Wilderness is the raw material out of which man has hammered the artifact called civilization.

Aldo Leopold

Life teaches you everything you need to know if you’re willing to learn.


Everything is animate, everything moves. It’s just that some things (like granite boulders) move much slower than other things (like crows or crickets).

David Abram

Is not the sky a father and the earth a mother, and are not all living things with feet or wings or roots their children?

Black Elk (Oglala Sioux)

It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.

Ansel Adams

The greatest wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wissen Sie, wir haben keine Beziehung mehr zur Natur. Wir umgeben uns mit Beton und Zement und haben uns von unserem Planeten ausgeschlossen. Wenn Sie die Möglichkeit haben, ihn wiederzuentdecken, dann werden Sie die Tiere nicht wie Fremde betrachten, sondern wie Zeitgenossen.

Sebastião Salgado

We are animals, born from the land with the other species. Since we’ve been living in cities, we’ve become more and more stupid, not smarter. What made us survive all these hundreds of thousands of years is our spirituality; the link to our land.

Sebastião Salgado
