James L. Farmer, Jr.
I think that as a playwright, if I detail that environment, then I’m taking away something from them [designers]. I’m taking away their creativity and their ability to have input themselves, not just to follow what the playwright has written. So I do a minimum set description and let the designers create within that.
August Wilson
A body seriously out of equilibrium, either with itself or with its environment, perishes outright. Not so a mind. Madness and suffering can set themselves no limit.

Trust is the glue that holds everything together. It creates the environment in which all of the other elements win-win stewardship agreements, self-directing individuals and teams, aligned structures and systems, and accountability can flourish.

Michael Crichton
Political and legal institutions play a central role in setting the environment that can nurture prosperity and economic growth.

Mark Twight
One argument against open systems is that they become open to everything, good and bad. Like a Richard Meier skyscraper, the anal retentive, Bauhaus elegance of the Mac does prevent the loose ends and confusion of a less sterile environment. But it also prevents fertility. Apple’s development must come from within.
Douglas Rushkoff
The environment does not determine man’s culture; it merely sets the outer limits and at the same time offers opportunities.
Peter Farb
The new leaders face new tests such as how to lead in this idea-intensive, interdependent network environment

Ry Cooder
Lack of awareness of the basic unity of organism and environment is a serious and dangerous hallucination.

So much beauty in the world, so few eyes to see it.
Albert Cossery
My father was a naturalist and a very spiritual person, who had a great desire to pass on his knowledge to others, so that they could receive the benefits of Jiu Jitsu as well.

Carlos Gracie, Jr.
The current financial crisis calls out for new products and services as well as more, not less, information about what is safe and profitable in the future environment.

Even though we don’t know squat about how the brain works, the little we do know suggests that if you wanted to design a learning environment that was directly opposed to what the brain was naturally good at doing, you would design the education system we currently have, not only in America, but all over the world!

John McCain
I think that if it is – has to do with global warming, or if it has to do with raising the minimum wage, or if it has to do with lowering prescription drugs for vulnerable citizens – all of those things are people issues, not Democratic issues or Republican issues.
Arnold Schwarzenegger
It’s based not only on what it played like in the theater, but it’s also knowing that certain things play differently in a home theater environment. You have different expectations when you’re sitting with 700 people than when you’re sitting with your friends or family. It’s just a different world.
David Fincher
Having an environment that is supportive is really important for success.
Tory Burch
As an artist, you take things from your environment, and there’s going to be a style coming out of your environment.

Jonny Kim
A sustainable business is resource efficient, respects the environment and is a good neighbour
Phil Harding
He invited people to sign a petition that demanded either strict control of, or a total ban on, dihydrogen monoxide…. Yes, 86 percent of the passersby voted to ban water (H2O) from the environment. Maybe that’s what really happened to all the water on Mars.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
You can’t motivate a group of people or a Team. You have to motivate people individually, and that motivation has to be in an environment in which that person has a goal – something they want to accomplish in their lives.

John Flansburgh
I think when you’re live on TV in an unscripted environment a lot slips through the cracks of your real self. People can read my face, they know what I’m thinking.
Andy Cohen
We spend a lot of time bickering at great cost, and very little time actually coming up with solutions. And I think we misuse our ambition for our own gains and rarely for the betterment of ourselves, and people around us and our environment. And I think that’s sort of pathetic and desperate.
Dave Matthews
Genetic engineering is having a serious impact on the food we eat, on the environment, and on farmers. To ensure we can maximize benefits and minimize hazards, Congress must provide a comprehensive regulatory framework for all genetically engineered products.

James Howard Kunstler
The most certain thing you can say about the environment tomorrow is that it probably is going to be just like today, for the most part.

George Santayana
Love must be as much a light as it is a flame.
Henry David Thoreau

Rachel Carson

David Baszucki
We live in a very uncertain world, and I think that uncertainty of itself generates an environment which we should not make a decision that deprives future generations of the deterrent effect that the nuclear weapons have provided for us and for almost all of my life.
Des Browne
Personally, I don’t even read bummer news stories about the environment because it makes me feel helpless to fix anything and reminds me that the general population doesn’t treat these issues as an important part of our political life.
Rachel Dratch
We need to accept the seemingly obvious fact that a toxic environment can make people sick and that no amount of medical intervention can protect us. The health care community must become a powerful political lobby for environmental policy and legislation.
Andrew Weil
Markets are lethal, if only because of ignoring externalities, the impacts of their transactions on the environment.
Noam Chomsky
Man can and does rationalize his sins. He finds reasons for all his weakness, invents excuses that first calm and then deaden his conscience. He blames God, society, education, and environment for his wrong doing.
Mother Angelica
Healing is the return of the memory of wholeness. Healing, health, whole and holy all mean inclusiveness. Body, mind, spirit, environment, relationships, social interactions are all one wholeness, and you’re a part of that one wholeness.
Deepak Chopra
My seminars are for you. They are moments, hours and evenings outside of time. A chance, in a highly charged environment, to meditate, find stillness, and remember who you are. A place, with others of like mind, to find and lose yourself in the transcendental light.
Frederick Lenz
Everybody says women are like water. I think it’s because water is the source of life, and it adapts itself to its environment. Like women, water also gives of itself wherever it goes to nurture life.
There is nothing in which the birds differ more from man than the way in which they can build and yet leave a landscape as it was before.
Robert Wilson Lynd
There isn’t a line that you can draw between the air and your body. We are the environment.
Severn Cullis-Suzuki
Much of what you do as an actor – it’s who’s around you, what’s the environment, where do you fit into this thing. That’s really work that’s impossible to do on your own, at least for me. I find it hard to pre-plan every element of everything I do. It’s not my thing.
John Malkovich
The advent of digitally enhancing images – and the fact that actresses weren’t protesting against that – created an environment where big corporations felt like they had total ownership over the bodies of actresses.
Romola Garai
We’re too many people; that’s why we have global warming…on a voluntary basis, everybody in the world’s got to pledge to themselves that one child is it.
Ted Turner
This is a deeply spiritual issue…Do we want to spend more time trying to care for our fellow man or do we want to just pursue more virtual reality? That’s the issue before us.. and it’s being played out in the world of the environment.
Ed Begley, Jr.
Every ex-player I meet says the exact same thing to me ‘I wish I had given it longer’. Too many players get flights home when they have the opportunity because they’ re missing their mates and home, then they go back into that environment and get comfortable.
Kevin Kilbane
Nick Yablon ranges widely, from log cabins to skyscrapers and from Tocqueville to pulp fiction. He combines imaginative research with probing interpretation. Untimely Ruins offers fresh and challenging insights about the American built environment on nearly every page.

Jonas Salk
A necessary process for the artist is one which begins with a point of view, a reaction to the environment, to people, to whatever it is one is concerned with.
Jacques Lipchitz
Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he’s been given. But up to now he hasn’t been a creator, only a destroyer. Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life’s become extinct, the climate’s ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day.
Anton Chekhov
Can we really expect adequate funding for programs to clean up our environment and care for people’s basic needs as long as the socially essential work of caretaking and cleaning is relegated to women for little or no pay?
Riane Eisler
Disney is a machine, and I’m grateful for it, but I feel like being part of that environment made me crave the reaction from other projects even more.
Selena Gomez

