You think man can destroy the planet? What intoxicating vanity. Earth has survived everything in its time. It will certainly survive us. To the earth…a million years is nothing. This planet lives and breathes on a much vaster scale. We can’t imagine its slow and powerful rhythms, and we haven’t got the humility to try. We’ve been residents here for the blink of an eye. If we’re gone tomorrow, the earth will not miss us.
I think this quote is amazing. It reminds me that we are not as in power of what is around us as we think. There is a higher power and we are just here for the ride. God created us and lent us our bodies, lent us this land, this earth. What do you all think?
