Happy Earth Day!


  On this important day, the MS in Publishing blog would like to share some quotes by Al Gore, Henry David Thoreau, and Rachel Carson that reflect a deep appreciation for our Earth.   Enjoy!









“Silent Spring came as a cry in the wilderness, a deeply felt, thoroughly researched, and brilliantly written argument that changed the course of history. Without this book, the environmental movement might have been long delayed or never have developed at all.

-Al Gore, political and author of The Future: Six Drivers of Global Change, in Reflections of Earth Day article



“I do not propose to write an ode to dejection, but to brag as lustily as chanticleer in the morning, standing on his roost, if only to wake my neighbors up.”

-Henry David Thoreau, from the title page of Walden and “Where I Lived, & What I Lived for






 “Those who contemplate the beauty of the earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature — the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”
―Rachel Carson, Silent Spring
