My Favorite Sustainability Quotes

My Favorite Sustainability Quotes

I had never really been a big quotes person until a few years ago. When I was in the midst of my banking career on a day where I was feeling particularly stressed and anxious, my former roommate suggested I turn to Pinterest. She had created a board filled with inspirational/motivational quotes that had helped guide her through rough times. It seemed a bit too easy to me but I decided to give it a try. Before I knew it I had 25 images pinned all touting something along the lines of "you're strong enough to get through this" and "there's always a light at the end of the tunnel." 

Building Reprise hasn't been nearly as stressful as my old job, but it has come with it's fair share of doubt and uncertainties. So as we lead up to the official launch, I wanted to share some of my favorite sustainability-related quotes:

  1. “Live simply so that others may simply live.” - Mohandas K. Ghandi
  2. "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has" - Margaret Mead
  3. "An important function of almost every system is to ensure its own perpetuation" - Donella H. Meadows
  4. "I'm just one human being, but I believe each one of us has a responsibility to contribute to a happier humanity" - Dalai Lama

  5. "Buy less, choose well, make it last" - Vivienne Westwood
  6. "No one is going to stand up at your funeral and say, 'She had a really expensive couch and great shoes' Don't make life about stuff." - Unknown
  7. "People 'over produce' pollution because they are not paying for the costs of dealing with it" - Ha-Joon Chang
  8. "There must be more to life than having everything!" - Maurice Sendak
  9. "Have Less. Do More. Be More." - Unknown
  10. "There is no such thing as 'away.' When we throw anything away it must go somewhere" - Annie Leonard
  11. "Love people and use things because the opposite never works" - The Minimalists
