The Greed of Gain
Rabindranath Tagore

“The greed of gain has no time or limit to its capaciousness.
Its one object is to produce and consume.
It has pity neither for beautiful nature nor for living human beings.
It is ruthlessly ready without a moment’s hesitation
to crush beauty and life out of them, molding them into money.

~ Rabindranath Tagore

Earth Thought for the Day

“Men no longer love the soil.
Landowners sell it, lease it, divide it into shares,
prostitute it, bargain with it
and treat it as an object of speculation.
Farmers torture it, violate it, exhaust it
and sacrifice it with their impatient desire for gain.
They never become one with it.”

~ Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
(1809 – 1865)
