"The ultimate test of a moral society is the kind of world that it leaves to its children." Dietrich Bonhoeffer, German theologian
"Our ideals, laws and customs should be based on the proposition that each generation, in turn, becomes the custodian rather than the absolute owner of our resources and each generation has the obligation to pass this inheritance on to the future." Charles A. Lindbergh, New York Times Magazine, 23 May 1971
"The nation behaves well if it treats the natural resources as assets which it must turn over to the next generation increased, and not impaired in value."
"Sustainable development is...development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of further generations to meet their own needs."
Excerpt from Our Common Future, a report from the UN World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987
