At the risk of starting a "Margaret Mead Quote-athon" (perhaps not so bad

"I truly believe that we in this generation must come to terms with nature,
and I think we're challenged as mankind has never been challenged before to
prove our maturity and our mastery, not of nature, but of ourselves." --
"CBS Reports: The Silent Spring of Rachel Carson," March 1963.

The passing of nearly two generations since her observation, and the
environmental decline during the intervening years, has made it all the
more imperative that we heed her advice, IMHO.
