dirty water and change it into pure, clean water? Your mind can do the same with your defilements if you let it.

The moon… is a mass, akin to the mass of the earth, attracts the waters by a magnetic force, not because they are liquid, but because they possess earthy substance, and so share in the movements of a heavy body.

Czeslaw Milosz
Trees are poems the earth writes upon the sky, We fell them down and turn them into paper, That we may record our emptiness.
Khalil Gibran
Freedom of religion is one of the greatest gifts of God to man, without distinction of race and color. He is the author and lord of conscience, and no power on earth has a right to stand between God and the conscience.
Philip Schaff
I will not kill or hurt any living creature needlessly, nor destroy any beautiful thing, but will strive to save and comfort all gentle life, and guard and perfect all natural beauty upon the earth.
John Ruskin
The chunks of comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 were so large, and were moving so fast, that each hit Jupiter with at least the equivalent energy of the dinosaur-killing collision between Earth and an asteroid 65 million years ago. Whatever damage Jupiter sustained, one thing is for sure: it’s got no dinosaurs left.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Earth magic can help to sort out, work through and solve many of the minor crises and problems facing us as individuals today. True, it is not a simple solution to the world’s problems, but it can bring order into our lives, and that’s a good start.

Yes, we have ruined the Earth and have done an exceptionally good job of it. Yes, we should look at sustainable development. But we cannot afford to do things sequentially, but parallelly and make sure that we do not repeat our mistakes.
Rakesh Sharma
We have nothing to fear but fear itself,” Otto replied. “Oh, and a megalomaniacal headmaster, the world’s deadliets assassin, giant mutated plant monsters, an international cartel of supervillains, and the security forces of every country on earth, but other than that…just fear.
Mark Walden
It is not enough to have a vision. In order to have its power, you must enact your vision on earth for all to see. Only then do you have the power.
Black Elk
Why on earth do you carry a mirror around with you?” “It’s purely a defensive device. We seldom quarrel, and this is one of the reasons. Can you imagine yourself getting all worked up and contorted and illogical and then coming face to face with yourself, looking at yourself exactly as you look to everyone else?
Theodore Sturgeon
I—What on earth just happened?” “Well, nothing on Earth, obviously.
Kiersten White
I thought the earth remembered me, she took me back so tenderly, arranging her dark skirts, her pockets full of lichens and seeds. I slept as never before, a stone on the river bed, nothing between me and the white fire of the stars.
Mary Oliver
Submission to duty and God gives the highest energy. He, who has done the greatest work on earth, said that He came down from heaven, not to do His own will, but the will of Him who sent Him, Whoever allies himself with God is armed with all the forces of the invisible world.
James Freeman Clarke
I think that you may find that Tamera’s a little more vibrant and energetic, but I’m much more likely to go up to a person and say, “Hi, I’m Tia, nice to meet you”. Wheras Tamera is like…well …she’s a little shy. She’s down to earth. I’m more extroverted and she’s more introverted when meeting people.

It is false to believe that the sun revolves around the earth, but it is not absurd.
Terry Eagleton
We expect to receive again our own bodies, though they be dead and cast into the earth, for we maintain that with God nothing is impossible.
Justin Martyr
I would rather be rich affluent and greedy and go to hell when I die, than live in poverty on this earth.
Al Capone
The same stream of life that runs through my veins night and day runs through the world and dances in rhythmic measures. It is the same life that shoots in joy through the dust of the earth in numberless blades of grass and breaks into tumultuous waves of leaves and flowers.
Rabindranath Tagore
The globe of this earth … [is] … not just a machine but also a organised body as it has a regenerative power.
James Hutton
Worship and spiritual hunger make you so attractive to God that your circumstances cease to matter anymore. He will move heaven and earth to find a worshiper. When you begin to worship with all your being and desire, your heart turns Him toward you. You capture His attention and attracts His affection.
Tommy Tenney
But the golden-rod is one of the fairy, magical flowers; it grows not up to seek human love amid the light of day, but to mark to the discerning what wealth lies hid in the secret caves of earth.

The liberty of the whole earth was depending on the issue of the contest, and was ever such a prize won with so little innocent blood?
Thomas Jefferson
I mean, I grew up with pretty down-to-earth, atheist parents, but I was born a Pisces.

There is strength deep bedded in our hearts, of which we reck but little till the shafts of heaven have pierced its fragile dwelling. Must not earth be rent before her gems are found?
Felicia Hemans
The most important thing that we can do for the healing of our world is to hear inside ourselves, the sounds of the earth crying.
Nhat Hanh
Planet Earth is estimated to have a lifetime of nine billion years. And we’re right smack in the middle of our lifetime. We’ve been in the universe for 4.5 billion years. So, that should mean something. We should sort of take a look at where we came from and where we are going.
Miriam Defensor-Santiago
The biggest enemy we face is anthropocentrism. This is that common attitude that everything on this Earth was put here for [human] use.
Eric Pianka
Spake full well, in language quaint and olden, One who dwelleth by the castled Rhine, When he called the flowers, so blue and golden, Stars, that in earth’s firmament do shine.
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
All goes back to the earth, and so I do not desire pride of excess or power, but the contentments made by men who have had little: the fisherman’s silence receiving the river’s grace, the gardener’s musing on rows.
Wendell Berry
wonder what day god created the egg’ ‘how should we know? we should not question. our stay on earth is not for long. let us rejoice and believe and give thanks’. ‘eat a egg
Ernest Hemingway
We must make a great difference between God’s Word and the word of man. A man’s word is a little sound, that flies into the air, and soon vanishes; but the Word of God is greater than heaven and earth, yea, greater than death and hell, for it forms part of the power of God, and endures everlastingly.
Martin Luther
The human spirit was the strongest medicine on earth. And sometimes all it needed was a little encouragement to pull off a miracle.
David Baldacci
Just as a strongly flowing fountain is not blocked up by a handful of earth, so the compassion of the Creator is not overcome by the wickedness of his creatures.
Isaac of Nineveh
The Earth is big. There are huge natural forces that have worked over geological time. But it turns out, when you look carefully at the geological time, you can’t find anything like us.
Elizabeth Kolbert
Heaven and Earth last for ever. Why do Heaven and Earth last for ever? They are unborn, so ever living. The sage stays behind, thus he is ahead. He is detached, thus at one with all. Through selfless action, he attains fulfillment.
Laozi

Ban Ki-moon
A man who does not ask to much become the promise of his land. His marriage married to his place, he waits and does not stray.
Wendell Berry
Our lives are at once ordinary and mythical. At the same instant we have these magnificent hearts that pump through all sorrow and all winters we are alive on the earth.
Natalie Goldberg
But something cannot be made out of nothing. Dust rose in the air, caught the rays of the sun for a brief moment and sparkled, and then returned to the earth as mere dust.
David Klass
Don’t you see what’s at stake here? The ultimate aim of all science to penetrate the unknown. Do you realize we know less about the earth we live on than about the stars and the galaxies of outer space? The greatest mystery is right here, right under our feet.

John Hancock
Before we get too depressed about the state of our politics, let’s remember our history ….. Many forms of Government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. What is amazing, is that despite all the conflict, our experiment in democracy has worked better than any form of government on earth
Barack Obama
If more of us valued food and cheer and song above hoarded gold, it would be a merrier world.

A lot of people have this ego need that makes them want to believe that Earth is the center of the universe and humans are the most important species, the supreme expression of creation.
Ann Druyan
A map says to you. Read me carefully, follow me closely, doubt me not… I am the earth in the palm of your hand.
Beryl Markham
It’s just simply the fact that the NSA does not think anybody should be able to communicate anywhere on the Earth without them being able to invade it.
Glenn Greenwald
Darwin begins by assuming life upon the earth; the Bible reveals the source of life and chronicles its creation.
William Jennings Bryan
On the basis of being a woman, by playing an alien, I avoid playing someone’s girlfriend here on Earth because that’s a bit of a canker sore.
Zoe Saldana
And what a congress of stinks!- Roots ripe as old bait, Pulpy stems, rank, silo-rich, Leaf mold, manure, lime, piled against slippery planks, Nothing would give up life: Even the dirt kept breathing a small breath.
Theodore Roethke
Let us learn upon earth those things which can call us to heaven.
St. Jerome
A letter is the most imperishable thing on earth.
Margaret Elizabeth Sangster
A lot of people think Christianity is about always being perfect. It’s actually the opposite of that. It’s realizing that we’re all humans, and that’s why God sent his Son to this earth – to save people.
Billy Ray Cyrus
So powerful, in fact, is simple string in taming the world to human will and ingenuity that I suspect it to be the unseen weapon that allowed the human race to conquer the earth, that enabled us to move out into every econiche on the globe during the Upper Palaeolithic. We could call it the String Revolution.
E. J. W. Barber
You have indeed done much since the new century began to give shape and substance to the growing, the insistent desire that war may be banished from the earth.

Charles Bukowski
If all the earth were paper white / And all the sea were ink / ‘Twere not enough for me to write / As my poor heart doth think.

The music is not part of this planet in a sense that the spirit of it is about happiness. Most musicians play earth things about what they know, but I found out that they are mostly unhappy and frustrated, and that creeps over into their music.
Sun Ra
We don’t know how to live together on Earth, how the hell are we going to live together on Mars?
Jacque Fresco
Truly, God’s plan of redemption is about more than me and you and our neighbor down the street. It’s about men and women from every tribe, tongue, and nation on earth becoming a part of His covenant community.
Matt Chandler
We all arrive on Earth with a round-trip ticket.
Richard Paul Evans
Although the rudiments of snobbery are there, its finer developments are basically alien to the Australian soul – that is, if Australians have a soul; many people believe that they are too matter-of-fact and down-to-earth to have such fancy commodities.

