“Only after the last tree has been cut down,
Only after the last river has been poisoned,
Only after the last fish has been caught,
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten”

So true!
I always tried to bring my son up to feel that you "are" what you can do....not what you've got (in the way of material things)! But I'm afraid ths influence from his peers was too great to resist!

This sounds like one of those Native Indian qoutes? They were so much at one with nature and what was truly important, an important reminder Ruth and so true

This is so true, but people won't believe it until it happens. I could eat that looks delicious.

Excellent quote and photo.

Tenderness contains an element of sadness. It is not the sadness of feeling sorry for yourself or feeling deprived, but it is a natural situation of fullness. You feel so full and rich, as if you were about to shed tears. Your eyes are full of tears, and the moment you blink, the tears will spill out of your eyes and roll down your cheeks. In order to be a good warrior, one has to feel this sad and tender heart. Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