Steven Bochco
I come from suburban America. It was a very safe environment and it was a good place to come from in that it was a good place to leave.
Robert Mapplethorpe
I believe always you should have a philanthropic heart inside but business way. Because you have to get things done. That is what scientists tell us how to do properly. Business should tell us how to get things done efficiently. And government should have the good environment and the foundations of researching.
Jack Ma
A related recurring theme is the exploration of how we take for granted the things in our immediate environment that are common and ordinary. Existential blindness, of sorts.
Vera Nazarian
It makes sense in that environment that you would hold on in the U.S. government to the people who know their way around this particular block.
Rachel Maddow
Look closely at nature. Every species is a masterpiece, exquisitely adapted to the particular environment in which it has survived. Who are we to destroy or even diminish biodiversity?
E. O. Wilson
The whole purpose was to say that it doesn’t have to be a zero sum. It’s not the environment or jobs. You can have both. You can help the auto industry achieve that if you have investment in plants.
Jennifer Granholm
I think one of the other myths is that your environment determines your happiness. That if you are living with an alcoholic or living with a depressed spouse for a long time, you are just going to be unhappy.
Gary Chapman
Well, in some ways we’re not successful at all. We’re destroying our home. That’s not a bit successful.
Jane Goodall
Climate change is for real. We have just a small window of opportunity and it is closing rather rapidly. There is not a moment to lose.
Rajendra K. Pachauri
But when you have to deal with notes, and to be able to make a full definition of what a sound is – if you are not around that environment, then you’ll find you lose that feel, that momentum, you lose all that.
Dennis Brown
As soils are depleted, human health, vitality and intelligence go with them.
Louis Bromfield
I just try to find ways to love the people that I’m around. It’s hard sometimes because I’m selfish and I want to focus inwardly but when I can fight against that and look at other people’s needs, it’s really a stark contrast to what people are used to in such a selfish environment.
Matt Diaz
The pace of Swedish crime fiction is slower – Stieg Larsson’s the exception. And I think we use the environment more.
Camilla Lackberg
The world must not only be interpreted, it must be transformed. Man ceases to be the slave and tool of his environment and converts himself into the architect of his own destiny.
Che Guevara
The wettest, weirdest environment is human interaction. Whatever we build gets misunderstood, corroded and chronic, and it happens quickly and in unpredictable ways. That’s one reason why the web is so fascinating-it’s a collision between the analytic world of code and wet world of people.
Seth Godin
You can’t have virtue without sin. What I’m after is having my characters’ virtues defined by how they operate in a very sinful environment. That’s how you test people.
Frank Miller
The environment changed with Martha Stewart and Enron.
Steve Martin
The two real leads in ‘Children of Men’ are Clive Owen and the social environment. You know, this same movie without the social environment maybe is just like a generic chase movie.
Alfonso Cuaron
The only thing we have to fear on this planet is man.
Carl Jung
The challenge for capitalism is that the things that breed trust also breed the environment for fraud.
James Surowiecki
Not only do squats build muscle in the quadriceps, hamstrings and calves, they also allow for the release of testosterone and growth hormone providing a highly anabolic environment for all other areas to grow when trained.
Gabe Kapler
If we are really serious about protecting the environment, the discharge pipes and stacks of industry would all plug directly into their intake side, and costs would not be externalized to a voiceless environment.
Wes Jackson
We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us.
Aldo Leopold
People tend to work in teams, in a collaborative way, in an informal network. If you create an environment like that, it’s much more effective and much more efficient.
Jim Mitchell
Most people aren’t anywhere near to realizing their creative potential, in part because they’re laboring in environments that impede intrinsic motivation.
Teresa Amabile
Our team from the same type of environment but at the same time we haven’t had things peachy. We have had to work for everything we’ve wanted. That situation for us is just kind of similar. So we just vibe out honestly.
Cleanthony Early
It’s the opposite journey from what I’ve usually done with films. I find it very easy to go from, say, a lit, pleasurable environment, like what you see outside there, to a very dark place. But the opposite journey, which is what this movie takes, is much more complicated.
Neil Jordan
The result [Republicans winning the Senate] would be devastating for reproductive choice, the environment, civil liberties, Social Security and health care, as well as corporate accountability.
Barbra Streisand
Evolution normally does not come to a halt, but constantly ‘tracks’ the changing environment.
Richard Dawkins
Let the states of equilibrium and harmony exist in perfection, and a happy order will prevail throughout heaven and earth, and all things will be nourished and flourish.
There is consequence of our forgetting who we are. Forgetting that we’re able to create our environment, from our health to economy to war. Something can be done about everything we perceive as bad, if we so choose. If we are aware of the concept of compassion.
Alanis Morissette
In a social environment that is ever crowded and impersonal, it is becoming increasingly important to reconsider the value of close personal relationships before we are driven to ask the forlorn question, ‘Whatever happened to love?’
Desmond Morris
As we talk with candour, we open the doors to new possibilities and new areas of cooperation in advance in democracy, in combating terrorism, in energy and environment, science and technology and international peacekeeping.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee
I suspect that a substantial fraction of human problems in the world today, not just cults, result from the mismatch between the current environment and the environment in which we evolved.
Keith Henson
Oracle will continue to componentize all of its solutions so we can work in a heterogeneous environment.
Mark V. Hurd
Always we try to put the wild in a cage.
John Fowles
I think the driving force for cultural evolution is this desire for groups to be splitting off and separating and forming subgroups insofar as the environment will allow it. We see great cultural diversity and large numbers of cultures per unit area in regions of the world in which the environment is really rich.
Mark Pagel
How could intelligent beings seek to control a few unwanted species by a method that contaminated the entire environment and brought the threat of disease and death even to their own kind?
Rachel Carson
I could do all of my activities at Howard because it was an environment that had essentially rid the ideology of false choices that I feel absolutely constricts young black students.
Kamala Harris
Who are businesses really responsible to? Their customers? Shareholders? Employees? We would argue that it’s none of the above. Fundamentally, businesses are responsible to their resource base. Without a healthy environment there are no shareholders, no employees, no customers and no business.
Yvon Chouinard
I had a very supportive family environment that gave me room to explore and discover things about myself.
Brad Pitt
What politics I ever learned, I learned in the streets, because it was part of the environment.
Bob Dylan
There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.
Lord Byron
I’m in ‘Gods of Egypt.’ It was CGI on a level that I’ve never encountered. You’re in a blue environment on a mirrored floor because that’s going to be looking like Ra the Sun God’s boat. In the studio, it was like I was in a Robert Lepage theatrical piece.
Geoffrey Rush
Typically we don’t think of cities as being particularly extreme environments, but few places on earth get as hot as a rooftop or as dry as the corner of a heated living room.
Adam Rogers
Christ changes men, who then change their environment. The world would shape human behavior, but Christ can change human nature.
Ezra Taft Benson
We have to appreciate that we are part of nature, we must work with nature; the environment is our lifeline.
Lewis Pugh
We need to promote development that does not destroy our environment.
Wangari Maathai
A lot of the girls were awful, very catty. It was a competitive environment that I didn’t like. You have no idea of the anorexia I saw around me.
Kate Winslet
Culture is the deeper level of basic assumptions and beliefs that are shared by members of an organization, that operate unconsciously and define in a basic ‘taken for granted’ fashion an organization’s view of its self and its environment.
Edgar Schein
I’m particularly struck by the neo-socialist concern for the well-being of plants, animals, lakes and rivers, rain forests and deserts – particularly when the concern for the environment appears far more intense than the concern for the human family.
Robert Sirico
For me, my role is about unleashing what people already have inside them that is maybe suppressed in most work environments.
Tony Hsieh
A big ethical question is what happens after people stop using the device. Does it degrade the environment? Could it have been designed so it would actually be good for the environment?
Donald Norman
I think there’s a green side to John Kerry, if you like, that he’s an environmental activist. His record on the environment is as best as you have on a pro-environment record of anybody in the U.S. Senate.
Douglas Brinkley
The whole point of interior design is about creating environments where people can really live their lives and where you can connect with your friends and family.
Vern Yip
Spend hundreds of millions; talk endlessly about issues; present 12-point plans for education, the economy, and the environment. But in the end, the election of our next president can turn on a gaffe.
Jack Germond
It is not the organs-that is, the character and form of the animal’s bodily parts-that have given rise to its habits and particular structures. It is the habits and manner of life and the conditions in which its ancestors lived that have in the course of time fashioned its bodily form, its organs and qualities.
Jean-Baptiste Lamarck
A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children.
John James Audubon
The major problem with most attempts to predict a specific outcome, such as interviews, is decontextualization: the attempt takes place in a generalized environment, as opposed to the context in which a behavior or trait naturally occurs.
Maria Konnikova
The Earth is our environment to protect and the garden to tend to.
Pope Francis
When a love-relationship is at its height there is no room left for any interest in the environment; a pair of lovers are sufficient to themselves
Sigmund Freud
Historically the Department of Education hasn’t been doing enough to drive the sustainability movement, and today, I promise that we will be a committed partner in the national effort to build a more environmentally literate and responsible society.
Arne Duncan
The beauty of the environment is an important factor in the quality of life.
Yehuda Levi
I remember my Republican Party as fiscally conservative, as caring about the environment.
Lincoln Chafee
If you wish to make an apple pie from scratch, you must first invent the universe.
Carl Sagan
When I got to filmmaking, the most democratic of environments where anybody could say anything, those were the best environments, but what you don’t want to assume is that you know what the audience is thinking.
Rick Moranis
A man who doesn’t think differently from his time and environment can’t grow beyond his time and environment.
Mustafa Kemal Ataturk
‎Using his burgeoning intelligence, this most successful of all mammals has exploited the environment to produce food for an ever increasing population. Instead of controlling the environment for the benefit of the population, perhaps it’s time we controlled the population to allow the survival of the environment.
David Attenborough
The hungry world cannot be fed until and unless the growth of its resources and the growth of its population come into balance. Each man and woman-and each nation-must make decisions of conscience and policy in the face of this great problem.
Lyndon B. Johnson
Man shapes himself through decisions that shape his environment.
Rene Dubos
Each environment has its own signature. Sound tells a story: You make choices about what you’re hearing, where to look, how you want to feel about what’s going on.
Stephen Hopkins
Adaptation to one’s environment makes for a sort of survival; but after all, the supreme victory is only won by those who prove themselves of so much hardier stuff than the rest that no power on earth is able to destroy them. The people who have really made history are the martyrs.
Aleister Crowley
Classrooms keep getting set up more and more around the verbal and less around the kinesthetic and active. They are increasingly becoming environments that favour the girls’ brain.
Michael Gurian
I enjoyed entertaining people since I was a little girl. There was nothing better than making people laugh. That, and the need to express myself in a safe environment.
Amy Weber
In the absence of sound oversight,responsible businesses are forced to compete against unscrupulous and underhanded businesses, who are unencumbered by any restrictions on activities that might harm the environment, or take advantage of middle-class families, or threaten to bring down the entire financial system.
Barack Obama
Study nature not books
Louis Agassiz
But research confirms that both Republican and Democratic women are more likely than their male counterparts to initiate and fight for bills that champion social justice, protect the environment, advocate for families, and promote nonviolent conflict resolution.
Dee Dee Myers
I don’t want our success to be measured only by financial yardsticks, or by our distribution or number of shops. What I want to be celebrated for – and it’s going to be tough in a business environment – is how good we are to our employees and how we benefit our community. It’s a different bottom line.
Anita Roddick
In the end, it will just melt away quite suddenly. It might not be as early as 2013 but it will be soon, much earlier than 2040.
Peter Wadhams
Even getting one amazing shot in a pristine environment is what I live for.
Travis Rice
All things are bound together. All things connect.
Chief Seattle
Nature never hurries: atom by atom, little by little, she achieves her work. The lesson one learns from yachting or planting is the manners of Nature; patience with the delays of wind and sun, delays of the seasons, bad weather, excess or lack of water.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Environmental Control and Life Support System (ECLSS), which controls the living environment on shuttles and on the International Space Station, doesn’t have the luxury of disposal: discharging trash into space has long been judged a bad idea.
Rose George
I usually control the environment I’m in, but my control is very quiet and subtle.
Michael Caine
The kind of event on a conveyor belt that causes a fire occurs in a variety of industrial environments, not uniquely in coal environments.
Richard Price
Economic advance is not the same thing as human progress.
John Clapham
There are some aspects of work you need to keep working on and no matter what environment you are in. Continuous learning is very important. It’s what I call ‘competitive tension’, which is about having a competition around.
Viswanathan Anand
It was inspiring to learn of the new Bachelor of Environmental Studies Program, and I congratulate you for it. Singapore is geographically in the right central position for an influence in Asia and Australia, and NUS has the reputation and academic strength to make it effective.
E. O. Wilson
I don’t do celebrity endorsements. My work with Conservation International is a good use of whatever celebrity I might have to draw attention to important problems. I have the same responsibility as everyone to reduce consumption and to teach children to respect the environment.
Harrison Ford
You can go down the list of great artists and kind of understand that they are products of their environment. Whether it’s U2 or Henry Rollins or myself or Johnny Lydon, they’re gonna be products of their environment.
Eddie Vedder
What’s all this whining about the environment? They’re always talking about ‘stop the clearcuts.’ I mean do the math people. If we were out of trees then we wouldn’t have any clearcuts to be complaining about now would we?
George W. Bush
When we had to survive on our wits, gather and kill our food from scratch and be more at the mercy of our environment than we are today, we probably had enough challenge to keep our brains healthy.
Philippa Perry
Never underestimate the power of gaining a new perspective by simply changing your immediate environment. Going for a walk, reading a book, or talking to a friend can provide you with life-changing insights that you not otherwise attain while remaining stagnant.
Hal Elrod
Neither heredity nor environment determine character. But whether we give in to or overcome the negative messages we are exposed to as we wend our way through life is often determined by whether our parents, teachers, mentors and friends exposed us to good examples and morally inspiring ideas.
Michael Josephson
Our farmers are constantly deploying conservation techniques that keep our environment strong – and it’s time we made them a consistent part of our efforts to protect it.
Abigail Spanberger
Water is H2O, hydrogen two parts, oxygen one, but there is also a third thing, that makes it water and nobody knows what that is.
D. H. Lawrence
The slogan used to be ‘Populate or perish’. We can now see that it is more like ‘Populate and perish’. A sustainable future has to be based on stabilisation of both population and consumption.
Ian Lowe
Rather than beautifying one’s own creation, make better the environment that surrounds it.
Yugo Nakamura
Indeed, the economy and the environment need not be seen in opposition.
Jacob Rothschild
There has been a concerted effort to frame caring about climate change and the environment as an alternate religion – one that worships the creation rather than the creator, so to speak.