It is just an illusion here on Earth that one moment follows another one, like beads on a string, and that once a moment is gone, it is gone forever.
Kurt Vonnegut
Climate change is and will be a significant threat to our national security and in a larger sense to life on earth as we know it to be.
Gordon R. Sullivan
The earth was cursed for Adam’s sake. Work is our blessing, not our doom. God has a work to do, and so should we.
Ezra Taft Benson
Therefore, in the course of the work I have followed this plan: I describe in the first book all the positions of the orbits together with the movements which I ascribe to the Earth, in order that this book might contain, as it were, the general scheme of the universe.
Nicolaus Copernicus
Before the boiling of blood and the searing of skin comes the secret catastrophe: Before Life on Earth becomes finally merely impossible, it will for a long time before have become completely unbearable.
Tony Kushner
Where some one else’s welfare is concerned, a young girl becomes as ingenious as a thief. Guileless where she herself is in question, and full of foresight for me,-she is like a heavenly angel forgiving the strange incomprehensible sins of earth.
Honore de Balzac
You have to be always drunk. That’s all there is to it-it’s the only way. So as not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your back and bends you to the earth, you have to be continually drunk. But on what? Wine, poetry or virtue, as you wish. But be drunk.
Charles Baudelaire
We are not a nation of immigrants. We are a nation of citizens. I am sick and tired of the American citizen being demeaned and treated as a second-class citizen while anybody who crosses the border is treated as the most virtuous human being on the face of the earth.
Mark Levin
No, I was talking to the network and Universal about plans for a third season where Buck would go back to Earth and would focus on stories around the planet and show what it was like 500 years later.
Gil Gerard
Americans believe in the value of immigration. We are the most generous nation on earth to immigrants, allowing over one million people a year to come here legally.

