Environmental Quote of the Day

After randomly coming across the Grinning Planet website I think Sunday is a good day for a couple of quotes that caught my eye.

"The superior man seeks what is right; the inferior one, what is profitable."
Confucius

"The ultimate test of man's conscience may be his willingness to sacrifice something today for future generations whose words of thanks will not be heard."
Gaylord Nelson former governor of Wisconsin, co-founder of Earth Day

"We've got to pause and ask ourselves: How much clean air do we need?"
Lee Iacocca, CEO/Chairman, Chrysler Corporation, 1979-1992

"There's so much pollution in the air now that if it weren't for our lungs there'd be no place to put it all."
Robert Orben

Love that Iacoca quote. He probably never asked how many companies do American taxpayers have to bail out...
