Your profession is not what brings home your weekly paycheck, your profession is what you're put here on earth to do, with such passion and such intensity that it becomes spiritual in calling.
Vincent Van Gogh
Brothers and sisters, love the earth. Be true to the earth, and do not believe those seducers who look longingly to the world beyond, casting suspicion on this world. Jesus is the greatest friend of the earth-Jesus who again and again, in the original spirit of Judaism, proclaimed love for the soil and love for the land. "Blessed are the peacemakers," he said, "for they shall possess the earth."
Oh, what a catastrophe for man when he cut himself off from the rhythm of the year, from his unison with the sun and the earth. Oh, what a catastrophe, what a maiming of love when it was a personal, merely personal feeling, taken away from the rising and the setting of the sun, and cut off from the magic connection of the solstice and the equinox!
D. H. Lawrence
In giving freedom to the slave, we assure freedom to the free - honorable alike in that we give and what we preserve. We shall nobly save, or meanly lose, the last best hope of earth.
Let's pray that the human race never escapes from Earth to spread its iniquity elsewhere.
C. S. Lewis
Man must rise above the Earth - to the top of the atmosphere and beyond - for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.
There are only two precious things on earth: the first is love; the second, a long way behind it, is intelligence.
I think everybody thinks about death, but I’m not afraid of it. That’s one thing about this society – why is death a taboo? When I die I know I’m going back to the earth, I have no illusions about that, I don’t believe in an afterlife – it’s a natural, biological and chemical process to disintegrate back into the earth. If I die and people want to come to a small gathering to mark my life, people can dress and behave however they want. They can play table tennis on my coffin if they want, I’m just a vessel that’s going back to the earth. It’s the cycle of life.
All the sounds of the earth are like music.
If we were born knowing everything, what would we do with all this time on this earth?
Mountains are earth's undecaying monuments.
Our love was born outside the walls, in the wind, in the night, in the earth, and that's why the clay and the flower, the mud and the roots know your name.
Join with the Earth and each other, to bring new life to the land, to restore the waters, to refresh the air, to renew the forests, to care for the plants, to protect the creatures, to celebrate the seas, to rejoice in the sunlight, to sing the song of the stars, to recall our destiny, to renew our spirits, to reinvigorate our bodies, to recreate the human community, to promote justice and peace, to love our children and love one another, to join together as many and diverse expressions of one loving mystery, for the healing of the Earth and the renewal of all life.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
There's only one sort of natural blonde on earth - albinos.
We call ours a utilitarian age, and we do not know the uses of any single thing. We have forgotten that water can cleanse, that fire can purify, and that the Earth is mother to us all.
Love is like nothing else on this earth, but only when it is shared with someone wonderful like you.
