The way we see the world shapes the way we treat it.

If a mountain is a deity, not a pile of ore;

if a river is one of the veins of the land, not potential irrigation water;

if a forest is a sacred grove, not timber;

if all the species are connected beings, not resources;

if the planet is our Mother, not an opportunity;

—then we will treat each other with greater respect.

Thus is the challenge, to look at the world from a different perspective.

David Suzuki
