Earth's Tears



"If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer. But if he spends his days as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen.”

Heartbreaking quote for its dead-on condemnation of mankind's raping, pillaging and plundering of Mother Earth.

I think there is a Thoreau quote to fill any situation - he wrote with such wisdom.

"shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is deemed an industrious and enterprising citizen."

Yes, seems most unfair how that works. Why must be fight to save what will save us?

I enjoy the tears of the blossom.
