My favorite:

    I like to think of sound waves , though weakened, going outward forever. It makes one think twice about what you say, doesn’t it!

    Everything leaves a footprint elephants included. With our progress and population growth we are leaving a much bigger and worse footprint this is a fact. I haven’t read the book but wonder what he suggests to reduce our footprint and/or impact. If we didn’t have certain process’ there would be even more starvation, inadequate health care, increased squander etc. I think it is a fair assumption that there are “necessary evils” we must live with because we have put ourselves in a point of no return. Interesting information none the less.
