Rachel Carson Quotes on Sense of Wonder, the Environmental Protection, & Beauty of the Earth

  1. “Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will ensure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, & spring after winter.” – Rachel Carson, Silent Spring
  2. “For most of us, knowledge of our world comes largely through sight, yet we look about with such unseeing eyes that we are partially blind. One way to open your eyes to unnoticed beauty is to ask yourself, “What if I had never seen this before? What if I knew I would never see it again?” – Rachel Carson
  3. “Life is a miracle beyond our comprehension & we should reverence it even where we have to struggle against it.” – Rachel Carson
  4. “But man is a part of nature, and his war against nature is inevitably a war against himself.” – Rachel Carson
  5. “Why should we tolerate a diet of weak poisons, a home in insipid surroundings, a circle of acquaintances who are not quite our enemies, the noise of motors with just enough relief to prevent insanity? Who would want to live in a world which is just not quite fatal?” – Rachel Carson, Silent Spring
  6. “For the first time in history of the world, every human being is now subjected to contact with dangerous chemicals, from the moment of conception until death.” – Rachel Carson
  7. “If facts are the seeds that later produce knowledge & wisdom, then the emotions & the impressions of the senses are the fertile soil in which the seeds must grow.” – Rachel Carson
  8. “Here & there awareness is growing that man, far from being the overlord of all creation, is himself part of nature, subject to the same cosmic forces that control all other life. Man’s future welfare & probably even his survival depend upon his learning to live in harmony, rather than in combat, with these forces.” – Rachel Carson
  9. “The human race is challenged more than ever before to demonstrate our mastery, not over nature but of ourselves.” – Rachel Carson
