Edward Abbey
“In fact, I suspect that our only hope is disaster. Cruel tho' it is to say it, there has got to be a vast die-off in the human population -- likely including us and our families -- before the survivors find themselves in a world where a new and humble and 'religious' adaptation with nature is possible.
Disaster is not necessary; the better world could be achieved through reason and common sense and a sense of fellowship -- but most of the present human world is dead set against us. Thus I was forced to the disagreeable resolutions (not solutions) which I attempted to sketch out in the novel 'Good News.' The title is of course deliberately ambiguous.”
Edward Abbey, Postcards from Ed: Dispatches and Salvos from an American Iconoclast

Arundhati Roy
“Historically, pandemics have forced humans to break with the past and imagine their world anew. This one is no different. It is a portal, a gateway between one world and the next.

Arundhati Roy

Cliff  James
“I begin to see how a post-money society would work in practice. When we are in paid employment, we are exchanging our labour in return for money in order to live within a money-based society, nothing more. Both sides in the labour-salary exchange are motivated by self-interest. But when we volunteer our labour for a cause, for a better world, we are not so much exchanging our labour as investing it directly into the world we want to see. Notes for Utopia: there will be no money when we get there.”
Cliff James, Life As A Kite

“Our hearts are not black or white. Nor are they fat or thin. Our hearts are all the same. Our hearts only beat for love!”

“Stand up to hypocrisy. If you don't, the hypocrites will teach. Stand up to ignorance, because if you don't, the ignorant will run free to spread ignorance like a disease. Stand up for Truth! If you don't, then there is no Truth to your existence. If you do not stand up for all that is right, then understand that you are part of the reason why there is so much that is wrong in the world.”
Suzy Kassem

Jane Goodall

to know exactly where to lay the cement of love.”

The fight against terrorists and terrorism can only be won when we fight aggressively against injustice and against human rights abuses across the globe. The world leaders and the UN must be seen standing firm for justice and for humanity. Then, and only then, we will make a significant progress with the fight. If not, it will only remain an illusionary dream.”
Nurudeen Ushawu

“Indeed, having the privilege of connecting and engaging with other people from different walks of life, different nationalities and different race, I became more than convinced that human beings are just human beings.

Nurudeen Ushawu

“From the moment that I met Noah, I loved the boy. I saw something special in him. A love, a fire, a passion for making the world a better place. Noah has been and continues to be, the type of person who would sacrifice himself to help out a stranger. It’s his sheer belief that his small acts of kindness would make the world a better place someday."

“But you’re wrong, Noah,” he said, turning to Noah.

"Your small acts of kindness won’t make the world a better place someday. They already are and have. Only you’ve been so busy that you haven’t taken the time to notice it. But I have. I’ve seen the good you’ve done and how they’ve affected other people’s lives.”
NA Leigh, Mr. Hinkle's Verum Ink: the navy blue book

Aiyaz Uddin
“For hundreds of years, we humans have accompanied a destructive mentality towards everything. We want to make things impossible for others to achieve, earn, or learn. But what if we start having a human-friendly mentality towards life, businesses, the environment, and the world itself. This way we are healing the people, lives, surroundings, and planet as a whole. A better place to live for us and the people to come.”
Aiyaz Uddin

“If you want to leave something for your children, leave a better world, not heaps of money, because at the rate our ancestors screwed up this world and at the rate we are sustaining their stupidity in our pursuit of limitless productivity, soon all the money in the world will not be enough to save our children from imminent disaster.”
