"There is a resource which you can use, and the more you use it, the more you get. Knowledge."

That one is from his PDC lecture, "Resources."

Sitting at our back doorsteps, all we need to live a good life lies about us. Sun, wind, people, buildings, stones, sea, birds and plants surround us. Cooperation with all these things brings harmony, opposition to them brings disaster and chaos.

Particularly 4:42 forward. It always amused me to think that this is a powerful commentary from an old blow-hard.

It is hypocrisy to pretend to save forests, yet to buy daily newspapers and packaged food; to preserve native plants, yet rely on agrochemical production for food; and to adopt a diet which calls for broadscale food production.

Rachel posted my favorite quote (above).

I saw a quote in someone's signature that I wanted to save though I closed the window out before writing it down.  It was something like how to change community.  Any know this one?
