A Different Perspective

'A Different Perspective'

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 biological 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
