"Sometimes we have withheld our power to destroy, and have left a threatened species like the Buffalo, a threatened beauty spot like Yosemite, or Yellowstone, or Dinosaur scrupulously alone.
We are the most dangerous species of life on the planet, and every other species, even the earth itself, has cause to fear our power to exterminate.
But we are also the only species which, when it chooses to do so, will go to great effort to save what it might destroy."
Words to think about, for everyday life, whether it be Nature, Family, Faiths, Rights, and or Politics.
R. William Holzkopf Jr.
