What a thousand acres of Silphiums looked like when they tickled the bellies of the buffalo is a question never again to be answered, and perhaps not even asked (Aldo Leopold, 1949)

Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell (Ed Abbey, 1991)

There's nothing fundamentally wrong with people. Given a story to enact that puts them in accord with the world, they will live in accord with the world. But given a story to enact that puts them at odds with the world, as yours does, they will live at odds with the world. Given a story to enact in which they are the lords of the world, they will ACT like lords of the world. And, given a story to enact in which the world is a foe to be conquered, they will conquer it like a foe, and one day, inevitably, their foe will lie bleeding to death at their feet, as the world is now (Daniel Quinn, Ishmael: An Adventure of the Mind and Spirit, 1992)

Are we smart enough to know how smart animals are? (Frans de Waal, 2016)
