Wisdom from David Suzuki

The way we see the world
shapes the way we treat it.
If a mountain is a deity,
not a pile of ore;
if a river is one of the veins of the land,
not potential irrigation water;
if a forest is a sacred grove,
not timber;
if other species are biological kin, not resources;
or if the planet is our mother,
not an opportunity -
then we will treat each other with greater respect.
Thus is the challenge,
to look at the world from a different perspective.
