A Quote by Aldo Leopold on land and environment

We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us.

When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.

A Quote by Aldo Leopold on nature, rights, preservation, and wild

"There are some of us who can live without wild things, and some who cannot.  For us of the minority, the opportunity to see geese or wild flowers is a right as inalienable as free speech."

That land is a community is the basic concept of ecology, but that land is to be loved and respected is an extension of ethics.

A Quote by Aldo Leopold on animals, harmony, life, listening, music, plants, songs, and understanding

This song of the waters is audible to every ear, but there is other music in these hills, by no means audible to all. . . . On a still night, when the campfire is low and the Pleiades have climbed over rimrocks, sit quietly and listen . . . and think hard of everything you have seen and tried to understand. Then you may hear it - a vast pulsing harmony - its score inscribed on a thousand hills, its notes the lives and deaths of plants and animals, its rhythms spanning the seconds and the centuries.
