believe that peace will only come when we learn to live on this planet in a way
that allows all other creatures to exist alongside us.
hope for the future is that we actually come to care more about the future.
we have evolved to think not just one generation out, but three or four, or perhaps
ten, we will continue to overuse and abuse the Earth’s resources and threaten
the very place we call home with irreparable environmental degradation.
dream, my hope for the future is that we evolve into beings that care about the
far distant future. That we evolve to care not just about our own species, but
also about the other living creatures with which we share this planet. That will
be the ultimate definition of selflessness.
have to think of peace not just as among our own species but as encompassing all
species that live on this planet. We must look at how our activities affect the
natural world in which we live.
