      Y’know, in all the time I’ve heard or said that very popular phrase, I’ve never been sure if it’s ‘Here! Here!’ (as in ‘Here’s to that!’ or ‘Hear! Hear!'(as in ‘Hear this, people!’ Both ways make sense. 🙂 Either way, it’s a brilliant quote from a wise man.

    What a great quote – I wonder if the current UK Secretary of State for the Environment has ever come across it?

      Maybe we should email it to him/her.

    Good one. The problem is people think that breathing and nature are all things that humans dominate; thus, if you tell other such things, they will tell that they have rights to exploit nature….

      That’s the problem…a lot of humans think they have dominion over everything.