Katharine Hayhoe
We have become frighteningly effective at altering nature.
Sylvia Earle
Climate change is a result of the greatest market failure the world has seen…We risk damages on a scale larger than the two world wars of the last century.
Nicholas Stern
The master mind is the mind that thinks what it wants to think, regardless of what circumstances, environment or associations may suggest.
Christian D. Larson
If you don’t get trained for your SATs in America today, you are at a disadvantage. Training is expensive and a lot of kids don’t get trained, perhaps. So I also identify with the kid or the person who has grown up in environments like I’ve grown up in.
Millard Drexler
The great thing about living in New York is the constant change of things. It inspires me to keep moving, push forward, question ideas. I have a heavy travel schedule so being in a new environment always gives me another perspective to see things from.
John Varvatos
This is a tough environment, and it’s tough for everybody.
Brit Hume
It is difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends upon his not understanding it.
Upton Sinclair
I feel that my role as a former president is probably superior to that of other presidents. Primarily because of the activism and the injection of working at the Carter Center, and in international affairs, and to some degree, domestic affairs, on energy conservation, on environment, and things of that kind.
Jimmy Carter
Absolute faith is not the place of self-affirmation, but the place of self-negation. Life of faith is not limited to our spiritual life. What is important is how our spiritual sensitivity is applied to our relative environment.
Sun Myung Moon
The struggle to save the global environment is in one way much more difficult than the struggle to vanquish Hitler, for this time the war is with ourselves. We are the enemy, just as we have only ourselves as allies.
Al Gore
The word “wilderness” occurs approximately three hundred times in the Bible, and all its meanings are derogatory.
Rene Dubos
Washington tends to be full of too many traps. I think reporters there do a lot of attending news briefings and news conferences expecting to get the real news out of those relatively sterile environments. But you’ve got to deal with the obscure people as well as the names.
Tom Brokaw
If you can’t excite people about wildlife, how can you convince them to love, cherish, and protect our wildlife and the environment they live in?
Steve Irwin
Winter is dead; spring is crazy; summer is cheerful and autumn is wise!
Mehmet Murat Ildan
Once you understand the power of stimulus control, you can use it to your advantage by changing the stimuli in your environment and avoiding undesirable ones; or, if that’s not possible, by filling your consciousness with thoughts about their less tempting aspects.
Jonathan Haidt
The end result of the adoption of permaculture strategies in any country or region will be to dramatically reduce the area of the agricultural environment needed by the households and the settlements of people, and to release much of the landscape for the sole use of wildlife and for re-occupation by endemic flora.
Bill Mollison
I believe that mycelium is the neurological network of nature. Interlacing mosaics of mycelium infuse habitats with information-sharing membranes. These membranes are aware, react to change, and collectively have the long-term health of the host environment in mind.
Paul Stamets
When I speak out on corporations hurting the common man or the environment or other species, I expect a well-financed disinformation campaign to be aimed my way.
Neil Young
My background educationally is physics and economics, and I grew up in sort of an engineering environment – my father is an electromechanical engineer. And so there were lots of engineery things around me.
Elon Musk
The world hasn’t ended, but the world as we know it has-even if we don’t quite know it yet.
Bill McKibben
The prospect of cheap fusion energy is the worst thing that could happen to the planet.
Jeremy Rifkin
No accident of environment or circumstance need cut us off from nature. … It does not matter how shut in we are. Opportunity for wide experience is of small acccount in this as in other things; it is depth that brings understanding and life.
Mary Webb
[On climate change:] What if it’s all a hoax and we’ve created a better world for nothing?
Naomi Klein
The environment is God’s gift to everyone, and in our use of it we have a responsibility towards the poor, towards future generations, and towards humanity as a whole.
Pope Benedict XVI
Human ambitions are like Japanese carp; they grow proportional to the size of their environment. Our achievements grow according to the size of our dreams and the degree to which we are in touch with our mission.
Keith Ferrazzi
Help! I’m being held prisoner by my heredity and environment.
Dennis Allen
I lived in Paris for six months when I was sixteen. It was a fend-for-yourself environment.
Beau Garrett
Writing’s not precious to me. It’s not a thing that requires specific environment. You know, it’s my job. Just like anybody with a job, you have to do your job when you don’t feel like it, regardless of how good or bad the conditions are, regardless of how good or bad you might feel on any particular day.
James Frey
The contingency of history (both for life in general and for the cultures of Homo sapiens ) and human free will (in the factual rather than theological sense) are conjoined concepts, and no better evidence can be produced than the “experimental” production of markedly different solutions in identical environments.
Stephen Jay Gould
I was brought up in an environment to believe that my opinion was important, that I had something to say, and that it was no less powerful because I was young, a girl, at the time really unattractive, definitely not the smartest kid in the class.
Megyn Kelly
When I grew up, we didn’t have a TV, and I think more families today have ambitions of getting out of their environment, such as sending their children to university.
Robert Winston
It’s very important to set your place in a concrete environment. I think Chekhov said that the important thing when you have a play or any kind of novel is to set the roots in a concrete place.
Roman Polanski
Take good care of creation. St. Francis wanted that. People occasionally forgive, but nature never does. If we don’t take care of the environment, there’s no way of getting around it.
Pope Francis
I strongly believe as a mother, as does my husband, that there are certain contributing factors that lead to autism and some of it is very much the chemicals in our environment and in our food.
Kelly Preston
I think there’s an interesting line drawn towards extreme environments, and the way I define extreme is through a sense of otherness. Or foreignness.
Tavares Strachan
It’s in the environment of worship that we learn things that go way beyond what our intellect can grasp
Bill Johnson
Not explicitly, no. Compared to this enormous, relentless evolutionary activity in the built environment, writing is small potatoes.
Teju Cole
When geologists announced the beginning of a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene, humans destroying the environment, one of the main things they pointed to is the use of plastics in the earth.
Noam Chomsky
It’s such a stressful environment, I find, being an actor, being put in the chair and ‘Touch this, that, and the other,’ it’s too much for me. I find it hard to tolerate that sort of stuff. If you’re not enjoying it, don’t do it. You’re wasting everyone’s time.
Paddy Considine
Personally I discovered that you could go through the academy as a young scholar, come out, and almost immediately have an impact on the academic environment.
Bernice Johnson Reagon
The phenomenon of emergence takes place at critical points of instability that arise from fluctuations in the environment, amplified by feedback loops. Emergence results in the creation of novelty, and this novelty is often qualitatively different from the phenomenon out of which it emerged.
Fritjof Capra
We humans still have a long way to go with learning to live harmoniously with our environment and its wildlife.
Steve Irwin
When the planes still swoop down and aerial spray a field in order to kill a predator insect with pesticides, we are in the Dark Ages of commerce.
Paul Hawken
We want our buildings to work like a machine that will create a pleasurable environment.
Helmut Jahn
There’s an aesthetic theme, which is cities at two o’clock in the morning. Not cities packed with people going out to clubs and dancing but desolate, empty streets. It’s off-putting but there’s a strange comfort to it as well, that desolate urban environment.
I’ve had a lot of disappointments. I think my biggest disappointment is the failure of elected officials to make good on their promises in regards to the environment or anything else, really. I have very little faith in politicians.
Paul Watson
We save paradise by an intense education program where you get people that you can trust to talk sanely about the environment and hope that the message will get through.
Arthur Boyd
The use of sea and air is common to all; neither can a title to the ocean belong to any people or private persons, forasmuch as neither nature nor public use and custom permit any possession therof.
Elizabeth I
I grew up in New York in an English-speaking environment.
Erik Estrada
The American president [George W. Bush] closes his eyes to the economic and human damages that are inflicted on his country and the world economy by natural disasters, like Katrina, through neglected climate protection.
Jurgen Trittin
We live within the environment. So that directly relates with our survival, our life. So through that way, more concern of well being of humanity, then naturally concerned about environment.
Dalai Lama
Dear future generations: Please accept our apologies. We were rolling drunk on petroleum.
Kurt Vonnegut
Dinner is often a very celebratory environment, a very safe place, a time to reflect and let the day go and enjoy good food and good wine. It’s a very peaceful moment during the day. A great dinner can change your day around.
Brett Gelman
With a healthy environment all our lives are enriched – without it our lives are diminished. The environment is and will always be number one – One Life, One World, Our Future.
Arron Wood
First of all, it’s a blast. Just fun; it’s a good environment to play. And Jayne and I have a great time together because we’re somewhat familiar with each other; that’s a fun and comfortable place to start at when building our relationship. Everyone’s incredible and they’re good at what they do.
Kendra Kassebaum
Your outlook upon life, your estimate of yourself, your estimate of your value are largely colored by your environment. Your whole career will be modified, shaped, molded by your surroundings, by the character of the people with whom you come in contact every day.
Orison Swett Marden
The revolt against one’s environment is usually ‘shame’ of one’s environment.
Czeslaw Milosz
We must guard against the overreaching hand of big government trying to take away our freedom. And we must always protect the environment in a manner consistent with our values.
Steve Forbes
There are seeds of happiness planted in every human soul. Our mental attitude and disposition constitute the environment in which these seeds may germinate.
David O. McKay
a man can break God’s laws and be forgiven. That’s what they teach us. But when he breaks Nature’s laws, there’s no forgiveness – and there’s no escape. Sooner or later he pays the penalty, or his children pay it – or his children’s children. It doesn’t matter much. It must be paid.
Martha Ostenso
We live in a world where no one believes. Enlightenment and knowledge are laughed at. Those who seek and teach the mysteries are scorned and often persecuted. Welcome to the planet earth: environment hostile.
Frederick Lenz
We need a leader able to project his or her personality and present our policies in today’s media environment. All this is true – but we also need a leader capable of building a team, inspiring loyalty from colleagues, and one genuinely open to ideas.
Bob Ainsworth
Nature’s instructions are always slow; those of men are generally premature.
Henri Rousseau
Childish egocentrism is, in its essence, an inability to differentiate between the ego and the social environment.
Jean Piaget
I didn’t just grow up in one environment, so it was easy for me, as a child, just to imitate and just be all these different people.
Clifton Collins, Jr.
Space is an environment of emptiness. It offers no possibility for natural adaptation to any living organism – and particularly not to the highly sophisticated creature, man. Yet man has the ability to resolve this paradox through his intellectual power and creative faculties.
Hubertus Strughold
Become one with eternity.
Become part of your environment.
Take off your clothes.
Forget yourself. Make love.
Self-destruction is the only
way to peace.
Yayoi Kusama
We cannot feast on global resources while the world’s poor struggle to survive on inhospitable lands.
It is as simple as that.
It is the rich who are making the world poorer.
Environment and Poverty are one crisis, not two.
Petra Kelly
Women – why aren’t you running the world yet? Frankly I’m disappointed in you. Men are still far too dominant for their own good, and consequently we’ve made a testosterone-sodden pig’s ear of just about everything: politics, the economy, religion, the environment … you name it, it’s in a gigantic man-wrought mess.
Charlie Brooker
It’s not a question of doing the best thing for the environment – the best thing for the environment is for people to stop using vast amounts of energy.
Mike Hulme
In an urban environment, a church building is a thing of the past.
Mark Batterson
The river has taught me to listen; you will learn from it, too. The river knows everything; one can learn everything from it. You have already learned from the river that it is good to strive downwards, to sink, to seek the depths.
Hermann Hesse
Early intervention programs enrich adverse family environments. The largest effects of the early intervention programs are on noncognitive traits. Now, what do I mean by that? I mean perseverance, motivation, self-esteem, and hard work.
James Heckman
There are serious worries about unconventional gas and oil, especially those concerning the environment.
Charles C. Mann
What I try to do is give each actor an environment in which they can do their best work.
Curtis Hanson
The nature of the global business environment guarantees that no matter how hard we work to create a stable and healthy organisation, our organisation will continue to experience dramatic changes far beyond our control.
Margaret J. Wheatley
Until the end of elementary school, I lived in a suburban area, so the type of village I used to live in is borderline between village and the city, so I’m familiar with the rustic environment.
Bong Joon-ho
When you live around a working-class environment, you see what sports means to people. You see that it’s the escape over the weekend. you see how they build their lives around it. People sort of want to get away from their lives.
Joe Posnanski
The Kyoto Protocol…the first component of an authentic global governance.
Jacques Chirac
The worst thing to call somebody is crazy. It’s dismissive. “I don’t understand this person. So they’re crazy.” That’s bullshit. These people are not crazy. They strong people. Maybe their environment is a little sick.
Dave Chappelle
I thought the idea of ‘Smurfs’ lent itself to the 3-D environment pretty well, I think, better than some of the farm animal movies that have been done before. I was a fan of the ‘Smurfs’ and they come with their own fan base, which I thought was nice.
Neil Patrick Harris
Words are chameleons, which reflect the color of their environment.
Learned Hand
As a species, we create tools to control our environment. What excites my imagination is wilderness: our materials’ ability to escape our control.
James Arthur
The Full Sail crowd, it’s a pretty unique and a pretty distinct environment. It’s very close quarters and a bit more of what I’m used to from my days on the independents. But the truth is, I sometimes think that it’s harder to win over a small crowd sometimes than it is to win over a big crowd.
Sami Zayn
I felt like I was homeless anyway, so the change in environment wasn’t that much of a big deal. I felt pretty much the same. After six months of living on the streets [in Camden], I started singing, busking.
Benjamin Clementine
We have wished, we eco-freaks, for a disaster or for a social change to come and bomb us into Stone Age, where we might live like Indians in our valley, with our localism, our appropriate technology, our gardens, our homemade religion-guilt-free at last!
Stewart Brand
Trees are your best antiques
Alexander Smith
Humanity is on the march, earth itself is left behind.
David Ehrenfeld
A town is saved, not more by the righteous men in it, than by the woods and swamps that surround it.
Henry David Thoreau
Cheap food is an illusion. There is no such thing as cheap food. The real cost of the food is paid somewhere. And if it isn’t paid at the cash register, it’s charged to the environment or to the public purse in the form of subsidies. And it’s charged to your health.
Michael Pollan
I wanted to study painting and become a painter, but I had a huge flip-over in my life when I was about 18 or 19. I was part of a criminal environment; I got arrested and convicted, and I had to start thinking in a new way.
Aksel Hennie
For the first two weeks of filming, I remember bristling at some of the occurrences on the set, none of which directly involved me. Then I surrendered to the environment, to Michael’s method, and became much happier, even though no one knew what to expect.
Madeleine Stowe
Your environment will eat your goals and plans for breakfast.
Steve Pavlina
Unlike the urban development that I see taking over and swallowing up our precious soil, when we interact with our environment in a way that allows for regeneration and natural spaces, the outcome can be beautiful.
Cory Trepanier
LA can be a very open and accepting creative environment. But it is important, because there is this odd separation here, it is important to make your kids mindful of other people and other people’s plight.
Ryan Phillippe
Innovations that are guided by smallholder farmers, adapted to local circumstances, and sustainable for the economy and environment will be necessary to ensure food security in the future.
Bill Gates
