I found a quote which I believe is so accurate our our species, and it is also a warning of things to come if we do not change how we interact with the other life on this planet:
"The earth we abuse and the living things we kill will, in the end, take their revenge; for in exploiting their presence we are diminishing our future."-
Marya Mannes "was born November 14, 1904 in New York, NY, and died September 13, 1990 in San Francisco, CA. Mannes was a well-known American author and critic, known for her caustic but insightful observations of American life."
"According to her obituary in the New York Times, Mannes lived most of her life in New York. Her parents, Clara Damrosch Mannes and David Mannes, founded the Mannes College of Music in New York.
Marya Mannes was an editor at Vogue and later wrote prolifically for the magazines The Reporter and The New Yorker. Mannes published a number of books of essays, sharply and wittily critical of American society, including More in Anger: Some Opinions, Uncensored and Unteleprompted. She was a much-sought-after social commentator on radio and television.She hosted her own television show in 1959, "I speak for myself"
Other books by Mannes included Subverse (1959),a satirical verse,Out of My Time (1971), an autobiography, and two novels, Message From a Stranger (1948), and They (1968)." source:
