“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these qualities have little to do with success as we have defined it.”
David W. Orr, Ecological Literacy: Educating Our Children for a Sustainable World

“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more successful people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every kind.”
David W. Orr, Earth in Mind: On Education, Environment, and the Human Prospect

“They were taught to be technicians, not thinkers, in a culture that is long on know-how and short on know-why.”
David W Orr, Dangerous Years: Climate Change, the Long Emergency, and the Way Forward