Well, I have my own article on where the heck is global warming?…The fact is that we can’t account for the lack of warming at the moment and it is a travesty that we can’t.
Kevin E. Trenberth
Genes are not simple triggers. No one is hardwired to commit murder or any other crime. Our actions are always the result of stupendously complex gene-environment interactions, and environment is likely to remain the more important influence by far.
William Landay
Cuba cannot go back to capitalism; we know all the tragic experience that it has generated for Latin America and the world. We also know the positive experiences of socialism not only in our geographic environment but also like what we are witnessing in China.
Alejandro Castro Espin
Apple has never allowed ad-blocking software on the iPhone or iPad. This is one among many reasons that I ditched both. Not because I hate ads all that passionately, but because it’s an example of the obsessive corporate control Apple maintains over its environment.
Kevin Drum
The conservation of nature, the proper care for the human environment and a general concern for the long-term future of the whole of our planet are absolutely vital if future generations are to have a chance to enjoy their existence on this earth.
Prince Philip
I think I was quite lucky in that I went to an all-girls school. I was never put in an environment where I had to be the other – the woman as opposed to the man – all the way through my education. I was never made to feel that way at home.
Romola Garai
work is elevated by our daily environment into something that is appropriately done everywhere and at every conceivable moment.
Sally Helgesen
I grew up in an environment in Birmingham that was really multicultural, with black kids, Irish kids, Indian kids.
David Harewood
Out of all those millions and millions of planets floating around there in space, this is our planet, this is our little one, so we just got to be aware of it and take care of it.
Paul McCartney
Human beings and the environment compose a seamless garment of existence, a multicolored cloth, which we believe to be woven in its entirety by God.
People who minister worldwide to protect and conserve the environment are of no lower status than those who minister to plant churches.
Leonard Sweet
An inanimate being is, of course, continuous with its surroundings; but the environing circumstances do not, save metaphorically, constitute an environment. For the inorganic being is not concerned in the influences which affect it.
John Dewey
In poor environment, I find great inspiration. Many of the men and women whom I admire as artists, the things they write, the songs they sing, the admission is filled with inspired moments to overcome oppression.
Harry Belafonte
We all, parents, educators, community leaders, and every… citizen, need to come together to find new ways to engage children with the natural environment.
Laura Bush
CAFE standards have little impact on greenhouse gas emissions, and the environmental benefits of increasing CAFE standards are frequently overstated. Their impact on human health is more certain: CAFE standards have resulted in tens of thousands of deaths since their adoption.
Amy Ridenour
The most frustrating things is when you read something that has so much potential, but there are other little red flags where you think, I don’t know that I would see eye-to-eye with the people making this film. And that is the worst environment to enter, and absolutely not worth the risk.
Anna Kendrick
Nature provides a free lunch, but only if we control our appetites.
William Ruckelshaus
I have always thought the actions of men the best interpreters of their thoughts.
John Locke
In other words, we are interested in the anatomical and mental characteristics of men living under the same biological, geographical, and social environment, and as determined by their past.
Franz Boas
You put a very talented kid in a structured environment, where they get to understand and believe how talented they are, and you’ll see some great results.
Donovan Bailey
New York is hard, cynical, ruthless, even beyond other cities. From their early repression its children emerge sophisticated, both stunted and overdeveloped, perverted, premature, forced by the artificiality of their environment.
Ernest Gruening
You cannot protect the environment unless you empower people, you inform them, and you help them understand that these resources are their own, that they must protect them.
Wangari Maathai
Higher education should provide an environment to test new ideas, debate theories, encounter challenging information, and figure out what one believes.
Kirsten Powers
Philosophers of biology generally recognize that evolutionary fitness (roughly, an organism’s ability to survive and reproduce in its environment) is multiply realizable.
Elliott Sober
… social environment in childhood affects achieved adult height, life chances, and ultimately mortality rates in adult life. (…) … social circumstances acting in childhood do have a persisting effect on adult disease rates, in addition to influences acting in adulthood.
Michael Marmot
Once you see the boundaries of your environment, they are no longer the boundaries of your environment.
Marshall McLuhan
Rapping’s a release of the good and the bad – that’s the definition of hyphy. You can’t be like that, you can’t get hyphy in, like, a business environment. I can be me. I’m energy. Hyphy is energy.
Keak da Sneak
Climate change will affect the basic elements of life for people around the world – access to water, food production, health, and the environment. Hundreds of millions of people could suffer hunger, water shortages and coastal flooding as the world warms.
Nicholas Stern
I would like to ask all those who have positions of responsibility in economic, political and social life, and all men and women of goodwill: let us be ‘protectors’ of creation, protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment.
Pope Francis
I’m not an ascetic and please don’t use the word zen, which is so lightly bandied about these days. Being zen . . . It’s shameful to talk in such a way. I haven’t become an ascetic but I’m not going to build up another collection. I’m going to create my new environment. I already know what I want.
Pierre Berge
Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren’t used to an environment where excellence is expected.
Steve Jobs
I’m not an environmentalist. I’m an Earth warrior.
Darryl Cherney
We are losing our environment so rapidly.
Stefanie Powers
We have the ability to completely change our environment to go… to take on… to inherit, in a certain sense, things far beyond our DNA, and that’s inheritable. And we can see evolution in action as our ideas evolve and undergo a kind of Darwinian selection not at the DNA level. And we can go off into space.
George M. Church
Don’t blend in; instead, clash with your environment. Stand out. Be different. That’s what will draw attention to your ideas. Nothing has intrinsic attention-grabbing power by itself. The power lies in how much something stands out from its context.
Nancy Duarte
Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it.
Henry David Thoreau
I was always the kid who could draw. I had this talent, and it was the one thing that gave me some kind of dignity in the midst of my personal environment.
Thomas Kinkade
Am I a control freak? No. Do I believe in organization? You bet. In discipline? In being on time and making sure everything at the hotel is ready and right? Definitely. I don’t control players. I try to control the environment around the players so they can flourish.
Pat Riley
The only type of men Julia’s mother had warned her about were wealthy industrialist who polluted the environment and took advantage of third-world countries. And Republilicans.
Cathie Linz
The environment can actually affect gene expression.
Michael Marmot
A being whose activities are associated with others has a social environment. What he does and what he can do depend upon the expectations, demands, approvals, and condemnations of others.
John Dewey
We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam constructions, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of previously settled land.
David Foreman
“…The large majority of those infectious microbes that cause us so much illness and pain are ANAEROBIC…a big word that means they live and proliferate best in environments where there is LITTLE OR NO OXYGEN.”
Ed McCabe
The message from Wal-Mart today to the rest of the business community is there need not be any conflict between the environment and the economy. We will find the way not only to reconcile (those), but to find new profits and new opportunities as we do the right thing.
Al Gore
With respect to the environment in our state and our state’s future – in addition to water which is very important here – I think it is crucial for him to make a sincere commitment to energy efficiency, fuel efficiency, by helping us to produce those cars of the future
Jennifer Granholm
Go to bed when summers ends, what a good idea; wake up bright and early when birds announce its spring.
Francis Norris, 1st Earl of Berkshire
It’s good to feel excited by the environment you’re in.
PJ Harvey
The fundamental problem for Republicans when it comes to the environment is that whatever you say is viewed through the prism of suspicion.
Frank Luntz
I know who made the environment and he’s coming back and going to burn it all up. So yes, I drive an SUV.
Mark Driscoll
Development requires modification and transformation of the environment… the planet’s capacity to support its people us being irreversibly reduced by the destruction and degradation of the biosphere and the need to understand the problem and take corrective action is becoming urgent.
Malcolm Fraser
I find it striking that the quality of the urban habitat of homo sapieans is so weakly researched compared to the habitats of gorillas, elephants, and Bengal tigers and panda bears in China…you hardly see anything on the habitat of man in the urban environment.
Jan Gehl
I look forward to an America which will not be afraid of grace and beauty, which will protect the beauty of our natural environment, which will preserve the great old American houses and squares and parks of our national past and which will build handsome and balanced cities for our future.
John F. Kennedy
In the 1970′s I made horses out of real mud and sticks. They were, in part, meant to reflect how much a horse is part of his environment. I combined the figure and the ground.
Deborah Butterfield
You know, I like to think that I will subscribe very much to the core Republican principles of small government. Making a small number of rules and getting out of the way. Keeping taxes low. Creating an environment for small businesses to grow and thrive.
Meg Whitman
I really don’t know what makes a comedian. I think it’s a family background and environment. Yet if you put the same ingredients in another person, he may never utter a funny line.
Bob Newhart
We decided long ago that we didn’t want Chipotle’s success to be tied to the exploitation of animals, farmers, or the environment, but the engagement of our customers.
Steve Ells
God made life simple. It is man who complicates it.
Charles Lindbergh
Now I truly believe that we in this generation must come to terms with nature, and I think we’re challenged, as mankind has never been challenged before, to prove our maturity and our mastery, not of nature but of ourselves.
Rachel Carson
Shyness is the fear of social disapproval or humiliation, while introversion is a preference for environments that are not overstimulating. Shyness is inherently painful; introversion is not.
Susan Cain
Language from songs and TV shows feel integral because it helps to create the environment and describe the full picture.
Morgan Parker
I think that is a universal adolescent feeling, trying to find your place. The adolescent who is perfectly adjusted to his environment, I’ve yet to meet.
Roger Bannister
Lisa: ‘Do we have any food that wasn’t brutally slaughtered?’ Homer: ‘Well, I think the veal died of loneliness.’
Matt Groening
So no, it’s not all in the genes, but what isn’t in the genes isn’t in the family environment either. It can’t be explained in terms of the overall personalities or the child-rearing practices of parents.
Steven Pinker
So that we focus not on competing visions for Europe but on what Europe can do to improve economic growth, to give us a cleaner environment, to create more jobs, to make us more secure.
John Hutton
As a whole part of “psychological education” it needs to be remembered that a neurosis can be valuable; also that “adjustment” to a sick and insane environment is of itself not “health” but sickness and insanity.
James Agee
In my early life my mother tried to create a nurturing environment in which my mind could play. Her big rule was “Never lose in your imagination.” She told me that thoughts were things and that I would become the thing I thought of most. This kind of empowerment is crucial to creative thinking.
Joey Reiman
We will look upon the earth and her sister planets as being with us, not for us.
Mary Daly
Reading, conversation, environment, culture, heroes, mentors, nature – all are lottery tickets for creativity. Scratch away at them and you’ll find out how big a prize you’ve won.
Twyla Tharp
I recognize the need for technology that enriches life while preserving our natural environment. My goal is to stimulate productivity, but use technology to redeem, not to destroy our environment.
Gerald R. Ford
Environmental quality was drastically improved while economic activity grew by the simple expedient of removing lead from gasoline – which prevented it from entering the environment.
Barry Commoner
I can find God in nature, in animals, in birds and the environment.
Pat Buckley
My preferred environment is by the sea or somewhere rural. I don’t want to be in a city, I don’t want to visit New York and I don’t want to go shopping.
Amanda Donohoe
Art is a harmony parallel with nature.
Paul Cezanne
My father died when I was nine, but I came from a stable family environment, which I think does contribute to being well-behaved.
Robert Winston
If the salmon and steelhead are running, then as far as I am concerned, God knows that all is well in His worldthe health of the environment is good if the salmon and steelhead are around. It is that simple.
Tom McCall
It gave a tremendous level of self-confidence, that through exploration and learning one could understand seemingly very complex things in one’s environment.
Steve Jobs
The American work environment has to change, not the women. We should be recognizing that what women are not fitting into is a very narrow, male-dominated workplace of the 1950s.
Anne-Marie Slaughter
I have a very strong record on the Environment in the United States Senate.
Dan Quayle
I think today we recognize that economic activity needs to search for ways to protect the environment.
Gale Norton
Our attitude is the environment we carry with us during the day. It proclaims to the world what we think of ourselves and indicates the sort of person we have made up our minds to be. It is the person we will become. How’s your attitude today?
Bob Proctor
Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, everything is softer and more beautiful.
Norman Vincent Peale
We’re failing our children with education, we’re failing our environment.
Carol Moseley Braun
I grew up in a very masculine environment. So I was around a lot of men, my brothers and their friends. There was just a lot of guys around.
Alanis Morissette
Good food is a right, not a privilege. It brings children into a positive relationship with their health, community and environment.
Alice Waters
When I watch like The Office I’m fascinated because most of America works in an environment where they see the same eight people every day.
Jay Mohr
Competition is key to developing players. The only practice environment in which you truly develop a player is a competitive arena.
Anson Dorrance
Economy without ecology means managing the human nature relationship without knowing the delicate balance between humankind and the natural world
Satish Kumar
Man-made global warming was a potential serious threat, and NASA wanted Congress to fund new satellites to study the problem. It was a team effort to get that accomplished.
Roy Spencer
It’s great that we can, however subtly, offer important lessons through cartoons that it’s important to protect the environment.
Michael T. Weiss
To people who think of themselves as God’s houseguests, American enterprise must seem arrogant beyond belief. Or stupid. A nation of amnesiacs, proceeding as if there were no other day but today. Assuming the land could also forget what had been done to it.
Barbara Kingsolver
When we’ve ceased hearing or changing, we need a new environment.
Beth Moore
Social organizations are flagrantly open systems in that the input of energies and the conversion of output into further energetic input consists of transactions between the organization and its environment.
Daniel Katz
I am very concerned about the environment and psychological health of this beautiful planet.
Cornel Wilde
In America today you can murder land for private profit. You can leave the corpse for all to see, and nobody calls the cops.
Paul Brooks
Man’s heart away from nature becomes hard.
Standing Bear
Let us be renewed by God’s mercy … and let us become agents of this mercy, channels through which God can water the earth, protect all creation and make justice and peace flourish.
Pope Francis
I completely agree that place is the most emotionally resonant aspect of a story. Our environment affects us every bit as much as our relationships with other people. I love work that recognizes that.
Lucy Jane Bledsoe
Reasonable men adapt themselves to their environment; unreasonable men try to adapt their environment to themselves. Thus all progress is the result of the efforts of unreasonable men.
George Bernard Shaw
When I’m playing a serial killer, I’m in it. I’m not judging him. I’m not judging his environment. I’m just looking for the why. Why is he the way he is? But, there’s no doubt that, if you’re a good actor, you’re going to take this stuff home with you.
Dylan McDermott
My father asserted that there was no better place to bring up a family than in a rural environment…. There’s something about getting up at 5 a.m., feeding the stock and chickens, and milking a couple of cows before breakfast that gives you a lifelong respect for the price of butter and eggs.
Bill Vaughan
Education and the process of educating is a total integral, contextual situation which includes students, teachers, parents, administration and environment.
