Credo for the Earth
By David Brower's
There is but one ocean though its coves have many names; a single sea of atmosphere with no coves at all; the miracle of soil, alive and giving life, lying thin on the only earth,
for which there is no spare.
We seek a renewed stirring of love for the earth.
We plead that what we are capable of doing to it is often what we ought not to do. We urge that all people now determine that an untrammeled wildness shall remain here to testify that this generation had love for the next.
We would celebrate a new renaissance.
The old one found a way exploit.
The new one has discovered the Earth's limits.
Knowing them, we may learn anew what compassionand beauty are, and pause to listen to the Earth's music.
We may see that progress is not the accelerating speed with which we multiply and subdue the Earth nor the growing number of things we possess and cling to.
It is a way along which to search for truth,
to find serenity and love and reverence for life,
to be part of an enduring harmony,
trying hard not to sing out of tune.
