Great quotes

Right now our economy by and large operates by stealing the future, selling it in the present, and call it GDP

Paul Hawken

We [Canada] are the dinosaurs in energy resources.

Christine Stewart (former Environment Minister Canada)

The world will not evolve past it current state of crisis by using the same way of thinking that created the situation

Albert Einstein

It is no measure of  good wealth to be well adjusted to a sick society

Krishnamurti

All of us share this world for but a brief moment in time. The question is whether we spend that time focused on what pushes us apart, or whether we commit ourselves to an effort –a sustained effort– to find common ground, to focus on the future we seek for our children, and to respect the dignity of all human beings.

It is easier to start wars than to end them. It is easier to blame others than to look inward; to see what is different about someone than to find the things we share. But we should choose the right path, not just the easy path.

Obama’s speech in Kairo