Jean Houston
Perhaps catastrophe is the natural human environment, and even though we spend a good deal of energy trying to get away from it, we are programmed for survival amid catastrophe.
Germaine Greer
The most unhappy thing about conservation is that it is never permanent. Save a priceless woodland or an irreplaceable mountain today, and tomorrow it is threatened from another quarter.
Hal Borland
Just having walked into a prison environment, sat there for two hours, the effect that it had on me. … I couldn’t imagine the effect it would have on a person 24 hours a day. So then I became more intrigued, and we began a correspondence, and I began visiting [Todd Willingham].
Elizabeth Gilbert
Mainly I’m a vegan because I like animals, and I don’t want to be involved in their suffering. Also, it’s better for my health and for the environment.
To be out of harmony with one’s surroundings is of course a misfortune, but it is not always a misfortune to be avoided at all costs. Where the environment is stupid or prejudiced or cruel, it is a sign of merit to be out of harmony with it.
Bertrand Russell
In the development business doing something for both women and the environment is the equivalent of holding a royal flush in poker.
Abhijit Banerjee
Entrepreneurship is the engine fuelling innovation, employment generation and economic growth. Only by creating an environment where entrepreneur- ship can prosper and where entrepreneurs can try new ideas and empower others can we ensure that many of the world’s issues will not go unaddressed.
Klaus Schwab
In 1995, I founded The Molecular Sciences Institute with a gift from the Philip Morris Company where I hoped that we could create an environment where young people could pursue science in an atmosphere of harmonious purpose and high intellectual challenge.
Sydney Brenner
Today we have a temporary aberration called “industrial capitalism” which is inadvertently liquidating its two most important sources of capital, the natural world and properly functioning societies.
No sensible capitalist would do that.
Amory Lovins
Each generation exercises power over its successors: and each, in so far as it modifies the environment bequeathed to it and rebels against tradition, resists and limits the power of its predecessors.
C. S. Lewis
When you go back to your environment and you deal with employees… do you inspire people or do you make them feel fear? Do you make them feel confident or incompetent? I think that distinction really marks the leader.
Liz Murray
It may be said that the basic characteristic of human behavior in general is that humans personally influence their relations with the environment and through that environment personally change their behavior, subjugating it to their control.
Lev S. Vygotsky
We can only truly be civilised people when we have regular and meaningful contact with the wild world
Simon Barnes
As in any technological revolution, there will be winners and losers. On balance, everyone will come out ahead, although there will be particular companies that will not be able to cope with a new environment.
Ralph Merkle
We never know the worth of water till the well is dry.
Thomas Fuller
For the good of our environment, the good of the economy, and the good of the Nation, I strongly urge support of the upper Mississippi locks and dams project.
Leonard Boswell
When you’re in a competitive environment, always give out the impression that you don’t care. It makes people want you more. If you act desperate, it’s over. I think a passive attitude is helpful. It comes naturally because I’m lazy.
Diablo Cody
Business and the environment: Wasting resources costs the earth – and lowers your competitive edge
Phil Harding
When you talk to crews that went to Mir or have gone up to International Space Station, they say that you go through different phases of adaptation or getting used to the space environment.
Laurel Clark
There’s been a false sense of security in the American people when it comes to environment issues and our water, because they believe that the EPA is there to protect us, and unfortunately, that system’s not working right now. They’re overburdened, understaffed, and underfunded.
Erin Brockovich
I’m doing my work in an environment that’s ultimately about dollars and cents.
Marguerite Moreau
They’ve destroyed their environment, by and large. They’ve eliminated most other species on the planet, which is just an indication of their sloppiness and their deadness and their oblivion – but even more so, they’ve cut themselves off from happiness.
Frederick Lenz
So many people grew up with challenges, as I did. There weren’t always happy things happening to me or around me. But when you look at the core of goodness within yourself – at the optimism and hope – you realize it comes from the environment you grew up in.
Sonia Sotomayor
Popular religion is a coping mechanism for the anxieties of a dysfunctional social and economic environment.
Gregory S. Paul
It’s been said that government doesn’t create jobs, business does. For the most part, this is true. But government creates the environment in which businesses can excel and expand.
Christine Gregoire
Energy consumption matters both to our environment and our economy.
John Baldacci
Observations of the sickening effect of programmed environments show that people in them become indolent, impotent, narcissistic and apolitical. The political process breaks down, because people cease to be able to govern themselves; they demand to be managed.
Ivan Illich
I feel a desperation to make people see what we are doing to the environment, what a mess we are making of our world. At this point, the more people I reach, the more I accomplish. … I miss Gombe and my wonderful years in the forest But if I were to go back to that, I wouldn’t feel I was doing what I should be doing.
Jane Goodall
Are we at some kind of evolutionary equipoise as a species? Or, are we destined to become something different – something, perhaps, even better adapted to the environment?
Harvey V. Fineberg
Every mujahadeen who comes in from outside the country finds an environment where Arabic is spoken. So in that sense, it’s a tremendous come-on for the young in Islam. But I think much more important is, it just validates so much of what the Muslim world is predisposed to believe.
Michael Scheuer
The societies of consumption and squandering of material resources are incompatible with the idea of economic growth and a clean planet.
Fidel Castro
The normal routine is always the same thing whether it’s on a new movie or a new job – there’s always a process of getting to know one another. I think part of what makes movies special is that it is a relatively intimate environment and it’s pretty short-lived – you get to know one another very quickly.
Adrien Brody
Human civilization has been changing the Earths environment for millennia, often to our detriment. Dams, deforestation and urbanization can alter water cycles and wind patterns, occasionally triggering droughts or even creating deserts.
Jamais Cascio
By creating false environment of a war on drugs, and cruel and unusual punishment with these crimes, 50% of our U.S. population is in jail without having hurt anybody, mostly for drugs.
Oliver Stone
The very process of living is a continual interplay between the individual and his environment, often taking the form of a struggle resulting in injury or disease.
Rene Dubos
GM is operating in an intensely competitive global environment and reaching this tentative agreement allows us to continue to build momentum in the market with the award-winning vehicles and components produced in Canada.
Al Green
The difference between a serial killer and a saint is environment. That’s a very hard thing to accept because that raises a lot of questions
Jacque Fresco
I think it is manmade. I think it’s clearly manmade. If you don’t understand what the cause is, it’s virtually impossible to come up with a solution. We know what the cause is. The cause is manmade. That’s the cause. That’s why the polar icecap is melting.
Joe Biden
I was adopted into this incredible home, a loving, positive environment, yet I had this yearning, this kind of darkness that was also inside me.
Faith Hill
Trait X is fitter than trait Y in a population of organisms if those organisms have other biological traits T and live in an environment that has properties E. The theory of natural selection is filled with statements of this form.
Elliott Sober
It’s such a stressful environment, I find, being an actor, being put in the chair and “Touch this, that, and the other,” it’s too much for me. I find it hard to tolerate that sort of stuff. If you’re not enjoying it, don’t do it. You’re wasting everyone’s time.
Paddy Considine
Man’s respect for the imponderables varies according to his mental constitution and environment. Through certain modes of thought and training, it can be elevated tremendously, yet there is always a limit.
H. P. Lovecraft
It is wonderful to work in an environment with a lot of smart people. It challenges you to think and work on a different level. If you play with better players, you learn a lot: perspectives, intellectual arguments, new ways of thinking about things.
Marissa Mayer
Nineteen sixty-eight was one exciting moment in a much larger movement. It spawned a whole range of movements. There wouldn’t have been an international global solidarity movement, for instance, without the events of 1968. It was enormous, in terms of human rights, ethnic rights, a concern for the environment, too.
Noam Chomsky
Excellent outcomes with much lower intervention rates are achieved at home births. This may be because the overuse of interventions in hospital births introduces risks or the home environment promotes problem-free labors.
Henci Goer
Just because our work environment is crazy doesn’t mean we need to bring the craziness home.
Brie Bella
The business of art is to reveal the relation between man and his environment.
D. H. Lawrence
In nature nothing exists alone.
Rachel Carson
Dig a trench through a landfill and you will see layers of phone books like geographical strata or layers of cake…. During a recent landfill dig in Phoenix, I found newspapers dating from 1952 that looked so fresh you might read one over breakfast.
William Rathje
LTO ultrium is adaptable and scalable backup tape format and its technology is continuously enhanced by its manufacturers to address the growing needs and requirements of the server environments of midrange to the enterprise class.
Sean Paul
Not only has photography so thoroughly saturated our visual environment as to make the invention of visual images seem archaic, but it is also clear that photography is too multiple, too useful to other discourses, ever to be wholly contained within traditional definitions of art.
Douglas Crimp
Think about spam filters; if email didnt come from someone that someone you know knows, thats an important signal, and one we could embed in the environment; we just dont. I just want the world to be filtered through my social graph.
Clay Shirky
In my book Radical Reform I made it clear that we cannot talk about the environment or ecology if we don’t also deal with the economy. There is a direct link between how we deal with the economy and how we deal with nature.
Tariq Ramadan
The message of Jesus has proved ineffective because the environment was unready to receive it.
Mahatma Gandhi
Accuse not nature: she hath done her part; Do thou but thine.
John Milton
Transmitted at the speed of light, all events on this planet are simultaneous. In the electric environment of information all events are simultaneous, there is no time or space separating events.
Marshall McLuhan
The responsibility of leadership is not to come up with all the ideas but to create an environment in which great ideas can thrive.
Simon Sinek
Without individuals feeling safe and having an environment of safety, they then have reluctance of taking part in the city of being active. They wind up wanting to leave the city. That’s more detrimental.
Dick Powell
It would be unwise to say the least, irresponsible of us at the TSA, at the Homeland Security Department not to evolve our technology to match the changing threat environment that we inhabit.
Janet Napolitano
Our lives are the results of our choices. To blame and accuse other people, the environment, or other extrinsic factors is to choose to empower those things to control us.
Stephen Covey
Tibetans must take full authority and responsibility for developing industry, looking from all different perspectives, taking care of the environment, conserving resources for long-term economic health, and safeguarding the interests of Tibetan workers, nomads, and farmers.
Dalai Lama
A sustainable agriculture is one which depletes neither the people nor the land.
Wendell Berry
I grew up at the beach and I was always involved in beach clean-ups and caring for my environment.
Lauren Conrad
The future economic success of Silicon Valley will be contingent on whether we have a good quality of life. World-class workers will only want to come to a world-class living environment.
Carl Guardino
Later scientific theories are better than earlier ones for solving puzzles in the often quite different environments to which they are applied. That is not a relativist’s position, and it displays the sense in which I am a convinced believer in scientific progress.
Thomas Kuhn
Interfacing street sculpture in public space creates an installation environment that turns regular space into art space. Signs and people and everything around a street sculpture-they all become part of it. A two-dimensional work, being confined to surfaces, doesn’t have as much of a capacity.
Mark Jenkins
Permaculture is a design system for creating sustainable human environments…Permaculture uses the inherent qualities of plants and animals combined with the natural characteristics of landscapes and structures to produce a life supporting system for city and country, using the smallest practical area.
Bill Mollison
There is in the darkness a unity, if you will, that cannot be achieved in any other environment, a blending of self with what the self perceives, and exquisite mystical experience.
Bernard Malamud
At the bottom of the ocean, bacteria that are thermophilic and can survive at the steam vent heat that would otherwise produce, if fish were there, sous-vide cooked fish, nevertheless, have managed to make that a hospitable environment for them.
Harvey V. Fineberg
Reality is harsh. It can be cruel and ugly. Yet no matter how much we grieve over our environment and circumstances nothing will change. What is important is not to be defeated, to forge ahead bravely. If we do this, a path will open before us.
Daisaku Ikeda
The stability of the internal medium is a primary condition for the freedom and independence of certain living bodies in relation to the environment surrounding them.
Claude Bernard
You can only get really unpopular decisions through if the electorate is convinced of the value of the environment. That’s what natural history programmes should be for.
David Attenborough
We need a race to the top so that we have policies and regulations that protect human rights, the environment and that reduce poverty.
Winnie Byanyima
Don’t change the man. Change his environment.
R. Buckminster Fuller
We tend to put the environment last because we think the first thing we have to do is eliminate poverty and send children to school and provide health.
Wangari Maathai
Baroque sculpture and interior design has a quality of creating an environment that seems organic because it’s full of curves and details, like a forest.
Camille Henrot
No part of the world can be truly understood without a knowledge of its garment of vegetation, for this determines not only the nature of the animal inhabitants but also the occupations of the majority of human beings.
Ellsworth Huntington
Customary though it may be to write about that institutionalized pastime as though it existed apart from the general environment, my story does not lend itself to such treatment.
Curt Flood
It will not matter, the pressure I always had it, I was mediated early, I learned to handle it, I got used to it and it’s part of my environment.
Kylian Mbappe
I love actors and I love to create an environment where they feel safe to connect and thrive and try things, to fail and succeed and flourish and fly.
Adriana Trigiani
This is what I love about the Kimberley… wild gorges, fresh water and there’s always a chance of a barra taking your lure.
Malcolm Douglas
We create an environment where it is alright to hate, to steal, to cheat, and to lie if we dress it up with symbols of respectability, dignity and love.
Whitney M. Young
If you have a clean environment, you will have a healthy atmosphere. This will make you happy and your happiness will bring joy to your parents and it will affect the community, too. Then there will be peace of mind to one and all.
Oren Lyons
What I really think is going to happen over time is technology is going to change the way we live for the good for the environment.
George W. Bush
It is important to recognize that behind the razzmatazz of consumerism, we all remain dependent on basic natural resources – land, air, water and biodiversity – for every product and service. There can be no free lunch on the environment.
Klaus Topfer
Mos Def is a name that I built and cultivated over the years. It’s a name that the streets taught me, a figure of speech that was given to me by the culture and by my environment.
Mos Def
man … thinks of himself as a creator instead of a user, and this delusion is robbing him, not only of his natural heritage, but perhaps of his future.
Ellen Sturgis Hooper
No matter how deeply disturbing the thought of using the environment to manipulate behavior for national advantages to some, the technology permitting such use will very probably develop within the next few decades.
Zbigniew Brzezinski
Strive not to be a success, but rather to be of value.
Albert Einstein
We have to build the capacity of our institutions, employees and workers. Our regulatory environment has not been encouraging to research, innovation and enterprise.
Narendra Modi
Climate change has been immense difficulties of pains or illness or hard life on this planet. So through that way, you have sense of concern of the well being, not sky, not just the environment itself.
Dalai Lama
Take charge of your environment.
Marshall Sylver
We must guard against the overreaching hand of big government trying to take away our freedom. And we must always protect the environment in a manner consistent with our values
Steve Forbes
I think we need more love in the world. We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that.
