Only after the last tree has been cut down

Only after the last river has been poisoned

Only after the last fish has been caught

Only then you will find out that money cannot be eaten
– ancient Cree philosophy.

  1. I agree wholeheartedly. Though I’ve only recently brought sustainability issues into my main focus, this reminds me of a wall scroll a primary school teacher of mine once had, which read the same thing with a young lass in traditional American Indian garb in the foreground.

  2. I absolutely LOVE this quote. It’s so true and too many people don’t realize it.

  3. My son taught me this when he was only 14