It is only of life on Earth, however, that one can speak with any certainty. It seems to me that all life on Earth, the sum total of life upon the Earth, has purpose.
Clifford D. Simak
Moreover, if great men are the only hope of the Evolutionary Process, they are morally bound to rule over the masses for their own good — we are all here on earth to help others: what on earth the others are here for, I don’t know — and the masses have no right whatsoever to resist them.
W. H. Auden
Diamonds are to be found only in the darkness of the earth, and truth in the darkness of the mind.
Victor Hugo
Only when I smell the earth upon my face, will I ever be free, to fly from this place.
Dawud Wharnsby Ali
There are a lot of reasons for not doing something. And if humanity had come up with all the reasons for not doing something we wouldn’t have spread across the Earth the way we have. There’s a curiosity, and I would submit that that curiosity will put human beings on the surface of Mars.
Buzz Aldrin
It is absolutely necessary, for the peace and safety of mankind, that some of earth’s dark, dead corners and unplumbed depths be left alone; lest sleeping abnormalities wake to resurgent life, and blasphemously surviving nightmares squirm and splash out of their black lairs to newer and wider conquests.
H. P. Lovecraft
If your investments are limited to this earth, you are the world’s worst investor.
John Hagee
All our other faculties seem to have the brown touch of earth upon them, but the imagination carries the very livery of heaven, and is God’s self in the soul.
Henry Ward Beecher
There’s something that’s not right or not perfect or not the way we had hoped or dreamed that it was going to be. But God promises that He will use everything and every moment to ultimately take us to a new Heaven and a new Earth. For now, we’re stuck in the middle.
Louie Giglio
Many outsiders see the art world as elitist and it is, except it is also oddly down-to-earth and embracing of oddballs who don’t fit in well anywhere else.
Sarah Thornton
We seem to think that the earth must go through the ordeal of sheep-pasturage before it is habitable by man.
Henry David Thoreau
The meanest authors have at least this similarity with the great author of heaven and earth, that they usually say after a completed day of work: “And behold, what he had done was good.
Karl Wilhelm Friedrich Schlegel
Why would anyone believe it is possible to lay down such barrage of poisons on the surface of the earth without making it unfit for all life? They should not be called insecticides, but biocides.
Rachel Carson
There is no distance on this earth as far away as yesterday.
Robert Nathan
Every time we remember to say “thank you”, we experience nothing less than heaven on earth.
Sarah Ban Breathnach
I think the Earth and everything around it is connected – the sky and the planets and the stars and everything else we see as a mystery.
Marion Cotillard
For a long time on Earth humans didn’t worship good gods; that’s a new idea. The ancient Greek gods, the Hindu gods, are fairly amoral, most of them. We get stuck when we insist that God be both good and all-powerful.
Barbara Ehrenreich
You’re an animal that needs to move across the landscape, you can’t anymore, and that’s another way we’re just changing the surface of the Earth in very dramatic ways.
Elizabeth Kolbert
You can be the most beautiful person on earth, and if you don’t have a fitness or diet routine, you won’t be beautiful.
Martha Stewart
While I do not believe the earth loaned to us by our ancestors should be plagued by chemical horrors and thereby corrupted for future generations, neither do I believe I should have to face anything that has more eyes than I have during dinner. It was my rule when I was dating and, heck, it’s still my rule now.
Gina Barreca
Those who would take over the earth and shape it to their will, never, I notice succeed.
Laozi
The literal, basic thing of the stage is really like a magnet. It brings me back to earth.
Al Pacino
I think it’s great that we have organisations like Greenpeace. In a pluralistic society, we want to have people who point out all the problems that the Earth could encounter. But we need to understand that they are not presenting a full and rounded view.
Bjorn Lomborg
Here am I, send me; send me to the ends of the earth; send me to the rough, the savage lost of the wilderness; send me from all that is called comfort on earth; send me even to death itself, if it be but in your service, and to promote your kingdom
David Brainerd
I have indeed – praise be to God – attained my desire in this world, which was to travel through the earth, and i have attained in this respect what no other person has attained to my knowledge.
Ibn Battuta
Here is the test to find whether your mission on Earth is finished: if you’re alive, it isn’t.
Richard Bach
Look at your feet. You are standing in the sky. When we think of the sky, we tend to look up, but the sky actually begins at the earth.
Diane Ackerman
All women on earth– and men, too for that matter– hope for the kind of love that transforms us, raises us up out of the everyday, & gives us the courage to survive our little deaths: the heartache of unfulfilled dreams, of career and personal disappointments, of broken love affairs.
Lisa See
What is about to come upon the earth is not just a revival, or another awakening, it is a veritable revolution. The vision was given in order to begin to awaken those who are destined to radically change the course, and even the very definition of Christianity.
Rick Joyner
Everyone is here on earth as an artist; to tell his particular story or sing her irreplaceable song; to leave a unique creative signature.
Leonard Wolf
My goal? To test out every diet and exercise regimen on planet earth and figure out which work best. I sweated, I cooked, I learned to pole dance. In the end, I lost weight, lowered my cholesterol and doubled my energy level. I feel better than I ever have.
A. J. Jacobs
We’ve stayed really normal and down to Earth I think, and haven’t let the success thing go to our head.
Ashley Olsen
The deep sea is the largest museum on earth, it contains more history than all the museums on land combined, and yet we’re only now penetrating it.
Robert Ballard
Now every mortal has pain and sweat is constant, but if there is anything dearer than being alive, it’s dark to me. We humans seem disastrously in love with this thing (whatever it is) that glitters on the earth– we call it life. We know no other. The underworld’s a blank and all the rest just fantasy.
Anne Carson
[In science any model depends on a pre-chosen taxonomy] a set of classifications into which we divide the enormous complexity of the real world… Land, labor, and capital are extremely heterogeneous aggregates, not much better than earth, air, fire, and water.
Kenneth E. Boulding
The lazy manage to keep up with the earth’s rotation just as well as the industrious.
Mason Cooley
The Lord who gave us Earth and Heaven
Takes that as thanks for all He’s given.
The book he lent is given back
All blotted red and smutted black.
John Masefield
Earth is a flower and it’s pollinating.
Neil Young
The greatest things ever done on Earth have been done little by little.
William Jennings Bryan
I like television. I still believe that television is the most powerful form of communication on Earth – I just hate what is being done with it.
Alton Brown
I will always support legalization of the entheogens, which are, without a doubt, the most important and the most grossly misunderstood medicines on earth.
Alex Grey
My first biography written in ’73 was not ‘Journey To The Moon.’ It was ‘Return To Earth.’ Because for me, that was the more difficult task – disappointment.
Buzz Aldrin
To talk, simply to talk! It sounds so little, and how much it is! When you have existed to the brink of middle age in bitter loneliness, among people to whom your true opinion on every subject on earth is blasphemy, the need to talk is the greatest of all needs.
George Orwell
She who dwells with me whom I have loved with such communion, that no place on earth can ever be solitude to me.
William Blake
Hollwood creates useful entertainment. There are millions of people on earth who need distraction and American cinema fulfills that function.
Claude Lelouch
Everything on Earth is being continuously transformed.
Paulo Coelho
I cannot imagine my hometown without forests, and I cannot imagine the earth turned into a desert.
Li Bingbing
We are coming to a place where the road ends. From here on out, we will be making the road as we walk it, in ways we’ve never had to do before. We now have the job of forging our own evolutionary destiny, and being prime agents of the process of evolution here on Earth.
Tom Atlee
And the true order of going, or being led by another, to the things of love, is to begin from the beauties of earth.
Plato
The economic function of space industrialization is to generate jobs on Earth, not in space.
Krafft Arnold Ehricke
We went to the moon and discovered Earth.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
I wanna be inside your heaven Take me to the place you cry from Where the storm blows your way I wanna be the earth that holds you Every bit of air you’re breathin’ in A soothin’ wind I wanna be inside your heaven
Carrie Underwood
Do you not weep? Other sins only speak; murder shrieks out. The element of water moistens the earth, But blood flies upwards and bedews the heavens.
John Webster
Walking around becomes actually difficult. But the walking process is the oldest natural form of movement. It puts you literally in touch with the earth and the weather around you and allows you to get into conversation with people as you move, which seldom happens in the other ways we move.
Iain Sinclair
In a sense, each of us is an island. In another sense, however, we are all one. For though islands appear separate, and may even be situated at great distances from one another, they are only extrusions of the same planet, Earth.
Goswami Kriyananda
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand.
William Blake
The planet on which we live is poorly organized, many areas are overpopulated, others are reserved for a few, technology’s potential is only in part realized, and most people are starving.
Friedrich Durrenmatt
Ask for what end the heavenly bodies shine,
Earth for whose use? Pride answers, ‘Tis for mine
For me kind nature wakes her genial power,
Suckles each herb, and spreads out every flower.
Alexander Pope
As a species, we are most animated when our days and nights on Earth are touched by the natural world. We can find immeasurable joy in the birth of a child, a great work of art, or falling in love.
Richard Louv
I’d once heard a spiritual “riddle” that went like this: “What’s the only thingin heaven that’s the same as it was on earth?”The answer: the wounds in Jesus’ hands and feet.
Todd Burpo
A happy home is the single spot of rest which a man has upon this earth for the cultivation of his noblest sensibilities.
Frederick William Robertson
In spite of difference of soil and climate, of language and manners, of laws and customs-in spite of things silently gone out of mind, and things violently destroyed, the Poet binds together by passion and knowledge the vast empire of human society, as it is spread over the whole earth, and over all time.
William Wordsworth
As we got further and further away, it [the Earth] dimished in size. Finally it shrank to the size of a marble, the most beautiful you can imagine. That beautiful, warm, living object looked so fragile, so delicate, that if you touched it with a finger it would crumble and fall apart. Seeing this has to change a man.
James Irwin
As a result of America’s efforts to realize the ideals of equality and freedom, blacks in America are now the freest and richest black people anywhere on the face of the earth including all of the nations that are ruled by blacks.
David Horowitz
Virtually nothing on earth can stop a person with a positive attitude who has his goals clearly in sight.
Denis Waitley
Everything we “know” from above [heaven], we know from down here [earth]. How can you take something like that seriously?
Steve Stevaert
Of any activity you do, ask yourself: If I were the last person on earth, would I still do it?
Steven Pressfield
Flyers fell a certain kinship with the sight of the earth unencrusted by humanity, they want to see it that way in one sweeping view, in reassurance that nature still exists on her own, without a chain-link fence to hold her.
Richard Bach
The meek may inherit the earth, but they wont get the ball from me.
Charles Barkley
[On vanity:] The nose of Cleopatra: if it had been shorter, the face of the earth would have changed.
Blaise Pascal
The world is in balance . To light a candle is to cast a shadow.
Ursula K. Le Guin
We discover a new world every time we see the earth again after it has been covered for a season with snow.
Henry David Thoreau
I love Charlize Theron. I would love to have a career like Charlize Theron. I like Charlize Theron. She strikes me as being very down to earth, very cool, in addition to being extremely talented, and I think that’s awesome.
Alexandra Daddario
Gays have always been in the military. Alexander the Great was originally Alexander the Fabulous. A gay man invented C-rations. He claims he could never talk anyone into the cilantro garnish. Obviously, gays were not allowed to design the outfits, because we never would have stayed with the earth tones for so long.
Kate Clinton
Gaddafi’s a great bloke. The media only show the bad things. I used to go round his house. His son’s a super simple guy. All the Gaddafis are very down to earth.
Luis de Agustini
For the whole earth is the tomb of famous men; not only are they commemorated by columns and inscriptions in their own country, but in foreign lands there dwells also an unwritten memorial of them, graven not on stone but in the hearts of men.
Pericles
There is nothing more important than writing well for the young, if literature is to have a continuance … They will inherit the earth; and nothing that we value will endure in the world unless they can be persuaded to value it too.
Jill Paton Walsh
Yes I have loved, as no one on earth ever loved, with an insensate and furious love, so violent that I wonder it did not break my heart
Theophile Gautier
A significant portion of the earth’s population will soon recognize, if they haven’t already done so, that humanity is now faced with a stark choice: Evolve or die.
Eckhart Tolle
The ultimate starting point for planning any adventure or expeditionby far and away the greatest book on earth
Ranulph Fiennes
Earth, the mother of all, Moves on her stedfast way, Gathering, flinging, sowing. Mortals, we live in her day, She in her children is growing.
George Meredith
It’s just natural, it’s not a great disaster. People keep talking about it like it’s The End of The Earth. It’s only a rock group that split up, it’s nothing important. You know, you have all the old records there if you want to reminisce.
John Lennon
Feel yourself grounded to the earth, while your mind is focusing on the sky of clarity.
Nawang Khechog
Limitless and immortal, the waters are the beginning and end of all things on earth.
Heinrich Zimmer
The service we render to others is really the rent we pay for our room on this earth. It is obvious that man is himself a traveler; that the purpose of this world is not ‘to have and to hold’ but “to give and serve.”
Wilfred Grenfell
Do what you really want to do. That’s why God put you on this earth.
J. Carter Brown
There’s a fundamental difference, if you sort of look into the future, between a humanity that is a space-faring civilization, that’s out there exploring the stars…compared with one where we are forever confined to Earth until some eventual extinction event.
Elon Musk
We have reached a crossroads in human evolution where the only road which leads forward is towards a common passion. . . To continue to place our hopes in a social order achieved by external violence would simply amount to our giving up all hope of carrying the Spirit of the Earth to its limits.
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
She was like a lone angel floating above the surface of the earth, laughing with delight because she could fly but crying out of loneliness.
Markus Zusak
Every time I am in danger of believing the glamour of my own press, some incident inevitably brings me back to earth.
Jessica Savitch
The only way we can determine the true age of the earth is for God to tell us what it is. And since He has told us, very plainly, in the Holy Scriptures that it is several thousand years in age, and no more, that ought to settle all basic questions of terrestrial chronology.
Henry M. Morris
Therefore a curse consumes the earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore earth’s inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.
Isaiah
The Rio Earth Summit in 1992 changed my life completely, turning me into an activist. From the air, you see things you can’t see from the ground – you really understand the impact of man, even in a place you know well. My work is meant to convince people we can no longer live like this.
Yann Arthus-Bertrand
I’d sooner exchange ideas with the birds on earth than learn to carry on intergalactic communications with some obscure race of humanoids on a satellite planet from the world of Betelgeuse.
Edward Abbey
I don’t think there’s any reason on Earth why people should have access to automatic and semiautomatic weapons unless they’re in the military or in the police.
John Howard
The relation between what we see and what we know is never settled. Each evening we see the sun set. We know that the earth is turning away from it. Yet the knowledge, the explanation, never quite fits the sight.
John Berger
Every individual was put on this earth to accomplish some purpose bigger than just making a living.
Joe Tye
Every time I see a smiling person on earth, I feel the warmth of the Sun in the sky.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
My heart found its home long ago in the beauty, mystery, order and disorder of the flowering earth. I wanted future generations to be able to savor what I had all my life.
Lady Bird Johnson
Modern science says: ‘The sun is the past, the earth is the present, the moon is the future.’ From an incandescent mass we have originated, and into a frozen mass we shall turn. Merciless is the law of nature, and rapidly and irresistibly we are drawn to our doom.
Nikola Tesla
We have lived long enough to experience the hollowness of earth and the rottenness of all carnal promises.
Charles Spurgeon
If life on Planet Earth was really supposed to be a picnic, we would all have been born clutching gingham tablecloths.
Jonathan Cainer
The earth, that is nature’s mother, is her tomb.
William Shakespeare
Man must at all costs overcome the Earth’s gravity and have, in reserve, the space at least of the Solar System.
Konstantin Tsiolkovsky
Only when I saw the Earth from space, in all its ineffable beauty and fragility, did I realize that humankind’s most urgent task is to cherish and preserve it for future generations.
Sigmund Jahn
A mystic is a man who separates heaven and earth even if he enjoys them both.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
We could never have loved the earth so well if we had had no childhood in it.
George Eliot
Because Adam, God’s deputy on earth, transfered his legal dominion to Satan, God became obligated to recognize Satan’s legal standing.
Ed Silvoso
South Africa is the most beautiful place on earth. Admittedly, I am biased but when you combine the natural beauty… and the fact that the region is a haven for Africa’s most splendid wildlife… Then I think that we have been blessed with a truly wonderful land.
Nelson Mandela
To become a singer requires work, work, and again, work! It need not be in any special corner of the earth; there is no one spot that will do more for you than other places. It doesn’t matter so much where you are if you have intelligence and a good ear.
Enrico Caruso
You, quote, find your voice, unquote, when you are able to invent this one character who resembles you, obviously, and probably is more like you than anyone else on earth, but is not the equivalent to you.
Billy Collins
And the smile that is worth the praises of earth is the smile that shines through tears.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
There were no pre-adamic men in the line of Adam… I am not a scientist. I do not profess to know anything but Jesus Christ, and him crucified, and the principles of his gospel. If, however, there are some things in the strata of the earth indicating there were men before Adam, they were not the ancestors of Adam.
Marion G. Romney
Rock ‘n roll smells phony and false. It is sung, played and written for the most part by cretinous goons and by means of its almost imbecilic reiteration and sly, lewd, in plain fact, dirty lyrics … manages to be the martial music of every side-burned delinquent on the face of the earth.
Frank Sinatra
The first question concerning the Celestial Bodies is whether there be a system, that is whether the world or universe compose together one globe, with a center, or whether the particular globes of earth and stars be scattered dispersedly, each on its own roots, without any system or common center.
Francis Bacon
I have sat here happy in the gardens, Watching the still pool and the reeds And the dark clouds. . . . But though I greatly delight In these and the water lilies, That which sets me nighest to weeping Is the rose and white colour of the smooth flag-stones, And the pale yellow grasses Among them.
Richard Aldington
How can any woman believe that a loving and merciful God would, in one breath, command Eve to multiply and replenish the earth, and in the next, pronounce a curse upon her maternity? I do not believe that God inspired the Mosaic code, or gave out the laws about women which he is accused of doing.
Elizabeth Cady Stanton
Ultimately, tragedy on earth can only be understood rightly from the perspective of heaven.
David Platt
And yet, even as she spoke, she knew that she did not wish to come back. not to stay, not to live. She loved the little yellow cottage more than she loved any place on earth. but she was through with it except in her memories.
Maud Hart Lovelace
Face it, you hate every single boy on the face of the Earth!” “That’s not TRUE, I just hate all these obnoxious, extroverted, pseudo-bohemian art-school losers
Daniel Clowes
There is a sweet little horror story that is only two sentences long: The last man on Earth sat alone in a room. There was a knock at the door… Two sentences and an ellipsis of three dots.
Fredric Brown
I could believe only in the hell I was living in, a hell on earth, and it was man-made, not God-made.
Michael Morpurgo
What once sprung from the earth sinks back into the earth.
Lucretius
All sound heard at the greatest possible distance produces one and the same effect, a vibration of the universal lyre, just as the intervening atmosphere makes a distant ridge of earth interesting to our eyes by the azure tint it imparts to it.
Henry David Thoreau
Let the meek inherit the earth — they have it coming to them.
James Thurber
Nobody knows how long you’re going to have life on Earth, so you really have to work at being joyous and happy.
Molly Shannon
I always prayed that God would give me the wisdom and the vision to do the things on this earth that I was supposed to do to express His life and love and His will.
Billy Ray Cyrus
Madame Lily Devalier always asked “Where are you?” in a way that insinuated that there were only two places on earth one could be: New Orleans and somewhere ridiculous.
Tom Robbins
When I was in the White House, I was confronted with the challenge of the Cold War. Both the Soviet Union and I had 30,000 nuclear weapons that could destroy the entire earth and I had to maintain the peace.
Jimmy Carter
Zorba is beautiful, but something is missing. The earth is his, but the heaven is missing. He is earthly, rooted, like a giant cedar, but he has no wings. He cannot fly into the sky. He has roots but no wings.
Rajneesh
God has sent no one to this earth purposeless.
Karen Wheaton
No single man can be taken as a model for a perfect figure, for no man lives on earth who is endowed with the whole of beauty.
Albrecht Durer
The true Southern watermelon is a boon apart, and not to be mentioned with commoner things. It is chief of this world’d luxuries, king by grace of God over all the fruits of the earth. When one has tasted it, he knows what the angels eat. It was not a Southern watermelon that Eve took: we know it because she repented.
Mark Twain
All things are connected. Whatever befalls the Earth, befalls the children of the Earth.
Chief Seattle
Life is so full of meaning and of purpose, so full of beauty – beneath its covering – that you will find that earth but cloaks your heaven. Courage, then to claim it: that is all!
Giovanni Giocondo
Gravity is a mutual affection between cognate bodies towards union or conjunction (similar in kind to the magnetic virtue), so that the earth attracts a stone much rather than the stone seeks the earth.
Johannes Kepler
If there is one place on the face of earth where all the dreams of living men have found a home from the very earliest days when man began the dream of existence, it is India.
Romain Rolland
All works of nature created by God in heaven and on earth are works of sculpture.
Benvenuto Cellini
You think so logically… like a hawk soaring – I feel so chaotically… like a kite without a tail plummeting to earth.
John J. Geddes
If princes and kings could follow it (Tao), all things would by themselves abide, Heaven and Earth would unite and sweet dew would fall. People would by themselves find harmony, without being commanded.
Laozi
The development of the telescope, together with increased knowledge of things, brought men to see that the earth is not what man had once thought it to be.
Joseph Franklin Rutherford
When you realize that every breath is a gift from God. When you realize how small you are, but how much he loved you. That he, Jesus, would die, the son of God himself on earth, then you…you just weep.
Angela Bassett
My dream is to see the day when nuclear weapons will be banished from the face of the Earth.
Ronald Reagan
Science is triumphant with far-ranging success, but its triumph is somehow clouded by growing difficulties in providing for the simple necessities of human life on earth.
Barry Commoner
If you travel the earth, you will find it is largely divided into two classes of people-people who say ‘I wonder why such and such is not done” and people who say “Now who is going to prevent me from doing that thing?”
Winston Churchill
Even the people who come our way look upon us in amazement, that we run only for the healing of Mother Earth.
Dennis Banks
Be such a man, and live such a life, that if every man were such as you, and every life a life like yours, this earth would be God’s Paradise.
Phillips Brooks
Who do you suppose invented computers? Speaking in terms relevant to you, in terms of earth history, let alone other worldly history, the computer, of course, came from Atlantis.
Frederick Lenz
I am here on Earth to express myself, and the many media of art are my magic carpets that allow me the freedom to do so.
Brandon Boyd
The only amaranthine flower on earth is virtue; the only lasting treasure, truth.
William Cowper
From every spot on earth we are equally near heaven and the infinite.
Henri Frederic Amiel
You can see a lot about our mission on our website, but the basic idea is that the church believes that understanding human beings and the Earth requires not only faith but also reason, and not only philosophical reason but also scientific reason.
Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo
Joe Louis, to me, was the finest human being God put on this earth in every way.
Angelo Dundee
Earth is a living entity. And if it’s a living organism, then we have to have a reverence for all life. Food should be local, organic rather than grown with chemical fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides.
Satish Kumar
Planet Earth, gentle and blue With all my heart, I love you. Dancing the Dream by Michael Jackson
Michael Jackson
During my long investigation of these strange objects, I have seen many reports verified by Air Force Intelligence, detailed accounts by Air Force pilots, radar operators, and other trained observers proving the UFOs are high-speed craft superior to anything built on Earth.
Donald Keyhoe
Water becomes clear and transparent when in a quiescent stage. How much the more wonderful will be the mind of a sage when poised in quiescence! It is the mirror of heaven and earth, reflecting the ten thousand things.
Zhuangzi
O God of earth and altar,
Bow down and hear our cry,
Our earthly rulers falter,
Our people drift and die;
The walls of gold entomb us,
The swords of scorn divide,
Take not thy thunder from us,
But take away our pride.
Gilbert K. Chesterton
It is obvious that while science is struggling to bring Heaven to earth some men are using its materials in the construction of Hell.
Herbert Hoover
I must have been one of the least surprised people on earth on September 11. I felt very braced for that. I knew something like that was going to come.
Christopher Hitchens
Socrates said that, from above, the Earth looks like one of those twelve-patched leathern balls.
Plato
In truth, we are the only developed country on earth with a constitution that recognizes the God-given right to keep and bear arms, and the human right of individual armed defense of self, family, home and country.
Wayne LaPierre
Mining asteroids will ultimately benefit humanity on and off the Earth in a multitude of ways.
Peter Diamandis
Tonight, darling, we are going to right a lot of wrongs. And we are going to wrong some rights. The first shall be last; the last shall be first; the meek shall do some earth-inheriting. But before we can radically reshape the world, we need to shop.
John Green
I have continued systematically to study the Book of Mormon and Bible to understand even more deeply what God expects of me and my family while on this earth.
Clayton Christensen
You might find it hard to imagine gravity as a weak force, but consider that a small magnet can hold up a paper clip, even though the entire earth is pulling down on it.
Lisa Randall
Burgundy was the winiest wine, the central, essential, and typical wine, the soul and greatest common measure of all the kindly wines of the earth.
Charles Edward Montague
And that the best things that grownups do, we do for the children, and that they inspire great good in us. I also want them to remember that the world is intertwined and that we therefore have to be gentle in the way that we treat one another and the Earth, so that our impact on others is benevolent and good.
Maya Soetoro-Ng
We came all this way to explore the moon, and the most important thing is that we discovered the Earth.
William Anders
Jesus, when he was on Earth, he was out there helping people, right? Why did he perform those miracles? To call attention to his profession. Why do you think I do these incredible feats? To call attention to my profession!
Jack LaLanne
We think the whole world’s going to change, and forget that human beings are still human beings; we have the same five senses, we still interact the same way, we still love and hate the same way, but marketers lose track of that. But then it comes down to earth.
Michael K. Powell
The UK is one of the only nations on earth that has actually met and even exceeded its goals under the Kyoto Protocol.
Al Gore
Earth laughs in flowers.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You need a village, if only for the pleasure of leaving it. A village means that you are not alone, knowing that in the people, the trees, the earth, there is something that belongs to you, waiting for you when you are not there.
Cesare Pavese

