We have inherited an incredibly beautiful and complex garden, but the trouble is that we have been appallingly bad gardeners.

There is no first world and third world. There is only one world, for all of us to live and delight in.

Anyone who has got any pleasure at all from living should try to put something back.

The world is as delicate and as complicated as a spider`s web, and like a spider`s web, if you touch one thread, you send shudders running through all the other threads that make up the web. But we`re not just touching the web, we`re tearing great holes in it.
