Quote of the Day: Chief Oren Lyons on Creation


Photo credit: NASA/Gary Rothstein
I do not see a delegation
For the four-footed
I see no seat for the eagles

We forget and we consider
Ourselves superior

But we are after all
A mere part of Creation

And we must consider
To understand where we are

And we stand somewhere between
The mountain and the ant
Somewhere and only there
As part and parcel
Of the Creation

—Chief Oren Lyons, by way of The Philosophy of Sustainable Design (2004, Ecotone Publishing) by Jason F. McLennan
