“The way we see the world shapes the way we treat it. If a mountain is a deity, not a pile of ore; if a river is one of the veins of the land, not potential irrigation water; if a forest is a sacred grove, not timber; if other species are bilabial kin, not resources; or if the planet is our Mother, not an opportunity-then we will treat each other with greater respect. Thus is the challenge, to look at the world from a different perspective.” ~David Suzuki
