Quotes About Earth

earth-day

Today is Earth Day. Every day should be Earth Day. Make her a promise and keep it. Promise her that each and every day, you’ll do something to help her maintain her beauty. Pick up trash even if it doesn’t belong to you. Stop adding to the landfills with tons of plastic and garbage. Walk to the store. Plant some flowers and trees. Clean up your own back yard, and then do the same for your neighbor. Leave something for those who will follow us on this Earth Walk. Leave something for your children. Not money, not worldly goods, but clean air and water. For when our Mother the Earth is overwhelmed with filth and misery, she’ll survive, but we won’t.

~ Meadow Walker

Earth, my dearest, oh believe me, you no longer need your spring times to win me over…Unspeakably, I have belonged to you, from the flush.

The care of the earth is our most ancient and most worthy and, after all, our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it, and to foster its renewal, is our only legitimate hope.

~ Wendell Berry

The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only paradise we shall ever know, the only paradise we shall ever need; if only we had the eyes to see.

~ Edward Abbey

Earth’s crammed with heaven…But only he who sees, takes off his shoes.

~ Elizabeth Barrett Browning

And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair.

~Kahlil Gibran, The Prophet
