Our tools are better than we are, and grow better faster than we do. They suffice to crack the atom, to command the tides. But they do not suffice for the oldest task in the human history: to live on piece of land without spoiling it.
― The great conservationist-philosopher Aldo Leopold (1930)

Count your age by friends, not years. Count your life by smiles, not tears.
― The great singer and song-writer John Lennon

I'm not young enough to know everything.
― The great writer James Matthew Barrie, from The Admirable Crichton
