Only when the last tree has been cut down, the last fish has been caught, and the last stream poisoned, will we realize we cannot eat money.
Cree Indian proverb
“This is so true and it inspires me because of our addiction to economic growth which is ultimately not sustainable. We cannot grow infinitely on a finite planet. The more important thing is to realize, and to pray to, and protect, and build a relationship with the sacred elements: the light, the air, the water, the earth, that we are all made of. That’s what’s important. We need to not lose sight of that.”