Ellen DeGeneres
My mind was always very cluttered, so I took great pains to simplify my environment, because if my environment were half as cluttered as my mind, I wouldn’t be able to make it from room to room. This system has just worked for me, even though I’ve had to sweat over every word. It’s just my style.
Leonard Cohen
It became very important for me to stand up and design with a conscience for environment, you know? Just because you like clothes doesn’t mean that you have to throw your principles out the window.
Maria Cornejo
Clutter forces the brain to consume energy. Create uncluttered environments instead.
Carmine Gallo
Positive work environments outperform negative work environments.
Daniel Goleman
He who knows he has enough is rich.
The future is better than the past. Despite the crepe hangers, romanticists, and anti-intellectuals, the world steadily grows better because the human mind, applying itself to environment, makes it better. With hands … with tools … with horse sense and science and engineering.
Robert A. Heinlein
A workplace that encourages self-awareness is an environment where the most productive, curious, and innovative people thrive.
Neil Blumenthal
According to new research emerging from many quarters that our continued devotion to growth above all is, on balance, making our lives worse, both collectively and individually
Bill McKibben
I’m all about living however you want, but if you make the decision to get married and have children, then you have an obligation to raise them in an environment that isn’t going to ruin them, warp their perception of the world, or close doors for them.
Dan Bilzerian
I found university a little dispiriting. I thought I would enter the great halls of Plato, but instead I entered the halls of an intellectual sausage factory. I wanted to do something not on the main course, and chose the environment.
Bjorn Lomborg
The client isn’t quite satisfied and then the prostitute is always unsatisfied but is doing it just to make ends meet. And if you’re doing fine art, if you’re doing it for a gallery or a museum, it’s so sterilized. It’s such an antiseptic environment.
Eric Drooker
I’ve never worked as hard as when I was at drama school. It’s the most professional environment I’ve ever been in.
James McAvoy
What reminds you in your environment about saving? Nothing.
Dan Ariely
Awareness is becoming acquainted with environment, no matter where one happens to be.
Sigurd F. Olson
The battered idealist. It’s just my favorite character … To me, a hero is somebody who is able to accept the environment of the world, deal with the stuff that’s thrown in their path … and somehow keep their heart.
Cameron Crowe
I have never seen a river that I could not love. Moving water… has a fascinating vitality. It has power and grace and associations. It has a thousand colors and a thousand shapes, yet it follows laws so definite that the tiniest streamlet is an exact replica of a great river.
Roderick Haig-Brown
A thing is right when it tends to preserve the integrity, stability and beauty of the biotic community. It is wrong when it tends otherwise.
Aldo Leopold
Leadership is creating an environment in which people want to be part of the organization and not just work for the organization. Leadership creates an environment that makes people want to, rather than have to, do.
Horst Schulze
Rather than risk starting their own businesses, most people seek safer environments, preferring job security to freedom and a steady paycheck to greater wealth. Their fear of failing is greater than the joy of freedom.
Robert Kiyosaki
The war being fought in Afghanistan and Iraq is bringing about a fundamental change to the environment that has given rise and power to the extremists who export terrorism.
Craig L. Thomas
There’s a hell of a lot of freedom in this rock and roll circus… it’s where all the freaks go – it’s the environment for me.
Brian Molko
The premise of the Taker story is ‘the world belongs to man’. … The premise of the Leaver story is ‘man belongs to the world’.
Daniel Quinn
It is necessary, in this world, to be made of harder stuff than one’s environment.
Aleister Crowley
I don’t think I could ever work in such a blatantly hierarchical corporate setting. I know that everyone in this world is not equal, but I can’t bear environments that make this truth so obvious.
Peter Cameron
Nature doesn’t see things through the prism of good or bad. It rewards efficiency. That is the simplicity of evolution, matching design to environment.
Blake Crouch
It appears to be a law that you cannot have a deep sympathy with both man and nature.
Henry David Thoreau
I don’t know what I think of George W. Bush when he first got in, but I’ve grown fond of the man, and maybe it’s the times we live in. They say he’s not an environmentalist. But every time I see his ranch on TV, it looks pretty nice. You know something, if we all took care of our own, we’d have a great environment.
Dennis Miller
Even in the vast and mysterious reaches of the sea we are brought back to the fundamental truth that nothing lives to itself.
Rachel Carson
Never before has man had such a great capacity to control his own environment, to end hunger, poverty and disease, to banish illiteracy and human misery. We have the power to make the best generation of mankind in the history of the world.
John F. Kennedy
If Unix could present the same face, the same capabilities, on machines of many different types, it could serve as a common software environment for all of them.
Eric S. Raymond
History has proven time and again that downturns are the best time to invest in new start-ups. You get good deals and find a better environment for start-ups to grow.
Steve Jurvetson
When forced, as it seems, by your environment to be utterly disquieted, return with all speed into your self, staying in discord no longer than you must. By constant recurrence to the harmony, you will gain more command over it.
Marcus Aurelius
So I came from an environment where I was starved for information, starved for connection.
Marc Andreessen
The IPCC doesn’t do any research itself. We only develop our assessments on the basis of peer-reviewed literature.
Rajendra K. Pachauri
One must maintain a little bittle of summer, even in the middle of winter.
Henry David Thoreau
Climate change is real and it is caused to a significant extent by human activity.
Julia Gillard
We have to create more and more vegetarians, and help people to understand that it is not only the suffering of the animals (which is what made me vegetarian) but also the incredible harm to the environment, the tremendous amount of greenhouse gas created by the whole vast machinery of intensive animal farming.
Jane Goodall
In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.
We don’t think of ourselves as do-gooders or altruists. It’s just that somehow we’re trying our best to be run with some sense of moral compass even in a business environment that is growing.
Craig Newmark
A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. I’m not one though who would attribute it to being man-made.
Sarah Palin
The leader needs to create an environment in which people can analyze the situation and develop a good response.
Bill Gates
We must get government out of the way and help foster an environment where small businesses are free to grow and create jobs.
Sam Graves
The job of senior management is to cultivate an environment where store managers can learn from the market and from each other.
Sam Walton
Hollywood has to appeal to the broadest audience, and when it comes to most social and economic issues, America is progressive. Because of that, the messages that are in Hollywood movies tend to be, for instance, pro-environment.
Adam McKay
I gave (my drivers) three things: a sense of optimism, a creative environment, and the ultimate motivator-competition. By competing with each other in-house, we wound up beating our rivals.
Enzo Ferrari
Economics has been incurably growth-oriented and addicted to everybody growing richer, even at the cost of exhaustion of resources and pollution of the environment.
Kenneth E. Boulding
Also, it is interesting that developing countries, with China and India perhaps in the lead, where the future of the global environment will be decided are now on board with the case for sustainable development.
Maurice Strong
Because I come from that old-school optics environment, I know stuff about depth of field and camera movement and things that are not necessarily a part of the curriculum for people who started on a box and have never done anything that wasn’t on a box.
John Dykstra
You cannot escape the results of your thoughts. Whatever your present environment may be, you will fall, remain or rise with your thoughts, your vision, your ideal. You will become as small as your controlling desire; as great as your dominant aspiration.
James Lane Allen
The change I want to see is a start-up environment where everyone, regardless of gender and background, feels welcome and safe; where sexual harassment or discrimination will not impede great talent from producing great impact.
Christine Tsai
I think one thing that has helped me to be an entrepreneur is being an immigrant and coming to the United States. I had to basically build a new life for myself, and adjust very quickly to a new environment, new culture, learn a new language.
Anousheh Ansari
Being discontented, we either seek a different job or merely succumb to environment…instead of causing us to question life, the whole process of existence.
Jiddu Krishnamurti
In today’s regulatory environment, it’s virtually impossible to violate rules.
Bernard Madoff
We must adjust to changing times and still hold to unchanging principles.
Jimmy Carter
No one should voluntarily remain in an environment which prevents his development.
Orison Swett Marden
The ocean is a mighty harmonist.
William Wordsworth
I don’t care what town you’re born in, what city, what country. If you’re a child, you are curious about your environment. You’re overturning rocks. You’re plucking leaves off of trees and petals off of flowers, looking inside, and you’re doing things that create disorder in the lives of the adults around you.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Letting a maximum number of views be heard regularly is not just a nice philosophical notion. It is the best way any society has yet discovered to detect maladjustments quickly, to correct injustices, and to discover new ways to meet our continuing stream of novel problems that rise in a changing environment.
Ben Bagdikian
At a time when our planet is warming due to climate change, the last thing our environment needs is more drilling. What we need is for Congress and the White House to move toward clean energy such as solar, wind and geothermal.
Bernie Sanders
When things hurt us, we’re merely on our way to another spiritual environment.
Myrtle Reed
The problem with architecture is it goes with the territory, because it’s an applied art and because you’re messing about with people and their environment.
Peter Clewes
Mother is the dead heart of the family spending father’s earnings on consumer goods to enhance the environment in which he eats, sleeps, and watches the television.
Germaine Greer
The Internet, like all intellectual technologies has a trade off. As we train our brains to use it, as we adapt to the environment of the internet, which is an environment of kind of constant immersion and information and constant distractions, interruptions, juggling lots of messages, lots of bits of information.
Nicholas G. Carr
Common man has at long last got himself so far out of gear with nature and his environment that he is beginning to see the shape of extinction, whether he recognizes it as such or not.
Philip Wylie
The web is the ultimate customer-empowering environment. He or she who clicks the mouse gets to decide everything. It is so easy to go elsewhere; all the competitors in the world are but a mouseclick away.
Jakob Nielsen
The quality of life depends upon the ability of society to teach it’s members how to live in harmony with their environment-def ined first as family, then the community, then the world and its resources.
Ellen Swallow Richards
Fear, separation, hate and anger come from the wrong view that you and the Earth are two separate entities, the Earth is only the environment. You are in the centre and you want to do something for the Earth in order for you to survive. That is a dualistic way of seeing.
Nhat Hanh
If the protection of the environment involves costs, they should be justly distributed, taking due account of the different levels of development of various countries and the need for solidarity with future generations.
Pope Benedict XVI
I believe in Las Vegas. I think its best days are ahead of it. But I’m afraid to do anything in the current political environment in the United States.
Steve Wynn
It’s really wonderful to work in an environment with a lot of smart people.
Marissa Mayer
A government decision that slashes spending at the wrong time and sends a weak economy into a tailspin can be just as undisciplined as one that unleashes a wasteful spending spree in an overheated environment.
Peter Blair Henry
We assume that we’re masters of our environment, rather than being a part of it.
Tyrone Hayes
Any attempt to break with the past, or with existing social structures, is a failure if it leads to a bored, listless, and colourless style of life; assertive and enduring innovation, like the mastering of a new environment, requires the confidence and discipline which are founded on exuberant emotions.
John Carroll
It is the relationship between the physical environment and the environed organism, between physiography and ontography (to coin a term), that constitutes the essential principles of geography today.
William Morris Davis
It is senseless to blame others or your environment for your miseries. Change begins from the moment you muster the courage to act. When you change, the environment will change. The power to change the world is found nowhere but within our own life.
Daisaku Ikeda
People come into work and actually go home to their families. They want to go there and explore and have a good time, but they also want to go home, which is the best kind of working environment. You go in and do your job, and then you go home and enjoy your life.
Khandi Alexander
The American people today are involved in a warfare more deadly than the war in Vietnam, but few of them seem aware of it and even fewer of them are doing anything about it. This is a war that is being waged against the American environment, against our lands, air, and water, which are the basis of that environment.
Norman Cousins
Public education must be viewed from the lens of providing each child with the learning environment that best meets his or her needs. If we can send a low-income child to a parochial school, knowing that his odds of attending college will increase as a result, then that should be our mission.
Jeb Bush
Locally produced foods – defined as those harvested within a 100-mile radius of one’s home – have a lesser impact on the environment because of the decreased need for transportation from source to consumer.
Tyler Florence
As important as it is to change the light bulbs, its more important to change the laws
Al Gore
If you really want to define civilization it should be a culture that doesn’t destroy its environment. If you burn down the kitchen one day and expect to eat the next, it is not even intelligent, let alone civilized.
Natural selection is a theory of local adaptation to changing environments. It proposes no perfecting principles, no guarantee of general improvement
Stephen Jay Gould
We used to have just one criterion and that was profit, and then another criterion was added – social welfare. Now we have to add the third important criterion, and that is nature and the environment.
Mikhail Gorbachev
When it comes to female fan attention, I’m married, so obviously I avoid the places where you might get unwanted female attention – clubs and social environments, bars and public spaces.
Simon Bird
The better a work environment is, the better it is for the employer – not just the employee.
Nina Turner
It’s the perfect environment for prayer. Chanting in Greek is like a beautiful opera, but way better.
Troy Polamalu
Physics is perceived as a lonesome, nerdy kind of enterprise that has very little to do with human feelings and the things that excite people day-to-day about each other. Yet physicists in their own working environment are very social creatures.
Leonard Susskind
Leaving England was a painful decision, and we still have some regrets about it. However, at that time, the research environment for theoretical chemistry was clearly better in the U.S.
John Pople
If you are not vegan, please consider going vegan. It’s a matter of nonviolence. Being vegan is your statement that you reject violence to other sentient beings, to yourself, and to the environment, on which all sentient beings depend.
Gary L. Francione
When the earth is sick and polluted, human health is impossible…. To heal ourselves we must heal our planet, and to heal our planet we must heal ourselves.
Bobby McLeod
If you want to clean up the environment, start with your mind. It starts there!
Byron Katie
I believe everyone should have the same rights. They say gay marriage ruins families and hurts kids. Well, I’ve had the privilege of seeing my gay friends being parents and watching their kids grow up in a loving environment.
Brad Pitt
As a leader, these attributes – confidence, perseverance, work ethic and good sense – are all things I look for in people. I also try to lead by example and create an environment where good questions and good ideas can come from anyone.
Heather Bresch
Although two thirds of our planet is water, we face an acute water shortage. The water crisis is the most pervasive , most severe, and most invisible dimension of the ecological devastation of the earth.
Vandana Shiva
If man ever comes to perfect equilibrium with the environment, we’ll all be redundant, perhaps because you won’t need art or letters.
Peter O’Toole
I am I plus my surroundings; and if I do not preserve the latter, I do not preserve myself.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
Only to the white man was nature a ‘wilderness’.
Luther Standing Bear
It is a historical error for those who were not there to just refer to August 28th as ‘I Have a Dream’ speech day. That is a real disservice to those who were there. It was a sad day. It was not a celebration environment.
Jesse Jackson
The environment, what surrounds you, is so alive and delightful and complex.
David James Duncan
