It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate,
to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.”

Rachel Carson Quote

“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder
without any such gift from the fairies,
he needs the companionship of at least one adult
who can share it,
rediscovering with him the joy,
excitement and mystery of the world we live in.”

– Rachel Carson

Rachel Carson Quote

“To stand at the edge of the sea,
to sense the ebb and flow of the tides,
to feel the breath of a mist moving over a great salt marsh,
to watch the flight of shore birds that have swept up and down
the surf lines of the continents for untold thousands of year,
to see the running of the old eels and the young shad to the sea,
is to have knowledge of things that are as nearly eternal
as any earthly life can be.”

– Rachel Carson

Rachel Carson Quote

“We stand now where two roads diverge.
But unlike the roads in Robert Frost’s familiar poem,
they are not equally fair.
The road we have long been traveling is deceptively easy,
a smooth superhighway on which we progress with great speed,
but at its end lies disaster.
The other fork of the road /
the one less traveled by /
offers our last, our only chance
to reach a destination that assures
the preservation of the earth.”

– Rachel Carson

World population demographics

A brief, but very informative video from The Economist explaining why the world’s population is approaching an asymptote at the top of its curve, and why total population may level off (at nine billion!!).

“It will be a more crowded, but a more stable, world.”