Tony Robbins
You’d have to be deaf, dumb, and blind to think that this earth that we live in only has 6000 years of existence. It just doesn’t.
Pat Robertson
Religion has ever been anti-human, anti-woman, anti-life, anti-peace, anti-reason and anti-science. The god idea has been detrimental not only to humankind but to the earth. It is time now for reason, education and science to take over.
Madalyn Murray O’Hair
Maybe life on earth could be heaven, doesn’t just the thought of it make it worth a try?
Bo Burnham
It is not through the way in which someone speaks about God that I can see whether that person has passed through the crucible of Divine Love, but through the way the person speaks to me about things here on earth.
Simone Weil
The river is of the earth and it is free. It is rigorously embanked and bound, and yet it is free. To hell with restraint, it says, I have got to be going. It will grind out its dams. It will go over or around them. They will become pieces.
Wendell Berry
I approach my music-making as an art-form–something pure from the spirit to which I can add dynamics and marketable reality. Music is genuine and healthy and the stimulation I get from molding it and adding dynamics is like nothing else on earth.
Brian Wilson
The resurrection of Christ is one of the foundation stones of Christianity. It was the seal of the great work that He came on earth to do. It was the crowning proof that the ransom He paid for sinners was accepted, the atonement for sin accomplished, the head of him who had the power of death bruised, and the victory won.
J. C. Ryle
We live in the world when we love it.
Rabindranath Tagore
There are only two distinct classes of people on this earth, those who espouse enthusiasm and those who despise it.

