Famous quotes containing the words sanctuary and/or wildlife:

    He took the props down used for propping open,
    And set them up again for propping shut,
    The widespread double doors two stories high.
    The advantage-disadvantage of these doors
    Was that tramp taking sanctuary there
    Must leave them unlocked to betray his presence.
    Robert Frost (1874–1963)

    Russian forests crash down under the axe, billions of trees are dying, the habitations of animals and birds are layed waste, rivers grow shallow and dry up, marvelous landscapes are disappearing forever.... Man is endowed with creativity in order to multiply that which has been given him; he has not created, but destroyed. There are fewer and fewer forests, rivers are drying up, wildlife has become extinct, the climate is ruined, and the earth is becoming ever poorer and uglier.
    Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (1860–1904)
