Two quotes from The Royal Bank of Canada in a monthly letter for May 1960:
“If we wish to preserve our present way of life we must come to terms with what is left of natural forest, soil, water and wild life, and it will be on terms laid down by nature, not imposed by us.”
“Nature’s law does not command us to do or refrain from doing anything. It merely states that if a living being does so-and-so, then the result will be such-and-such. If we wish to avoid disability, pain and dissolution, we must pay attention to the warning.”
My how times have changed.