I think – you know, I’m a guy that – I don’t live on the earth just to walk it. I live on here to make a difference.
Tracy McGrady
This blessГЁd plot, this earth, this realm, this England
This nurse, this teeming womb of royal kings,
. . .
This land of such dear souls, this dear dear land.
William Shakespeare
Meanwhile, some people are dying of sad laughter at the absurdity of man, who kills so easily and so violently, and once a year sends out cards praying for “Peace on Earth.”
David C. Coates
The child is born speaking the languages of birds; the child has horns and scales and wings; it has a beak; it has a cloven hoof. He is the sum of all creatures: the ones that swim, the ones that soar, the ones that leap, the ones that maze the earth with burrows.
Rikki Ducornet
I can’t be bothered to go to the gym, though. I honestly just can’t be bothered – it’s the most boring thing on Earth. I have tried and every six months I go ‘right, I’m going to the gym’. Then I do it for two weeks and get so bored by it.
Carol Vorderman
Lo! now the direful monster, whose skin clings
To his strong bones, strides o’er the groaning rocks:
He withers all in silence, and his hand
Unclothes the earth, and freezes up frail life.
William Blake
Don’t try to get all your rewards on earth. There are more rewards in Heaven.
Bo Sanchez
The precise location of heaven on earth has never been established but it may very well be right here
Herb Caen
The message is not so much that the worms will inherit the Earth, but that all things play a role in nature, even the lowly worm.
Gary Larson
A tree that can fill the span of a man’s arms grows from a downy tip; A terrace nine stories high rises from level earth; A journey of a thousand miles starts from beneath one’s feet.
Laozi
Every nation, every human being that came across earth had a song and sang in some way to their God.
Thomas A. Dorsey
As you grow up, always tell the truth, do no harm to others, and don’t think you are the most important being on earth. Rich or poor, you then can look anyone in the eye and say, ‘I’m probably no better than you, but I’m certainly your equal.
Harper Lee
The press has always written that I am a recluse and a mysterious woman, but I am more down-to-earth than they think.
Agnetha Faltskog
Fall in love so madly that every leaf whispers words of love to your lover. Every raindrop explodes with only one word as it hits the Earth.
Shekhar Kapur
We have the greatest people on Earth in our military. We don’t take care of our veterans.
Donald Trump
Music is in all growing things; And underneath the silky wings Of smallest insects there is stirred A pulse of air that must be heard; Earth’s silence lives, and throbs, and sings.
George Parsons Lathrop
You have been walking the ocean’s edge, holding up your robes to keep them dry. You must dive naked under and deeper under, a thousand times deeper. Love flows down. The ground submits to the sky and suffers what comes. Tell me, is the earth worse for giving in like that? Do not put blankets over the drum. Open completely.
Rumi
Man is like a tree, with the mighty trunk of intellect, the spreading branches of imagination, and the roots of the lower instincts that bind him to the earth. The moral life, however, is the fruit he bears; in it his true nature is revealed.
Felix Adler
Man makes a great fuss about this planet which is only a ballbearing in the hub of the universe.
Christopher Morley
To see the earth as we now see it, small and beautiful in that eternal silence where it floats, is to see ourselves as riders on the earth together, brothers on that bright loveliness in the unending night ~ brothers who see now they are truly brothers.
Archibald MacLeish
Sssh says the ocean
Sssh says the small wave at the shore
sssh not so violent, not so proud, not so remarkable.
Sssh says the surf crowding around the outcrops, washing the shore.
Sssh, they say to people, this is our Earth, our eternity.
Rolf Jacobsen
Green is my favorite. And it’s my favorite because it’s the color of my wife’s eyes, grass, trees, life, and money, and mother earth!
Casper Van Dien
The cold passed reluctantly from the earth, and the retiring fogs revealed an army stretched out on the hills, resting. As the landscape changed from brown to green, the army awakened, and began to tremble with eagerness at the noise of rumors.
Stephen Crane
In Wicca, rituals are ceremonies which celebrate and strengthen our relationships with the Goddess, the God and the Earth.
Scott Cunningham
When I was young, I kissed my first woman and smoked my first cigarette on the same day. Believe me, never since have IВ  wasted any more time on tobacco.”“After I die I shall return to earth as the doorkeeper of a bordello and I won’t let a oneВ of you in.
Arturo Toscanini
We are the salt of the earth, mind you, not the sugar. Our ministry is to truly cleanse and not just to change the taste.
Vance Havner
The existence of nuclear weapons presents a clear and present danger to life on Earth.
Oscar Arias
some people meet the way the sky meets the earth, inevitably, and there is no stopping or holding back their love. It exists in a finished world, beyond the reach of common sense.
Louise Erdrich
It’s important that we attempt to extend life beyond Earth now. It is the first time in the four billion-year history of Earth that it’s been possible, and that window could be open for a long time – hopefully it is – or it could be open for a short time. We should err on the side of caution and do something now.
Elon Musk
If they drive God from the earth, we shall shelter Him underground.
Fyodor Dostoevsky
In theory one is aware that the earth revolves, but in practice one does not perceive it, the ground upon which one treads seems not to move, and one can live undisturbed. So it is with Time in one’s life.
Marcel Proust
There is nothing on this earth more to be prized than true friendship.
Thomas Aquinas
My earliest memory is a picnic in the park near our house, which was next to Wimbledon Common. Why on earth we went to a park when we lived so near the common is a mystery, but it had formal gardens and lawns – perhaps it was that very difference that took my parents there.
Martin Clunes
If our solar system is not unusual, then there are so many planets in the universe that, for example, they outnumber the sum of all sounds and words ever uttered by every human who has ever lived. To declare that Earth must be the only planet with life in the universe would be inexcusably bigheaded of us.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
… the open sky sits upon our senses like a sapphire crown – the Air is our robe of state – the Earth is our throne, and the Sea a mighty minstrel playing before it.
John Keats
It is the Christmas time:
And up and down ‘twixt heaven and earth,
In glorious grief and solemn mirth,
The shining angels climb.
Dinah Maria Murlock Craik
In closing, the greatest threat to peace on this earth is the arrogance of a super-power [America] that is out of control.
Louis Farrakhan
Many pass for saints on earth whose souls are in hell.
Martin Luther
When the space shuttle’s engines cut off, and you’re finally in space, in orbit, weightless… I remember unstrapping from my seat, floating over to the window, and that’s when I got my first view of Earth. Just a spectacular view, and a chance to see our planet as a planet.
Sally Ride
The last thing on earth I wanted was to make a Bond movie.
Daniel Craig
Since thou wouldst needs, bewitched with some ill charms, Be buried in those monumental arms: As we can wish, is, may that earth lie light Upon thy tender limbs, and so good night.
Edmund Waller
If you’re a child of God, you do not just “go around once” on Earth. You don’t get just one earthly life. You get another-one far better and without end. You’ll inhabit the New Earth! You’ll live with the God you cherish and the people you love as an undying person on an undying Earth.
Randy Alcorn
This, however, is a passing nightmare; in time the earth will become again incapable of supporting life, and peace will return.
Bertrand Russell
As long as we have deaf people on earth, we will have signs. And as long as we have our films, we can preserve signs in their old purity. It is my hope that we will all love and guard our beautiful sign language as the noblest gift God has given to deaf people.
George Veditz
We still refer to sunrise, sunset. That only has meaning if you think that Earth is in the center of things, and everything is moving around us. So even though we know intellectually Earth goes around the sun, the language is still pre-Copernican, as we would call it.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
It seems to me that there must be an ecological limit to the number of paper pushers the earth can sustain, and that human civilization will collapse when the number of, say, tax lawyers exceeds the world’s total population of farmers, weavers, fisherpersons, and pediatric nurses.
Barbara Ehrenreich
Fools that will laugh on earth, most weep in hell.
Christopher Marlowe
Power is not brute force and money; power is in your spirit. Power is in your soul. It is what your ancestors, your old people gave you. Power is in the earth; it is in your relationship to the earth.
Winona LaDuke
The new course we’re on at Interface … is to pioneer the next Industrial Revolution: one that is kinder and gentler to the earth.
Ray Anderson
There is no other way the world is going to see the supreme glory of Christ today, except that we break free from the Disneyland of America and begin to live lifestyles of missionary sacrifice that looks to the world like our treasure is in heaven and not on the earth.
John Piper
In one sense there is no death. The life of a soul on earth lasts beyond departure. You will always feel that life touching yours, that voice speaking to you. He/She lives on in your life and in the lives of all others that knew him/her.
Angelo Patri
Earth’s sweat, the sea.
Empedocles
We have been given the privilege and responsibility of living on Earth to see it isn’t ruined.
Allen Johnson
Dogs change lives. Half Buddha, half Bozo, they keep us tethered to the earth, and teach us to fly. Our dogs are our sanity keepers.
Pam Houston
The pain of powerlessness is excruciating. It is the most painful experience in the earth school, and everyone shares it.
Gary Zukav
The earth is literally our mother, not only because we depend on her for nurture and shelter but even more because the human sepcies has been shaped by her in the womb of evolution. Our salvation depends upon our ability to create a religion of nature.
Rene Dubos
Christianity did not come with tidings of great joy, but with a message of eternal grief. It came with the threat of everlasting torture on its lips. It meant war on earth and perdition hereafter.
Robert Green Ingersoll
In thus sending out his trainees, [Jesus] set afoot a perpetual world revolution: one that is still in process and will continue until God’s will is done on earth as it is in heaven…. He has chosen to accomplish this with and, in part, through his students.
Dallas Willard
“In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth…” Whatever our speculations may be in regard to a “beginning,” and when it was, it is written in the rocks that, like the animals and plants upon its surface, the earth itself grew.
Elisha Gray
The Yankee: In acuteness and perseverance, he resembles the Scotch. In frugal
neatness, he resembles the Dutch. But in truth, a Yankee is nothing else on earth
but himself.
Frances Trollope
But the revolutions and changes which are responsible for the present state of the earth are not limited to the upsetting of the ancient strata and to the ebbing of the sea after the formations of new layers.
Georges Cuvier
I’m not going into infinity. I’m going into low earth orbit.
Helen Sharman
The Earth needs rebels!
David Icke
The moon hung over the planet Earth, a dead thing over a dying thing.
John Fowles
By day the banished sun circles the earth like a grieving mother with a lamp.
Cormac McCarthy
Mourn not for the vanished ages with their grand, heroic men, who dwell in history’s pages and live in the poets pen for the grandest times are before us and the world is yet to see the noblest work of this old earth in the men that are to be.
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
I was put on earth to make people laugh.
Art Buchwald
All the nations of the earth must learn to live together in peace. Why be prejudiced against anyone because of their race, nationality, or creed? When there’s so many real reasons to hate others.
Emo Philips
Time,” the Captain said, “is not what you think.” He sat down next to Eddie. “Dying? Not the end of everything. We think it is. But what happens on earth is only the beginning.
Mitch Albom
Some of the greatest minds on earth also have a great capacity to remember. Many would prefer to forget their memories of mankind.
Anthony Douglas
(Title: To the Moon) Art thou pale for weariness Of climbing heaven, and gazing on the earth, Wandering companionless Among the stars that have a different birth,– And ever-changing, like a joyless eye That finds no object worth its constancy?
Percy Bysshe Shelley
We are in the twilight of this earth. The societies and civilizations of human beings will not endure much longer because of their abuses of power.
Frederick Lenz
The notion of a thing, materiality, was something that I think was something very in peoples’ minds when they were dealing with earth and metal and different kinds of metals and the interaction of different sorts of material.
Robert Barry
Even if the most ethical people were elected to high position and we ran out of resources, there would still be lying, cheating, stealing, and corruption. It is not ethical people that are needed but rather a way of intelligently managing the Earth’s resources for everyone’s well-being.
Jacque Fresco
Being a down-to-earth type of individual, I feel like I can connect with people on a different level, versus the GOD-like pedestal that people tend to put us on.
Michael Clayton
The most precious contribution we can make here on Earth is to create the lives we want to be living, communicating in all ways, to everyone around us, that success is really possible.
Susan Collins
You work that you may keep peace with the earth and the soul of the earth.
Khalil Gibran
I don’t s’pose anybody on earth likes gingerbread better’n I do-and gets less’n I do.
Abraham Lincoln
Microsoft is already the most powerful company on earth but you ain’t seen nothing yet.
Larry Ellison
There is no more terrible woe upon earth than the woe of the stricken brain, which remembers the days of its strength, the living light of its reason, the sunrise of its proud intelligence, and knows that these have passed away like a tale that is told.
Ouida
No one on earth is allowed to question my business decisions.
Assem Allam
Astrologys a moving system that depends on where youre looking at it from on Earth. My horoscope here in London would be completely different to down in New Zealand.
Eleanor Catton
The Earth is beautiful, and bright, and kindly, but that is not all. The Earth is also terrible, and dark, and cruel. The rabbit shrieks dying in the green meadows. The mountains clench their great hands full of hidden fire. There are sharks in the sea, and there is cruelty in men’s eyes.
Ursula K. Le Guin
Work is the rent you pay for the room you occupy on earth.
Queen Elizabeth II
The most incomprehensible thing about the world is that it is comprehensible.
Albert Einstein
The service we render others is the rent we pay for our room on earth.
Wilfred Grenfell
It was not meant that the soul should cultivate the earth, but that the earth should educate and maintain the soul.
Margaret Fuller
We know what works: freedom works. We know what’s right: freedom is right. We know how to secure a more and just and prosperous life for man on earth: through free markets, free speech, free elections and the exercise of free will unhampered by the state.
George H. W. Bush
Businessmen, they drink my wine, plowmen dig my earth.
None of them along the line know what any of it is worth.
Bob Dylan
We only have one earth. Let’s take care of it.
Deb Haaland
So why don’t we make ourselves the last generation on earth? If we would all agree to have ourselves sterilized then no sacrifices would be required – we could party our way into extinction!
Peter Singer
The abuse of women and girls is the most pervasive and unaddressed human right violation on earth.
Jimmy Carter
Under Bernie Sanders, Western workers would definitely do much better, but the rest of the world, the “wretched of the Earth” would still have to pay the bill.
Andre Vltchek
In general, the bigger a mountain the older it is. The biggest mountains were built before any others, because when they were built there was incomparably more flammable material within the Earth. Over the many thousands of years that have passed, the quantity of flammable material has doubtless decreased.
Mikhail Lomonosov
The greening of the desert means sowing seeds in people’s hearts and creating a green paradise of peace on earth.
Masanobu Fukuoka
The Art of Peace is based on four Great Virtues: Bravery, Wisdom, Love, and Friendship, symbolized by Fire, Heaven, Earth, and Water.
Morihei Ueshiba
I’d like to be the next president of the United States to support and help this great nation and to make sure that we all together remain America as the hope of the earth.
Mitt Romney
FIGHT FOR THE EARTH: The earth can’t speak for itself, it will just slowly die if we don’t fight for it.
Hazel Hawke
It boggles my mind that someone can see life breathed into a baby, watch the grass die and then come to life again, see leaves fall and watch the rebirth of a tree, or gaze on any of the majestic splendor that is this earth and not be overpowered by the presence of an Almighty God!
Bill McCartney
Most people die at the last minute; others twenty years beforehand, some even earlier. They are the wretched of the earth.
Louis-Ferdinand Celine
I am here tracing the History of the Earth itself, from its own Monuments.
Jean-Andre Deluc
There is only one heaven, one earth and one queen (me) Queen Elizabeth is an impostor.
Dinah Washington
We can’t share the earth with pure evil anymore than we can share the earth with smallpox.
David Gelernter
The physical fabric of the world had to be such as to enable that ten billion year preliminary evolution to produce the raw materials of life. Without it there would not have been the chemical materials to allow life to evolve here on earth.
John Polkinghorne
There is a natural greenhouse effect that contributes to warming. Greenhouse gases trap heat and thus warm the Earth because they prevent a significant portion of infrared radiation from escaping into space.
George W. Bush
I’ll wager at the end a body realizes the Lord has already shown Himself. That things as they are — her hand circles in a gesture that gathers clouds and kites and grass and Queenie pawing earth over her bone – just what they’ve always seen, was seeing Him. As for me, I could leave the world with today in my eyes.
Truman Capote
There seems to be a kind of order in the universe…in the movement of the stars and the turning of the Earth and the changing of the seasons. But human life is almost pure chaos. Everyone takes his stance, asserts his own right and feelings, mistaking the motives of others, and his own.
Katherine Anne Porter
Everywhere resoundeth the voices of those who preach death; and the earth is full of those to whom death hath to be preached.
Friedrich Nietzsche
When wireless is fully applied the earth will be converted into a huge brain, capable of response in every one of its parts.
Nikola Tesla
When I was a student almost nobody thought there was any life beyond Earth. Today it’s fashionable to say that there is life all over the place, that the universe is teeming with it, but the scientific facts on the ground haven’t really changed.
Paul Davies
History has become more important than ever because of the to unprecedented ability of the historical sciences to take in man’s life on earth as a whole.
Alfred Kazin
We have a responsibility to Mother Earth to protect it as much as possible.
Wes Studi
When you sell a man a book you don’t sell just twelve ounces of paper and ink and glue – you sell him a whole new life. Love and friendship and humour and ships at sea by night – there’s all heaven and earth in a book, a real book.
Christopher Morley
The very center of your heart is where life begins. The most beautiful place on earth.
Rumi
You have to be a bastard to make it, and that’s a fact. And the Beatles are the biggest bastards on earth.
John Lennon
During the age Atlantis, there were only several hundred thousand people living on our planet. They lived in a sublime state of harmony with nature. At that time, because of the purity of the earth’s aura, it was much easier to meditate.
Frederick Lenz
Every living being on earth loves life above all else. The smallest insect, whose life lasts only an instant, tries to escape from any danger in order to live a moment longer. And the desire to live is most developed in man.
Hazrat Inayat Khan
We often say that the earth is a sphere, but to be precise, the term sphere refers only to the surface. The correct mathematical term for the solid earth is a ball.
Leonard Susskind
Poetry is one of the ancient arts, and it began as did all the fine arts, within the original wilderness of the earth.
Mary Oliver
The disciples are drawn to the high altars with magnetic certainty, knowing that a great Presence hovers over the ranges … You were within the portals of the temple … to enter the wilderness and seek, in the primal patterns of nature, a magical union with beauty.
Ansel Adams
Forces of light on earth shall overcome the force of darkness. Complete spiritual enlightenment on earth will occur.
Edgar Cayce
If we only understood that when we devote our lives to the glory of God, our existence on planet earth will leave marks—eternal marks.
Beth Moore
There are no people on earth in whom a spirit of enthusiastic zeal is so readily kindled, and burns so remarkably, as Americans
David McCullough
Christ the Lord is risen to-day, Sons of men and angels say. Raise your joys and triumphs high; Sing, ye heavens, and earth reply.
Charles Wesley
There is no greater power in Heaven or on Earth than pure, unconditional love. The nature of the God force, the unseen intelligence in all things, which causes the material world and is the center of both the spiritual and physical plane, is best described as pure, unconditional love.
Wayne Dyer
I’m going to fight to make sure every American has every reason to thank God, as I thank Him: that I’m an American, a proud citizen of the greatest country on earth, and with hard work, strong faith and a little courage, great things are always within our reach.
Sarah Palin
Apparently when we enter the Earth existence, the third dimensional reality, we exist with a façade as actors playing various roles. For some it is the adventure of the experience, the journey. For others it is entrapment in an illusion that takes on all the qualities of reality.
Dolores Cannon
If you want to be reminded of the love of the Lord, just watch the sunrise.
Jeannette Walls
When we give our lives to Jesus Christ, the things of earth grow strangely dim. The values of eternity grow increasingly bright.
David Jeremiah
Seek to learn on earth those truths which will remain ever valid in Heaven
St. Jerome
You don’t see any borders between countries from space. That’s man-made, and one experiences it only when you return to Earth.
Sunita Williams
Day-colored wine, night-colored wine, wine with purple feet or wine with topaz blood, wine, starry child of earth.
Pablo Neruda
There is nothing alive more agonized than man / of all that breathe and crawl across the earth.
Homer
To stay in one place and watch the seasons come and go is tanatmount to constant travel: One is traveling with the earth.
Marguerite Yourcenar
Sorrows, as storms, bring down the clouds close to the earth; sorrows bring heaven down close; and they are instruments of cleansing and purifying.
Henry Ward Beecher
Love is bitter and all there is, and that the rest is for the emotional beggars of the earth.
Zelda Fitzgerald
Man’s own youth is the world’s youth; at least he feels as if it were, and imagines that the earth’s granite substance is something not yet hardened, and which he can mould into whatever shape he likes.
Nathaniel Hawthorne
The whole earth is a living icon of the face of God.
John of Damascus
Each man is always in the middle of the surface of the earth and under the zenith of his own hemisphere, and over the centre of the earth.
Leonardo da Vinci
According to the Bible, God created the heavens and the Earth. It is man’s prerogative – and woman’s – to create their own particular and private hell.
Rod Serling
Sing, seraph with the glory! heaven is high.
Sing, poet with the sorrow! earth is low.
The universe’s inward voices cry
“Amen” to either song of joy and woe.
Sing, seraph, poet! sing on equally!
Elizabeth Barrett Browning
I still don’t understand anything- exept that somehow I know that You are love. And that in my heart has been so great a love for Christy as I did not know could exist on this earth. You, God, must be responsible. You must have put it there. So what do I do with it now?
Catherine Marshall
Love is the most powerful weapon on the face of the earth.
Prince Ea
One-fourth of humanity must be eliminated from the social body. We are in charge of God’s selection process for planet Earth. He selects, we destroy. We are the riders of the pale horse, Death.
Barbara Marx Hubbard
But for what purpose was the earth formed?” asked Candide. “To drive us mad,” replied Martin.
Voltaire
Goat cheese… produced a bizarre eating era when sensible people insisted that this miserable cheese produced by these miserable creatures reared on miserable hardscrabble earth was actually superior to the magnificent creamy cheeses of the noblest dairy animals bred in the richest green valleys of the earth.
Russell Baker
They did that little thing on South Park, and they mentioned my name and had a character of me judging a Halloween contest. It was really funny. That made me the coolest aunt on earth.
Tina Yothers
The last thing I want to turn into is a fat Hollywood jerk. I was brought up without much money and I was happy. I don’t think that I will strive for money or success and end up greedy or big-headed. That only leads to unhappiness. I can still be down-to-earth and do this job as long as I enjoy it.
Leonardo DiCaprio
Hope is a powerful weapon, and (one) no one power on earth can deprive you of.
Nelson Mandela
Many people can listen to their cat more intelligently than they can listen to their own despised body. Because they attend to their pet in a cherishing way, it returns their love. Their body, however, may have to let out an earth-shattering scream in order to be heard at all.
Marion Woodman
Men nowhere, east or west, live yet a natural life, round which the vine clings, and which the elm willingly shadows. Man would desecrate it by his touch, and so the beauty of the world remains veiled to him. He needs not only to be spiritualized, but naturalized, on the soil of earth.
Henry David Thoreau
If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water.
Loren Eiseley
Shall I tell you the law of God in regard to the African race? If the white man who belongs to the chosen seed mixes his blood with the seed of Cain, the penalty, under the law of God, is death on the spot. This will always be so.
Brigham Young
Earth and heaven are in us
Mahatma Gandhi
In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free – honorable alike in that we give and what we preserve. We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of earth.
Abraham Lincoln
The real wealth of the Nation lies in the resources of the earth – soil, water, forests, minerals, and wildlife.

