Quotations on the Environment
These quotations are from a wide variety of sources and presented to encourage global thinking about our relationship with and responsibility for planet earth. Bob Douglas, Coordinator for Recycling at the University of St. Thomas, is solely responsible for the content on these pages.
Many of the quotes could fit into more than one category, but for brevity's sake, each quote is only listed once. The numbers in parenthesis above indicate the number of quotes in each category.
An excellent resource for environmental quotes is A Dictionary of Environmental Quotations compiled by Barbara K. Rodes and Rice Odell, John Hopkins Press ©1992. Quotations gleaned from that compilation are marked with an asterisk (*).
Good environmental quotations not included in these pages are always welcome. If broken links are found, let us know, and they will be corrected or removed. Please send corrections and/or quotes to Bob Douglas.
