Citações Edwin Way Teale


„Moralmente, é tão condenável não querer saber se uma coisa é verdade ou não, desde que ela nos dê prazer, quanto não querer saber como conseguimos o dinheiro, desde que ele esteja na nossa mão.“

„It is morally as bad not to care whether a thing is true or not, so long as it makes you feel good, as it is not to care how you got your money as long as you have got it.“ Circle of the Seasons: The Journal of a Naturalist's Year


„Reduce the complexity of life by eliminating the needless wants of life and the labors of life reduce themselves.“

„Those who wish to pet and baby wild animals "love" them. But those who respect their natures and wish to let them live normal lives, love them more.“ Circle of the Seasons: The Journal of a Naturalist's Year

„Our minds, as well as our bodies, have need of the out-of-doors. Our spirits, too, need simple things, elemental things, the sun and the wind and the rain, moonlight and starlight, sunrise and mist and mossy forest trails, the perfumes of dawn and the smell of fresh-turned earth and the ancient music of wind among the trees.“

„Nature is shy and noncommittal in a crowd. To learn her secrets, visit her alone or with a single friend, at most. Everything evades you, everything hides, even your thoughts escape you, when you walk in a crowd.“ Circle of the Seasons: The Journal of a Naturalist's Year

„The long fight to save wild beauty represents democracy at its best. It requires citizens to practice the hardest of virtues--self-restraint. Why cannot I take as many trout as I want from a stream? Why cannot I bring home from the woods a rare wildflower? Because if I do, everybody in this democracy should be able to do the same. My act will be multiplied endlessly. To provide protection for wildlife and wild beauty, everyone has to deny himself proportionately. Special privilege and conservation are ever at odds.“ Circle of the Seasons: The Journal of a Naturalist's Year

„How strangely inaccurate it is to measure length of living by length of life! The space between your birth and death is often far from a true measure of your days of.“ Circle of the Seasons: The Journal of a Naturalist's Year


„If man can take care of man, nature can take care of the rest.“ Circle of the Seasons: The Journal of a Naturalist's Year

„It is those who have compassion for all life who will best safeguard the life of man. Those who become aroused only when man is endangered become aroused too late. We cannot make the world uninhabitable for other forms of life and have it habitable for ourselves. It is the conservationist who is concerned with the welfare of all the land and life of the country, who, in the end, will do most to maintain the world as a fit place for human existence.“

„Eliminate the needless wants of life, and the labors of life reduce themselves.“

„Time is the river. We are the islands. Time washes around us and flows away and with it flow fragments of our lives. So, little by little, each island shrinks…. But where, who can say, down the long stream of time, are our eroded days deposited?“ Journey Into Summer: A Naturalist's Record of a 19,000-Mile Journey Through the North American Summer