Joseph Campbell
What on earth can you do on this earth but catch at whatever comes near you, with both your fingers, until your fingers are broken?
Tennessee Williams
We will either defend the rights of people and the earth, and for that we have to dismantle the rights that corporations have assigned to themselves, or corporations will in the next three decades destroy this planet, in terms of human possibilities.
Vandana Shiva
Scientists have theorized that when Earth comes to its final days, the only life left on the planet would be in the form of microbes.
Brad Steiger
Let the creatures other than man also breathe freely. Remember that earth belongs to all the creatures living in this planet.
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Jesus’ death was seen by Jesus himself … as the ultimate means by which God’s kingdom was established. The crucifixion was the shocking answer to the prayer that God’s kingdom would come on earth as in heaven.
N. T. Wright
I closed my eyes and listened carefully for the descendants of Sputnik, even now circling the earth, gravity their only tie to the planet. Lonely metal souls in the unimpeded darkness of space, they meet, pass each other, and part, never to meet again. No words passing between them. No promises to keep.
Haruki Murakami
It wont be long now it wont be long man is making deserts of the earth it wont be long now before man will have used it up so that nothing but ants and centipedes and scorpions can find a living on it.
Don Marquis
Personally, I do not know whether humankind is alone in this vast universe. But I do know that we should cherish our existence on this precious speck of matter… the greatest gift that could be bestowed upon us. For all practical purposes, there is only one planet Earth.
Ban Ki-moon
Scotland: That garret of the earth – that knuckle-end of England – that land of Calvin, oatcakes, and sulfur.
Sydney Smith
My god will wipe this country (America) from the face of the earth.
Louis Farrakhan
Prayer is not getting man’s will done in heaven, but getting God’s will done on earth. It is not overcoming God’s reluctance but laying hold of God’s willingness.
Richard Chenevix Trench
We do not live on the Earth, we are a part of how the Earth lives.
David Richo
We sing a little song before we eat, a little blessing before we eat, and it’s really – we’re thanking the Lord and the Earth for the food that we eat, and it really brings you together in a profound kind of way.
Phil Lesh
Humans may be the only creatures on Earth who spend significant time thinking about the fact that someday their lives will end.
Joan D. Vinge

