Water Conservation Quotes


Man is a complex being: he makes deserts bloom - and lakes die. Gil Scott-Heron

The wars of the twenty-first century will be fought over water. Ismail Serageldin

Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans. Jacques Yves Cousteau

No water, no life. No blue, no green. Sylvia Earle

I have been asked so many times why I live a green life, why water conservation, why getting wells in places, why work with water organizations, why conserve water at home with double-flush toilets, why I tell my daughters, "Turn off the tap" so much. Sometimes I want to say, "I wish I knew the answer." My answer really is: I don't understand why everyone doesn't feel this way. Alysia Reiner

With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you're connected to the sea. No matter where on Earth you live. Sylvia Earle

In addition, the oil royalties the Federal Government does not collect from big oil will starve the Land and Water Conservation Fund of critical financial resources. Ron Kind

Plans to protect air and water, wilderness and wildlife are in fact plans to protect man. Stewart Udall

I write about how in Midland, the mayor instituted water conservation measures like restrictions on car washing.

It is the duty of every citizen, for his own welfare, if for no other patriotic reason, to support and fight for and possibly initiate measures having to do with conservation of soil, water and forests. Louis Bromfield

Places matter. Their rules, their scale, their design include or exclude civil society, pedestrianism, equality, diversity (economic and otherwise), understanding of where water comes from and garbage goes, consumption or conservation. They map our lives. Rebecca Solnit

True conservation provides for wise use by the general public. The American people do not want our resources preserved for the exclusive use of the wealthy. These land and water resources belong to the people, and people of all income levels should have easy access to them. George Aiken

Having lived in the arid deserts of Southern California since the 1970s, my interest in water conservation is a very personal concern. Water! The source of life! Some people are squandering the world's most precious resource while others have too little clean water to drink. Eric Burdon

It is imperative to maintain portions of the wilderness untouched so that a tree will rot where it falls, a waterfall will pour its curve without generating electricity, a trumpeter swan may float on uncontaminated water - and moderns may at least see what their ancestors knew in their nerves and blood. Bernard Devoto

There is no domestic issue more important to America in the long run than the conservation and proper use of our natural resources, including fresh water, clean air, tillable soil, forests, wilderness, habitat for wildlife, minerals and recreational assets. Gaylord Nelson

Water conservation goes hand in hand with education. Teaching people that if you literally run the water while you brush your teeth - we go through 602 million gallons a day of waste in the United States because people are used to hearing the water run while they brush their teeth. Ian Somerhalder

We never know the worth of water till the well is dry. Thomas Fuller
