Food for thought…or maybe not….?

“Only when the last tree has died, the last river has been poisoned and the last fish has been killed will man realise that he cannot eat money

Most modern day quotes are trite and twee and to be avoided – but I just saw this old quote on my web travels and its simple message always makes me stop and think.

With the anniversary of 9/11 yesterday, the continuing religious and political unrest around the world, the poverty and injustice in various nations and the seemingly endless human consumption  of our planet’s natural resources with all the resulting waste and pollution, it makes you wonder if we will ever be able to make a difference……

A brave new world indeed – Shakespeare and Huxley must be turning in their graves.

Have a peaceful Sunday everyone.