I think my perception of my own life is different and the fact that Lauren and myself are together. I’ve never felt this free or happy and so that permeates onto my onstage persona and to my working environment.
Rick Allen
What we need to do is ensure that we don’t create an environment that puts us on a track conceivably where the United States military finds itself in a civil military crisis with a commander in chief who would have us do illegal things.
John R. Allen
Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children. Do not let selfish men or greedy interests skin your country of its beauty, its riches or its romance.
Theodore Roosevelt
It seems to me that many writers, by virtue of environments of culture, art and education, slip into writing because of their environments.
Robert E. Howard
Trying to determine what is going on in the world by reading newspapers is like trying to tell the time by watching the second hand of a clock.
Ben Hecht
Character Education helps to create an environment for caring and learning in schools.
Thomas Lickona
Sing a song of seasons; something bright in all, flowers in the summer, fires in the fall.
Robert Louis Stevenson
Understanding the laws of nature does not mean that we are immune to their operations.
David Gerrold
A person’s health isn’t generally a reflection of genes, but how their environment is influencing them. Genes are the direct cause of less than 1pc of diseases: 99pc is how we respond to the world.
Bruce Lipton
The greatest danger hanging over our children and grandchildren is initiation of changes that will be irreversible on any time scale that humans can imagine.
James Hansen
Pigs and cows and chickens and people are all competing for grain.
Margaret Mead
The golden opportunity you are seeking is in yourself. It is not in your environment; it is not in luck or chance, or the help of others; it is in yourself alone.
Orison Swett Marden
Momentum is building for the creation of a shared future, one that is more egalitarian, inclusive, and respectful of the environment – a future that ultimately offers greater possibilities for personal development and control over our individual lives.
Isabelle Kocher
I believe that parents need to make nutrition education a priority in their home environment. It’s crucial for good health and longevity to instill in your children sound eating habits from an early age.
Cat Cora
I worked for Xerox for 4 years and after that I knew I was never going to be a corporate person. It wasn’t my environment.
Robert Kiyosaki
We refuse to share resources; we govern irresponsibly. If we are confident, if we have some of our cultural values, then we would be more committed to assisting our people out of poverty and creating an environment that can make it possible for our friends to assist us.
Wangari Maathai
Once-ler! You’re making such smogulous smoke – my poor swomee swans, why they can’t sing a note! No one can sing who has smog in his throat.
Dr. Seuss
When you present people with things from the heart and from the soul, they make better choices: They make better choices about their bodies, they make better choices about their partners, they make better choices about the environment.
Billy Corgan
It is Jazz’s very nature to change, to develop & adapt to the circumstances of its environment.
Pat Metheny
We are upsetting the atmosphere upon which all life depends. In the late 80s when I began to take climate change seriously, we referred to global warming as a “slowmotion catastrophe” one we expected to kick in perhaps generations later. Instead, the signs of change have accelerated alarmingly.
David Suzuki
You must understand the environment in Pakistan. This has become a moneymaking concern. A lot of people say if you want to go abroad and get a visa for Canada or citizenship and be a millionaire, get yourself raped.
Pervez Musharraf
SEINE, n. A kind of net for effecting an involuntary change of environment. For fish it is made strong and coarse, but women are more easily taken with a singularly delicate fabric weighted with small, cut stones.
Ambrose Bierce
The artist is the person who invents the means to bridge between biological inheritance and the environments created by technological innovation.
Marshall McLuhan
The combination of professionalism and technology may also result in narrow-minded specialization more suited to a debating society than to an organization whose task it is to cope with, and indeed live in, the dangerous and uncertain environment of war.
Martin Van Creveld
It isn’t pollution that’s harming the environment. It’s the impurities in our air and water that are doing it.
Dan Quayle
I think directors can be a little insensitive to how vulnerable an actor is, when he’s giving a performance. Part of the job of an actor is to invite scrutiny, but with that, the people around them have to nurture that and put them in an environment where they feel safe and they feel like they can risk something.
Eric Balfour
I love 5.1. Sometimes you can’t squeeze everything in comfortably into a stereo picture. There is a lot more space in a 5.1 environment.
Peter Gabriel
You cannot, for instance, sustainably protect the environment if the majority of the people are still in primitive agriculture leading to the encroachment of forest reserves.
Yoweri Museveni
Gardening is civil and social, but it wants the vigor and freedom of the forest and the outlaw.
Henry David Thoreau
You are Christians; find out what is true and false in Christianity – and you will then find out what is true. Find out what is true and false in your environment with all its oppressions and cruelties, and then you will find out what is true. Why do you want philosophies?
Jiddu Krishnamurti
Are we to regard the world of nature simply as a storehouse to be robbed for the immediate benefit of man? … Does man have any responsibility for the preservation of a decent balance in nature, for the preservation of rare species, or even for the indefinite continuance of his race?
Kenneth E. Boulding
It felt good, the whole family together on a sunny morning in a wholesome environment. If it hadn’t been for the warshiping God part, he would have happily attended church on a regular basis.
Tom Perrotta
Christine Todd Whitman had to resign as the head of the EPA. You know, when the governor of New Jersey decides the environment is hopeless, you gotta really think that one through.
Greg Giraldo
Anti-smoking sentiment has replaced middle-class morality entirely. The smoker has taken the place of the homosexual. Today you hear people say things about smokers that used to be said about homosexuals – they pollute the environment; you don’t want them around your children.
Fran Lebowitz
Waste not the smallest thing created, for grains of sand make mountains, and atomies infinity.
Eric Knight
To care for the natural world is the most effective insurance policy we can have
Phil Harding
If you look at all the serious scientists in the world, there is no big disagreement on the basics of this…it would be absolute lunacy to act as if climate change is not occurring.
Nicholas Stern
The office environment that people work in everyday dictates the culture that you are going to be in.
Keith Rabois
The earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth.
Pope Francis
I like being in real environments. I love being in the place that it’s about – these sets and locations are characters in the movies. Can you imagine Breakfast at Tiffany’s shot somewhere else? It’s classic. Characters are part of storytelling; they’re just as important as everything else.
Antoine Fuqua
How can we let students go to school everyday in an environment where they’re afraid to be verbally or physically bullied? We are better than this, which is why we need to keep moving forward.
John Fetterman
True wisdom consists in not departing from nature and in molding our conduct according to her laws and model.
Seneca the Younger
When you act, you’re being asked to pretend in a very rigid, controlled environment. It’s very un-childlike. So a lot of times, when you put kids in that situation, you hope they have a better support system outside of what they’re doing to bring them back to reality at the end of the day and to keep them well-rounded.
Patton Oswalt
A stable Iraq at peace with its neighbors will remain elusive until we improve both the security and the economic environment in Iraq.
Tom Lantos
I am not a believer in religious rituals. I was brought up in the Arya Samaj environment which taught us to shun rituals. Puja, of course, but simple, elegant and brief.
Dhirubhai Ambani
Our role is to develop techniques that allow us to provide emergency life-saving procedures to injured patients in an extreme, remote environment without the presence of a physician.
Chris Hadfield
Retailing has gone from an information-scarce to an information-rich environment.
Erik Brynjolfsson
When you put your hand in a flowing stream, you touch the last that has gone before and the first of what is still to come.
Leonardo da Vinci
They paved paradise and put up a parkin lot With a pink hotel, a boutique, and a swingin’ hot spot Don’t it always seem to go That you don’t know what you got till it’s gone
Joni Mitchell
The nervous system of any age or nation is its creative workers, its artists. And if that nervous system is profoundly disturbed by its environment, the work it produces will inescapably reflect the disturbances, sometimes obliquely and sometimes with violent directness.
Tennessee Williams
Pollution should never be the price of prosperity.
Al Gore
There needs to be radical development in equality law to create the environment to allow women to stay in work.
Ken Livingstone
We have to heal our wounded world. The chaos, despair, and senseless destruction we see today are a result of the alienation that people feel from each other and their environment.
Michael Jackson
The theory of the method of knowing which is advanced in these pages may be termed pragmatic. … Only that which has been organized into our disposition so as to enable us to adapt the environment to our needs and adapt our aims and desires to the situation in which we live is really knowledge.
John Dewey
I don’t ever want to do a movie where you shoot it on a motion capture stage. I just don’t like taking the reality out of it. I like being on the set in real environments. I don’t like shooting on green screen. I think it gives the actors so much more to play with when there’s real stuff happening on the set.
Michael Bay
You can listen to a birdsong, and from the content of the birdsong, you will be able to determine whether or not the bird grew up in a noise-polluted environment or whether it grew up in a pristine, clean environment. Isn’t that incredible?
Gordon Hempton
In order to be creative, you have to know how to prepare to be creative…..A lot of habitually creative people have preparation rituals linked to the setting in which they choose to start their day. By putting themselves into that environment, they begin their creative day.
Twyla Tharp
The sun, the moon and the stars would have disappeared long ago… had they happened to be within the reach of predatory human hands.
Havelock Ellis
Men are naturally most impressed by diseases which have obvious manifestations, yet some of their worst enemies creep on them unobtrusively.
Rene Dubos
The first step toward success is taken when you refuse to be a captive of the environment in which you first find yourself.
Mark Caine
Keep close to Nature’s heart… and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.
John Muir
To survive in a lot of male-dominated situations – the police, the military, what have you – you put on a bit of the crass, blowhard thing, because you just can’t survive being the nice guy in those environments.
Dean Norris
If you look at history, innovation doesn’t come just from giving people incentives; it comes from creating environments where their ideas can connect.
Steven Johnson
Yes, I was invited to make the sound environment at a booth of a huge electronic company, during the Hanover Industrial Fair in 1973. It was a job. Slightly good paid. But not as much as my producer then told the press.
Klaus Schulze
Any discussion of investment or putting monetary value on the environment must start with the populations who rely on those resources.
Helene D. Gayle
Zimbabwe was still a relatively young country when I was living there and its post-apartheid society was only newly formed. Being a mixed-race child in that environment means that you have to think about crafting your own identity and you question why you belong in that world.
Rege-Jean Page
Preservation of our environment is not a liberal or conservative challenge, it’s common sense.
Ronald Reagan
You don’t see the plug connected to the environment, so it looks like we’re free, wandering around. В Take the oxygen away, we all die immediately. В Take plant life away, we die. В And without the sun, all the plants die. В So we are connected.
Jacque Fresco
Singapore’s not a very big country. They speak with one voice, and they have a clear idea of what their regulatory environment should look like.
Karl Iagnemma
It is possible to deal with the entire environment as a work of art.
Marshall McLuhan
The reasonable man will adjust to the demands of his environment. The unreasonable man expects his environment to adjust to his own needs. Therefore, all progress depends upon the unreasonable man.
George Bernard Shaw
I thought a circus environment would be an interesting venue to explore, where you didn’t just have one tent with three rings and a show going on but where you could explore different things in different tents.
Erin Morgenstern
Today the environmental movement has become opposed to issues of justice. You can see this in the way issues are framed. It’s a permanent replay of jobs-versus-the-environment, in nature-versus-bread. These are extremely artificial dichotomies.
Vandana Shiva
All too often in tough economic times, it is the environment that gets left on the cutting room floors of Congress as everyone scraps for limited federal dollars.
Debbie Wasserman Schultz
Through pop music ideas, energies and resources can emerge that can help the audience release themselves from the unrelieving confinements of environment.
Paul Morley
The physical environment of L.A. is really beautiful. It’s actually kinda fun, too, if you’re working. It’s just not really fun if you’re not working and you don’t know anybody.
Rose Byrne
I used to feel competitive about a career, but now the only things I’m really passionate about are my family, the environment and Indians.
Robert Redford
For me, as I’ve said many times, the story is not research. The story is how the characters relate with each other and with the environment… I try to apply my imagination to what could have happened and how a little child could have viewed and processed the event.
Uwem Akpan
Good education is linked with good teachers. We need to think how we can have good teachers. India has the capability to produce & export as many teachers to the World as it needs. We need to think about how we can create an environment where children want to become good teachers.
Narendra Modi
The future belongs to those who understand that doing more with less is compassionate, prosperous, and enduring, and thus more intelligent, even competitive.
Paul Hawken
If you took a blue spruce tree and planted it in the desert, it would obviously perish. How do we forget that we too are living systems, and each of us have unique environments, needs, and conditions within which we flourish or wither?
Dawna Markova
Someone with a fresh mind, one not conditioned by upbringing and environment, would doubtless look at science and the powerful reductionism that it inspires as overwhelmingly the better mode of understanding the world, and would doubtless scorn religion as sentimental wishful thinking.
Peter Atkins
If you look at Marriage of Figaro or Butterfly or Traviata, all of those elements are in there. I also have to have a very specific location in mind. The physical environment of where the opera takes place is very key – the “sound world.”
Jake Heggie
The problem is no longer that with every pair of hands that comes into the world there comes a hungry stomach. Rather it is that, attached to those hands are sharp elbows.
Paul Samuelson
Scientists are also unnerved by the summer’s implications for the future…proof that human activities are propelling a slide toward climate calamity…humans may have tipped the balance…a particularly harsh jolt to polar bears.
Andrew Revkin
My work is inspired by my passion for human rights issues and the environment, and by my love of family, music and nature.
Susan Dorothea White
We know that kids who grow up in an environment of warmth and support will thrive and function in whatever environment they find themselves. What we need to do is to do more to help poor kids have such an environment.
Alison Gopnik
When asked if I consider myself Buddhist, the answer is, Not really. But it’s more my religion than any other because I was brought up with it in an intellectual and spiritual environment. I don’t practice or preach it, however.
Uma Thurman
Everything else I’ve been able to enjoy, but a Finals game is something that I desperately want to do I want to feel that environment.
Jermaine O’Neal
Vary your training, your running partners, and your environment. Only your imagination limits the ways you can spice up your running routine.
Bob Glover
I think if we’re going to have to landfill trash, and I think we basically have to, we might as well get the upside for it and dedicate that upside to improving the environment in so many different ways.
Ed Rendell
The objective of cleaning is not just to clean, but to feel happiness living within that environment.
Marie Kondo
We must protect our most precious resource, our environment, for future generations.
Alma Adams
People will always try to stop you from doing the right thing if it is unconventional.
Warren Buffett
My father, Arinze Ejiofor , was a musician and a doctor. Nobody’s ever asked me about that combination and what growing up in that environment was like.
Chiwetel Ejiofor
When you live in a networked environment, it’s possible to separate data from applications.
Stephen Cambone
How it is that within 60 days of a general election issue, groups can no longer tell voters that a Member of Congress votes pro-abortion, against guns, against the environment or whatever else is beyond me.
Paul Weyrich
The voice of the sea speaks to the soul. The touch of the sea is sensuous, enfolding the body in its soft, close embrace.
Kate Chopin
We must occasionally remind ourselves of our brief visit on this planet. Shouldn’t we try to express ourselves clearly, make a personal stamp on our environment, and pay attention to the details that make the difference?
