David Suzuki

“So here in the last part of my life, I can only hope that from an elder’s perspective, I can offer a bit of clichéd advice. Slow down and smell the roses. Recognize that we live in a world where everything is connected to everything else and so whatever we do has repercussions. There is a tomorrow and what we do now will influence what tomorrow we arrive at. We owe it to future generations to think about them before leaping ahead.”

– David Suzuki in The David Suzuki Reader (2003)