Wubbo Ockels
Heaven does without doing through its purity, Earth does without doing through its calmness.
Zhuangzi
Faith is not faith which is not tried.
Katharina Zell
My job in space will be to observe and write a journal. I am also going to be teaching a class for students on earth about life in space and on the space shuttle and conducting experiments.
Christa McAuliffe
When I am in the country, I wish to vegetate like the country.
William Hazlitt
When you understand what you see, you will no longer be children. You will know that life is pain, that each of us hangs always upon the cross of himself. And when you know that this is true of every man, woman and child on earth, you will be wiser.
Whittaker Chambers
Upon death the believer goes immediately into the presence of Christ in heaven, a realm far better than this earth. Heaven is our true home.
Paul P. Enns
I believe that the great Creator has put ores and oil on this Earth to give us a breathing spell … as we exhaust them, we must be prepared to fall back on our farms, which are God’s true storehouse. We can learn to synthesize materials for every human need from things that grow.
George Washington Carver
God hath given to man a short time here upon earth, and yet upon this short time eternity depends.
Jeremy Taylor
Of the infinite variety of fruits which spring from the bosom of the earth, the trees of the wood are the greatest in dignity.
Susan Fenimore Cooper
The earth is rude, silent, incomprehensible at first; Be not discouraged – keep on – there are divine things, well envelop’d; I swear to you there are divine things more beautiful than words can tell.
Walt Whitman
Brahma is the great Creator, Life a mystic drama; Heaven, and Earth, and living Nature Are but masks of Brahma.
John Stuart Blackie
Earth’s a howling wilderness,
Truculent with fraud and force.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
There are flood and drought over the eyes and in the mouth, dead water and dead sand contending for the upper hand. The parched eviscerate soil gapes at the vanity of toil, laughs without mirth. This is the death of the earth.
T. S. Eliot
One does not begin to make a garden until he wants a garden. To want a garden is to be interested in plants, in the winds and rains, in birds and insects, in the warm-smelling earth.
Liberty Hyde Bailey
Home is the dearest spot on earth, and it should be the centre, but not the boundary, of the affections.
Mary Baker Eddy
The greatest and the hottest fires that ever were on earth are but ice in comparison to the fire of hell.
Thomas Brooks
It should be recognized that this Church is not a social club. This is the kingdom of God on the earth. It is the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. Its purpose is to bring salvation and exaltation to both the living and the dead.
Gordon B. Hinckley
Famous men have the whole earth as their memorial.
Pericles
To teach kids that creationism explains something about the world is no different than teaching them that the earth is flat.
Alan Wolfe
Do you want to know the cause of war? It is capitalism, greed, the dirty hunger for dollars. Take away the capitalist and you will sweep war from the earth.
Henry Ford
Without love I mean nothing to you
Without love broken in two
Without love give me some value some worth
Without love no life left on earth.
Donna Lewis
I was told by my father, who was a priest, that it was the basic duty of a Muslim to establish peace on earth… I soon came to the conclusion that it was not religion but misuse of religion and politicising of religion, which was the main culprit.
Asghar Ali Engineer
You aren’t your work, your accomplishments, your possessions, your home, your family… your anything. You’re a creation of your Source, dressed in a physical human body intended to experience and enjoy life on Earth.
Wayne Dyer
Let the Jews who claim to be the chosen race prove their title by choosing the way of non-violence for vindicating their position on earth. Every country is their home, including Palestine, not by aggression but by loving service
Mahatma Gandhi
The myth of the first world is that
development is wealth and technology progress.
It is all rubbish.
It means that you are no longer human beings
but only labor.
It means that the land you live on is not earth
but only property.
Karen Tei Yamashita
America has the technology and resources to meet all its energy needs while safeguarding the earth’s climate. The urgent question now is, ‘Do we have the will?’ At least one city does, and I’m proud to live in it.
Denis Hayes
The language of literature is the language of all the world. It is necessary to divest ourselves at once of the notion of diversified vocal and grammatical speech which constitutes the various tongues of the Earth, and conceals the identity of image and logic in the minds of all men.
George Edward Woodberry
When a sincere woman begins to dance, the seven heavens, the earth, and all creatures begin to dance.
Shams Tabrizi
Pick a flower on Earth and you move the farthest star.
Paul Dirac
My family are very down-to-earth people. We are not showbizzy at all.
Gemma Arterton
The longer I live, the more I am enabled to realize that I have but one life to live on Earth, and that this one life is but a brief life, for sowing, in comparison with eternity, for reaping.
George Muller
Time is an abstraction which, on earth, exists only for the human brain it has evolved.
Charles Lindbergh
You don’t have to go to the kings and queens of the earth – I think the Greeks and Elizabethans did this because it was a logical concept – but every human being is in enormous conflict about something, even if it’s how to get to work in the morning and all of that.
Lorraine Hansberry
We could have saved the Earth but we were too damned cheap.
Kurt Vonnegut
In our search for more, we have blinded ourselves to our personal responsibility for challenging these absurdities. A resource-based society considers us all equal shareholders of Earth. We are responsible both for the planet and for our relationship with each other.

The RNA World referred to an hypothetical stage in the origin of life on Earth.

The proper use of science is not to conquer nature but to live in it.
Barry Commoner
No war can end war except a total war which leaves no human creature on earth. Each war creates the causes of war: hate, desire for revenge and have-nots, desperate with need.
Zelda Popkin
If an alien visited Earth, they would take some note of humans, but probably spend most of their time trying to understand the dominant form of life on our planet – microorganisms like bacteria and viruses.
Nathan Wolfe
A baby has brains, but it doesn’t know much. Experience is the only thing that brings knowledge, and the longer you are on earth the more experience you are sure to get.
L. Frank Baum
You know, there’s a certain irony in the fact that our lives and perhaps the lives of everyone on Earth may depend on Captain Patterson’s sex appeal.
Charles Beaumont
A drunk man, staggering and mindless, must be led home by his son, so wet is his psyche… Water brings death to the psyche, as earth brings death to water… The psyche lusts to be wet.
Heraclitus
We are all . . . children of this universe. Not just Earth, or Mars, or this system, but the whole grand fireworks. And if we are interested in Mars at all, it is only because we wonder over our past and worry terribly about our possible future.
Ray Bradbury
Why don’t they pass a constitutional amendment prohibiting anybody from learning anything? If it works as well as prohibition did, in five years Americans would be the smartest race of people on Earth.
Will Rogers
Mankind has probably done more damage to the Earth in the 20th century than in all of previous human history.
Jacques Yves Cousteau
We who are alive at this moment are only an infinitesimal part of something that has existed for eternity and will continue when there is no longer anything to show that earth existed. Still, we must feel and believe that we are all.

