Wilderness Quotes

The earth, like the sun, like the air, belongs to everyone -- and to no one.

Edward Abbey†

Humanity is cutting down its forests, apparently oblivious to the fact that we may not be able to live without them

Isaac Asimov†

Man is not himself only... He is all that he sees; all that flows to him from a thousand sources... He is the land, the lift of its mountain lines, the reach of its valleys.

Mary Austin†

Without wilderness, we will eventually lose the capacity to understand America.

Harvey Broome

We believe that ugliness begets ugliness and that nature's beauty, once destroyed, may never be restored by the artifice of man.

Carl Carmer†

Every particle of every thing rocks, water, flour, human has been in the same place flaming in the heart of our ancient sun before the earth came flying out of it.

The original cowboys were hard-working ranchers and settlers who tamed a vast wilderness. In the process, they had to contend with violent outlaws as well as warlike Indian tribes.

We were smaller than everybody else because the wilderness had provided us with such bad food. And it was a genetic defect that caused us to have forelimbs that weren't strong enough to support us. This belief gained strength through repetition despite the priests of the country. They opposed it, saying that it was an awful impiety to believe that not only animals but monsters might be of the same species as they.

Cyrano Hercule Savinien de Bergerac

Our fathers were Englishmen which came over this great ocean, and were ready to perish in this wilderness.
