By their own initiative, through their own pride and hope, they change." - Millard Fuller

It means not gardening without thinking of the garden as a habitat: for mice, for squirrels, for bees and wasps. For other living creatures beyond ourselves." - Marjorie Harris

"Oh my God, does art engender humanity? It awakens your humanity. But humanity has nothing to do with political theory.

I remember wondering what kind of scientist he would find for such a herculean task." - Jane Goodall

That has restricted 4.2 million acres of forest from development, leading to the loss of 30,000 lumber-related jobs and the annual loss of 1.1 billion board feet of lumber.