Stella McCartney
The original Jethro Tull was a 19th century English agriculturist who invented a seed drill you see. The first automatic process where by small holes were made in Mother Earth and even smaller seeds were deposited one at a time and neatly covered over as a cat does after having being naughty.
Ian Anderson
You draw the mystical kundalini from the earth. Earth is an element. Fire, air, earth, water, and ether – the mystical kundalini comes through them all.
Frederick Lenz
And the dream that our mind had sketched in haste Shall others continue, but never complete. For none upon earth can achieve his scheme; The best as the worst are futile here: We wake at the self-same point of the dream, All is here begun, and finished elsewhere.
Victor Hugo
The dead don’t stay interested in us living people for very long. Gradually, gradually, they let go hold of the earth . . . and the ambitions they had . . . and the things they suffered . . . and the people they loved. They get weaned away from the earth – that’s the way I put it – weaned away.
Thornton Wilder
Leisure, the highest happiness on earth, is seldom enjoyed with perfect satisfaction, except in solitude.
George Zimmerman
They were pleasant spring days, in which the winter of man’s discontent was thawing as well as the earth, and the life that had lain torpid began to stretch itself.
Henry David Thoreau
So I just let go with one hand, and just sort of swung around, looked at the Earth below and the black space above and the sun over my shoulder. And, I mean, it was this incredible, spectacular view.
Rusty Schweickart
So when he touched me, it was deeper and slower than the wildfire, like the flow of molten rock far beneath the surface of the earth. Too deep to feel the heat of it, but it moved inexorably, changing the very foundations of the world with its advance.
Stephenie Meyer
Today the darkness begins to grow shorter and the light to lengthen, as the hours of night become fewer…. Realize that the true light is now here and, through the rays of the gospel, is illumining the whole earth.

Which earth can never tame;
Bright suns may scorch and dark clouds lower;
Its flash is still the same.
Lydia M. Child

It is the bourgeoisie which has turned religion into an opium of the people by preaching a God, lord of the heavens only, while taking possession of the earth for itself.
Frei Betto
The earth is the very quintessence of the human condition.
Hannah Arendt
I think people who are creative are the luckiest people on earth. I know that there are no shortcuts, but you must keep your faith in something Greater than You, and keep doing what you love. Do what you love, and you will find the way to get it out to the world.

Jayceon Terrell Taylor
Soon is the struggle past, and to the earth,
To the eternal sun, I render back
These atoms, joined in me for pain and pleasure.

Taoist philosophy is essentially monistic. Matter and energy, Yang and Yin, heaven and earth, are conceived of as essentially one or as two coexistent poles of one indivisible whole.
Bruce Lee
Healing the Earth, through Healing Birth.
Jeannine Parvati Baker
Why does evolution matter? There is so much about the evolution of life, the development of life on Earth that should rivet the attention of everyone to understand where we’ve come from and where we might be going. We need to understand the world around us if we are to succeed as a species on the planet.
Sylvia Earle
If gardeners will forget a little the phrase, “watering the plants” and think of watering as a matter of “watering the earth” under the plants, keeping up its moisture content and gauging its need, the garden will get on very well.
Henry Beston
One naturally asks, what was the use of this great engine set at work ages ago to grind, furrow, and knead over, as it were, the surface of the earth? We have our answer in the fertile soil which spreads over the temperate regions of the globe. The glacier was God’s great plough.
Louis Agassiz
Beware of listening to this impostor; you are undone if you once forget that the fruits of the earth belong to us all, and the earth itself to nobody.
Jean-Jacques Rousseau
The government of heaven, if wickedly administered, would become one of the worst governments upon the face of the earth. No matter how good a government is, unless it is administered by righteous men, an evil government will be made of it.
Brigham Young
I’m Creole, and I’m down to earth.
Boozoo Chavis
It seems from Pope Francis, immigrants, anybody who doesn’t live here in America, has an automatic right to come here just because there’s no other place like it on earth. And what is never discussed is how it got so special. How did it happen? Why is it so prosperous? Why is it so free?
Rush Limbaugh
Year by year, more and more of the world gets disenchanted. Even the icy privacy of the arctic and antarctic circles is invaded. We have played Jack Horner with our earth, till there is never a plum left in it.
James Russell Lowell
In spite of the way many people are turning away from God, not for other gods, but for no god; in spite of the mess we are making of this beautiful Planet Earth which God has given us, God still loves the world.

Like the Spirit of Love felt everywhere;
And each flower and herb on Earth’s dark breast
rose from the dreams of its wintry rest.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
One journalist said that everybody in Russia is miserable. Russia is a terrible place. And I’m going to end up miserable and I’m going to be a drunk and I’m never going to do anything. I don’t drink. I’ve never been drunk in my life. And they talk about Russia like it’s the worst place on earth. Russia’s great.

Sailboats are the slowest form of transportation on Earth with the possible exeption of airline flights that go through O’Hare.
Dave Barry
You need to live in a dome initially, but over time you could terraform Mars to look like Earth and eventually walk around outside without anything on… So it’s a fixer-upper of a planet.

If you put Earth out beyond Neptune, you wouldn’t be able to call it a planet because it couldn’t clear its zone.
Alan Stern
Learn to turn to each person as the most sacred person on Earth, to each moment as the most sacred moment that has ever been given to us. Then perhaps we are awake a bit more, perhaps breathing together with God.

Joan Collins
So do the dark in soul expire, Or live like scorpion girt by fire; So writhes the mind remorse hath riven, Unfit for earth, undoom’d for heaven, Darkness above, despair beneath, Around it flame, within it death.
Lord Byron
What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.

How can the moribund old man reason back to himself the romance, the mystery, the imminence of great things with which our old earth tingled for him in the days when he was young and well?
William James
You were placed on this earth to create, not to compete.
Robert Anthony
If you have this idea that the earth is only 6,000 years old, you are denying, if you will, everything that you can touch and see. Youre not paying attention to whats happening in the universe around you.

Michael Pollan
The world is full of poetry as the earth is of pay-dirt; one only needs to know how to strike it.

Albert Einstein

Deion Sanders
Our contest is not only whether we ourselves shall be free, but whether there shall be left to mankind an asylum on earth for civil and religious liberty.
Samuel Adams
The power of population is so superior to the power of the earth to produce subsistence for man, that premature death must in some shape or other visit the human race.
Thomas Malthus
Well, The Day the Earth Caught Fire was a story… I don’t if anybody knows what it is but it was about… in the early days of testing nuclear bombs, that Russia and America happened to test a nuclear bomb at the same moment at different ends of the earth.
Val Guest
Today I have grown taller from walking with the trees.
Karle Wilson Baker
It’s very important for the coming times to have a sound economic base and to be as mobile as possible. The energy lines will be shifting strongly as we enter into the end phase of the earth’s cycle.
Frederick Lenz
I love your silences, they are like mine. You are the only being before whom I am not distressed by my own silences. You have a vehement silence, one feels it is charged with essences, it is a strangely alive silence, like a trap open over a well, from which one can hear the secret murmur of the earth itself.
Anais Nin
I hope to be remembered as someone who made the earth a little more beautiful.
William O. Douglas
The crew of the space shuttle Challenger honored us by the manner in which they lived their lives. We will never forget them, nor the last time we saw them, this morning, as they prepared for their journey and waved good-bye and ‘slipped the surly bonds of earth’ to ‘touch the face of God.
Ronald Reagan
The time you spend with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament is the best time you will spend on earth. Each moment that you spend with Jesus will deepen your union with Him and make your soul everlastingly more glorious and beautiful in Heaven, and will help bring about everlasting peace on earth
Mother Teresa
As a mountain is unshaken by the wind, so the heart of a wise person is unmoved by all the changes on this earth.
Gautama Buddha
The name of our proper connection to the earth is ‘good work,’ for good work involves much giving of honor. It honors the source of its materials; it honors the place where it is done; it honors the art by which it is done; it honors the thing that it makes and the user of the made thing.
Wendell Berry
Clean, tasty, real foods do not come processed in boxes or bags; they come from the earth, the sea, the field, or the farm.

Brigham Young
Every social network on Earth pitches me, and I say no to nearly every single one of them.

Poverty has a home in Africalike a quiet second skin.It may be the only place on earth where it is worn with unconscious dignity.
Bessie Head
Man’s deliberate destruction of his own habitat — planet Earth — could serve as a mighty theme for a mighty book worthy of a modern Melville or Tolstoy. But our best fictioneers confine themselves to domestic drama — soap opera with literary trimmings.
Edward Abbey
Human consensus does not generate reality. Were it able to do so, the Sun would have taken to orbiting the Earth some time ago.
Ursula Goodenough
Warhol was a prime example of a schizoid person. Maybe he had Asperger’s, or maybe he was just an amorous human being on earth.
Jim Shaw
God has put something noble and good into every heart his hand has created. So while living on earth we must always remember to learn from yesterday, live for today, and hope for tomorrow because time will only show what has mattered throughout our journey.

BolesЕ‚aw Prus
I like girls that are down to earth, intelligent, and don’t try to be anything that they’re not. One thing that I fall for all the time is girls with blue eyes and brown hair. There’s something about that combination that I find really sexy. It’s all in the eyes…and the personality, but that’s obvious.
Devon Bostick
Far more than any other power, imagination is what sets human beings apart from every other species on earth.
Ken Robinson
My musical director, Mark Cherry, is the most wonderful person who ever lived on God’s good green Earth. He’s my director, he does the arrangements. Really, he does everything – including certain janitorial chores!
Brett Somers
No power on earth is greater than a mind and soul reawakened. Our Constitution begins we the people, not us the government.

J. Reuben Clark
Over the last 25 years, the American free enterprise system created the most diverse video programming on earth with the best value for the customer. It is disappointing that the updated report relies on assumptions that are not in line with the reality of the marketplace.

Life on earth is more like a verb. It repairs, maintains, re-creates, and outdoes itself.

Voltaire

Roger Ebert
McGovern is so far left that he is in danger of falling off the earth.

Earth and sea merged, the sea tossed itself in the air in a fantastic dance, into the shapes of men and horses and tattered banners. I stood in the lee of an overhanging rock and thought of many things.
Knut Hamsun
Earth is a homicide victim. We lose our children. There are wars. Disease. And God comes strolling by like a cosmic Billie Burke.
William Peter Blatty
Man’s sin is in his failure to live what he is. Being the master of the earth, man forgets that he is the servant of God.

And just as the false assumption that we are not connected to the earth has led to the ecological crisis, so to the equally false assumption that we arenot connected to each other that has led to our social crisis.
Al Gore
The Earth is not dying-it is being killed. And the people who are killing it have names and addresses.
