The Sad Truth

woods

If a man walks in the woods for love of them half of each day, he is in danger of being regarded as a loafer; but if he spends his whole day as a speculator, shearing off those woods and making the earth bald before her time, he is esteemed an industrious and enterprising citizen. ― Henry David Thoreau

    People have been showing concern for the environment since ancient times. It is silly on our part to have ignored the observations/statements made by eminent personalities . Very good piece keeping in view the rapid deterioration of environment taking place the world over.
