“Human beings are not different from Nature, we are part of Nature. Our very existence on earth depends upon Nature. In truth it is not we who protect Nature but Nature who protects us”. p26
“Without Nature no creature, no human being, nothing would exist. Thus it is our responsibility to lovingly care for every living being.” p27
“In modern times we have chopped down all the forests on earth and have planted jungles in our minds.” p28
“How easily Nature overcomes every obstacle. The tiny ant walks over the stone. The roots of the tree embrace the rocks in the soil. The river flows around every log and boulder in its way. Like Nature, we should adapt to life’s circumstances, overcoming them with patience and enthusiasm.” p31