Charlotte Moss
Never have people been more the masters of their environment. Yet never has a people felt more deceived and disappointed. For never has a people expected so much more than the world could offer.
Daniel J. Boorstin
My idea of government support was, you supply me with hospitals, schools and the environment to do well and that will do me fine. But do not poke your nose in my business.
Alan Sugar
Every student has something to offer, and every student deserves a nurturing learning environment.
Ilhan Omar
The world is too much with us; late and soon, getting and spending, we lay waste our powers: Little we see in Nature that is ours.
William Wordsworth
The environment as we perceive it is our invention.
Heinz von Foerster
Job creation requires a business friendly environment with a tax structure that is not punitive and a state government designed for efficient use of fewer tax dollars.
Kenneth Blackwell
I think good acting results when working together in a comfortable environment.
Ji Chang-wook
One cannot violate the promptings of one’s nature without having that nature recoil upon itself.
Jack London
If education recognizes the intrinsic value of the child’s personality and provides an environment suited to spiritual growth, we have the revelation of an entirely new child whose astonishing characteristics can eventually contribute to the betterment of the world.
Maria Montessori
The battle we have fought, and are still fighting, for the forests is a part of the eternal conflict between right and wrong.
John Muir
All societies establish laws that become norms. Those norms create the environment that incubates society. So, when you implement the laws of God in society, they produce a culture of heaven.
Myles Munroe
No company in the world would be satisfied with less sales, less customers or less jobs just because it’s supposed to be good for the environment.
Karl-Johan Persson
I wanted to create an environment in which more than just personal essays could be represented, and in which stranger approaches to making essays could be celebrated.
John D’Agata
God is the experience of looking at a tree and saying, ‘Ah!
Joseph Campbell
People say that to me and I think what unites all my characters is that they are hurt; it’s most accurate to say I play characters that are hurt but are responding to their environment.
Ashley Judd
Butterflies may be better indicators of the health of our environment than birds.
Roger Tory Peterson
The dinosaurs disappeared because they could not adapt to their changing environment. We shall disappear if we cannot adapt to an environment that now contains spaceships, computers – and thermonuclear weapons.
Arthur C. Clarke
‘Green’ issues at last are attracting serious attention, owing to critically important links between the environment and the economy, health, and our security.
Sylvia Earle
I embrace the term ‘evangelical,’ if by that we mean a belief that we together can actually work for change in the world, caring for the environment, extending to the poor generosity and kindness, a hopeful outlook. That’s a beautiful sort of thing.
Rob Bell
Home is an invention on which no one has yet improved.
Ann Douglas
Just by being out you’re doing your part. It’s like recycling. You’re doing your part for the environment if you recycle; you’re doing your part for the gay movement if you’re out.
Martina Navratilova
New Orleans is a unique environment.
Steve Earle
Unfortunately, in the environment, I don’t see as much willingness to invest heavily in R&D as I do in consumer technology. And that’s a pity.
Ramez Naam
We come from an environment molded from 3 billion years of evolution, and when we change our behavior, there may be problems.
W. Richard Stevens
Nature is a collective idea, and, though its essence exist in each individual of the species, can never in its perfection inhabit a single object.
Henry Fuseli
The greatest polluting element in the earth’s environment is the proliferation of electromagnetic fields. I consider that to be a far greater threat on a global scale than warming, or the increase of chemical elements in the environment.
Robert O. Becker
Nobody in Singapore drinks Singapore Slings. It’s one of the first things you find out there. What you do in Singapore is eat. It’s a really food-crazy culture, where all of this great food is available in a kind of hawker-stand environment.
Anthony Bourdain
To be an environmentalist is to care about the environment and care about life on planet Earth.
Sharon Gannon
Passion is lifted from the earth itself by the muddy hands of the young; it travels along grass-stained sleeves to the heart. If we are going to save environmentalism and the environment, we must also save an endangered indicator species: the child in nature.
Richard Louv
As a human being, I’m concerned about the world that I live in.So, I’m concerned about peace.I’m concerned about man’s inhumanity to man. I’m concerned about the environment.
Herbie Hancock
There are idle spots on every farm, and every highway is bordered by an idle strip as long as it is; keep cow, plow, and mower out of these idle spots, and the full native flora, plus dozens of interesting stowaways from foreign parts, could be part of the normal environment of every citizen.
Aldo Leopold
I always prefer to work in the studio. It isolates people from their environment
Richard Avedon
You know, the greatest hoax I think that has been around in many, many years if not hundreds of years has been this hoax on the environment and global warming. You notice they don’t call it global warming anymore. It’s weather control.
Ron Paul
The young generation can influence their elders and can make them understand the environmental problems that are faced by us today. The youth can make them see that our environment is deteriorating day by day.
Oren Lyons
Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans.
Jacques Yves Cousteau
Around the world today people are spontaneously spawning a culture dedicated to creating conditions conducive to life.
Kenny Ausubel
While other professions are concerned with changing the environment to suit the weakened body, chiropractic is concerned with strengthening the body to suit the environment.
B. J. Palmer
Hunting forces a person to endure, to master themselves, even to truly get to know the wild environment. Actually, along the way, hunting and fishing makes you fall in love with the natural world. This is why hunters so often give back by contributing to conservation.
Donald Trump, Jr.
Egypt’s priorities in fact are all related to the environment: food, water, health, energy, employment and education. Egypt is facing some very serious environmental challenges. The country has limited natural resources and has to decide how to manage these to meet the needs of a growing population.
Mindy Baha El Din
The teachings or the information in the Venus project is not what Jacque Fresco dictates. В It’s first doing a survey of the carrying capacity of a given environment and maintaining a population in accordance of the Earth’s resources, not Fresco’s opinion.
Jacque Fresco
Every person has the inalienable right to a decent environment.
Gaylord Nelson
It is the sweet, simple things of life which are the real ones after all.
Laura Ingalls Wilder
If we each take responsibility in shifting our own behavior, we can trigger the type of change that is necessary to achieve sustainability for our race or this planet. We change our planet, our environment, our humanity every day, every year, every decade, and every millennia.
Yehuda Berg
The movement for the environment really only started in the mid 1970’s.
Anita Roddick
In Mexico City, Tehran, Kolkata, Bangkok, Shanghai, and hundreds of other cities, the air is no longer safe to breathe. In some cities, the air is so polluted that breathing is equivalent to smoking two packs of cigarettes per day.
Lester R. Brown
I’m fascinated by the deaths of stars and the havoc they wreak on their environments.
Neil deGrasse Tyson
Genetically modified organism (GMO) foods are feared and hated by environmentalists and the public alike. Yet the scientific assessment of GMOs is remarkably different. Every major scientific evaluation of GMO technology has concluded that GMOs are safe for human consumption and are a benefit to the environment.
Ramez Naam
Nature never deserts the wise and pure; no plot so narrow, be but nature there; no waste so vacant, but may well employ each faculty of sense, and keep the heart awake to love and beauty.
Samuel Taylor Coleridge
Simple, easy actions can protect the health of our water resources and help save drinking water supplies. There is not one individual who cannot help to make a difference to the health of the environment
Ian Kiernan
While I am a great believer in the free enterprise system and all that it entails, I am an even stronger believer in the right of our people to live in a clean and pollution-free environment.
Barry Goldwater
The most important issue of the 21st century will be the condition of the global environment.
Ian McHarg
There cannot be stable money within an environment dominated by ideologies hostile to the preservation of economic freedom.
Ludwig von Mises
I have not made any suggestions about climate change. This is more about blending or shifting the conversation about the environment versus the economy. It’s just such an old, outdated conversation.
Jennifer Granholm
Farms produce a lot more than food; they also produce a kind of landscape and a kind of community.
Michael Pollan
I would like people to recognize in looking at my story that the person who has the most to do with what happens to you is you. It’s not the environment, it’s not the other people who were there trying to help you or trying to stop you. It’s what you decide to do and how much effort you put behind it.
Benjamin Carson
A way of life that ever more rapidly depletes the power of the Earth to sustain it and piles up ever more insoluble problems for each succeeding generation can only be called violent.
E. F. Schumacher
For me, I want to create a environment for the songs to live in. So one song by itself only tells a piece of the story, but in the context of the album, more of the colors are revealed.
Jon Foreman
Whether it’s exploring the woods around where I grew up, or even today exploring the coastal habitats and environments where I live in New England, or in a remote wilderness we’re featuring in one of my series – I love to be in the field and I love to explore.
Jeff Corwin
But I think you have to – whatever the environment looks like, it does enter into people’s art work one way or another; it’s very remote or it isn’t. It’s remote in my work but it has to have a certain degree of ordinariness.
Donald Judd
Workplace culture within which personal growth and professional development are most likely to thrive is basically, an environment that gives people the chance or even pushes them to try new activities and take on new challenges that build on the skills and experiences they have.
Joseph Badaracco
When you enter a grove peopled with ancient trees, higher than the ordinary, and shutting out the sky with their thickly inter-twined branches, do not the stately shadows of the wood, the stillness of the place, and the awful gloom of this doomed cavern then strike you with the presence of a deity?
Seneca the Younger
I think you are always influenced by your surroundings and where you grow up. Your environment is always one of the things that shape you, and the music scene in Iceland was a very important factor in shaping me.
Johann Johannsson
Understanding different planets in their environments is still really important. So if these planets are dead lifeless worlds, it will still be useful for us.
Sara Seager
The idea that a robot will become more aware of its environment, that telling it to ‘go to the kitchen’ means something – navigation and understanding of the environment is a robot problem. Those are the technological frontiers of the robotics industry.
Colin Angle
Only within the moment of time represented by the present century has one species — man — acquired significant power to alter the nature of the world.
Rachel Carson
We must go through a natural revolution if we are to survive on earth. We need to change people’s perceptions. If there’s no environment, there’s no human race. We are in a state of global denial.
Ted Turner
A person’s current personality of love, hatred, jealousy, rage or a murderous intent and so on is formed upon genetic elements, education, the environment and a family a person grows in.
Kim Ki-duk
People can not be separated from their environment. Living consciousness is not an isolated unit. Human consciousness is increasing the order of the rest of the world and has an incredible power to heal ourselves and the world: in a certain sense we make the world as such, as we wish.
Lynne McTaggart
I think a lot it was the theology, that the road to Jerusalem runs through Baghdad, that somehow if we broke apart the rejectionist states, like Iraq, then the whole Middle East would reconfigure itself into a more favorable environment for democracy and Israel and us.
Chris Matthews
As an artist, environment has a lot of impact on choices, and these choices can change by changing your location.
Ashkan Kooshanejad
The major cause for American Negroes intellectual and social deficits is hereditary and racially genetic in origin and thus not remedial to a major degree by improvement in environment.
William Shockley
I chose Interscope because I like the people there and the environment that was there. And the fact that not a lot of people get signed to Interscope.
Lil Mosey
More than 20 years on, sustained competition, informed customers and the rapid growth of new technology provide the necessary environment for substantial deregulation.
Stephen L. Carter
I want to present a really interesting vision of [Jack] Kirby’s characters and environments, as well as dig way, way deeper into the history of the Galactic Rangers.
Sterling Gates
We’re going to create a portable handheld environment, and you should expect the same things you’ve always expected from Playstation – a great quality product, versatility, great value to the consumer.
Ian Jackson
An ecovillage is a human scale, full-featured settlement which integrates human activities harmlessly into the natural environment, supports healthy development and can be continued into the indefinite future.
Robert Gilman
Where timber vegetation is ruthlessly destroyed, aridity and its sequence sterility will prevail and the hotter the climate, the more to be dreaded.
Ferdinand von Mueller
People are much more important than superficial environments.
John Caudwell
That’s where I began to ask questions that maybe don’t have one specific answer. And the more people you get answers from, the richer the environment becomes.
John Zorn
Occurrences in this domain are beyond the reach of exact prediction because of the variety of factors in operation, not because of any lack of order in nature.
Albert Einstein
My job is to go out partying and entertaining and it’s all in an excitable environment. Doing that after night – it gets boring, you know what I mean?
Shaun Ryder
As many an architect will tell you, human behavior changes according to the environment.
Peter Gabriel
Not everybody relates to pain, but if you can watch other people playacting it, you can absorb some of that vibe. It’s like watching horror movies – you want to have the experience, but in a safe environment.
John Darnielle
If we do not permit the earth to produce beauty and joy, it will in the end not produce food, either.
Joseph Wood Krutch
I drive a hybrid. Tipper and I got a Lexus hybrid. And we have a couple of Priuses in the family with our children. And I encourage people to make environmentally conscious choices because we all have to solve this climate crisis.
Al Gore
Our schools are filled with this potential energy, and we need to create an environment for that energy to manifest itself.
Phil Keoghan
Basins of attraction, of self organization, show up as well in our complex social environment, in human organizations. Here again, while we cannot predict the result of any given input, we can say that it will likely fall within one of several areas.
Kevin Kelly
Well, you know I have an office, my film offices. So I know that syndrome. I fancy offices, so there must be something wrong with me. Even the window cleaner intrigues me. It’s a very sexy environment.
Hugh Grant
Mathematics was born and nurtured in a cultural environment. Without the perspective which the cultural background affords, a proper appreciation of the content and state of present-day mathematics is hardly possible.
Raymond Louis Wilder
The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments in a courthouse: You cannot post “Thou shalt not steal,” “Thou shalt not commit adultery,” and “Thou shalt not lie” in a building full of lawyers, judges, and politicians. It creates a hostile work environment.
George Carlin
Like winds and sunsets, wild things were taken for granted until progress began to do away with them
Aldo Leopold
Recycling is a good thing to do. It makes people feel good to do it. The thing I want to emphasize is the vast difference between recycling for the purpose of feeling good and recycling for the purpose of solving the trash problem.
Barry Commoner
For me there is only the traveling on paths that have heart, on any path that may have heart, and the only worthwhile challenge is to traverse its full length–and there I travel looking, looking breathlessly.
Carlos Castaneda
People of character don’t allow the environment to dictate their style.
Lucille Kallen
Nurturing and cherishing creation is a command God gives not only at the beginning of history, but to each of us. It is part of his plan; it means causing the world to grow responsibly, transforming it so that it may be a garden, a habitable place for everyone.
Pope Francis
The studio’s a collaborative environment. I just try to let people bring their own ideas to the songs and see what happens.
John Darnielle
The person who has the most to do what happens to you in life is you. Not somebody else and not the environment.
Benjamin Carson
I’m one of these guys that just spoils the environment. I like ATVs and snowmobiles. I have a motorcycle up there, and I like cruising through the hills.
Tim Allen
We live in a paradox: connected electronically but disconnected interpersonally. However, when you recognize the problem, you can take steps to correct it. You can create an emotionally connected environment anywhere if you try hard enough.
Edward Hallowell
