5 Severn Cullis-Suzuki You Quotes

” You don’t know how to fix the holes in our ozone layer. You don’t know how to bring salmon back up a dead stream. You don’t know how to bring back an animal now extinct. And you can’t bring back forests that once grew where there is now desert. If you don’t know how to fix it, please stop breaking it! “


” In school you teach us not to fight with others, to work things out, to respect others, to clean up our mess, not to hurt other creatures, to share, not be greedy. Then why do you go out and do the things you tell us not to do? You grownups say you love us, but I challenge you, please, to make your actions reflect your words. “


” When you are little, it’s not hard to believe you can change the world. “

You have a city where trash is taken away from the curb every week, and you don’t see it any more, and you don’t have any sense of where water comes from. So there’s no sense of responsibility and accountability and there’s also no sense of empowerment for our actions. “


” I feel angry that I have been born into a society where, by no choice of my own, by no agreement, by no actual decision, I am inherently complicit in the destruction of the world. It is hard to do the right thing. You have to be militant. You have to be an activist. You have to be branded as green to do the right thing. “
