  Quotations

Nature/Lifestyle

"...There is no Planet B!
Our generation has to save and preserve wildlife, nature and cultural heritage!
If we don't do it... who will?..."

“...Love one person, take care of them until you die. You know, raise kids. Have a good life. Be a good friend. And try to be completely who you are. And figure out what you personally love. And like go after it with everything you’ve got no matter how much it takes...”

“...If you ask people what they’ve always wanted to do, most people haven’t done it. That breaks my heart...”

"...Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover..."
(Mark Twain
)

"...A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step..."
(Lao Tzu)

"...
Greatest contribution to conservation has been through educating uests into aprreciating the value of wild thinigs and places - not just here but in their own backyards..."
(Martin Seth-Smith. Former game warden of Kenya)

"...You enquire, what is the use of butterflies? I reply to adorn the world and delight the eyes of men: to brighten the countryside like so many golden jewels. To contemplate their exquisite beauty and variety is to experience the truest pleasure. To gaze enquiringly at such elegance of colour and form designed by the ingenuity of nature and painted by the artist’s pencil, is to acknowledge and adore the imprint of the art of God..."
(John Ray)


"...There’s as much beauty in the beat of a butterfly wing as there is in the howl of a wolf..."
(Doug Chadwick)

"...There was an old man who said:
- “My! What a beautiful bird I espy”
When they asked: “Is it rare?”
He replied: “I don’t care, so long as it pleases my eye...”


"...I hate twitching, sometimes I love it. More often I hate it but today I loved it. Of course birding is better..."

"...We want to go because it's beautiful, it's fascinating, and that's what ecotourism is all about. It's an exercise in being human, being on the planet..."

"...This is a great business. We have the privilege of connecting intelligent, curious, caring travelers with friendly, responsible local hosts in a spirit of goodwill and sympathetic inquiry. The more authentically we present destination cultures and natural habitats, the more our travelers appreciate and value the experience. I Can't imagine a business with more potential for aiding environmental preservation and cross-cultural understanding..."
(Will Weber, Journeys)

"... In spite of my tirade against everything I don't think we need to worry about the future. The outlook is hopeful..."
(Alfred Russell Wallace)

"...Don't tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you have traveled..."
(Mohammed)


"...I like animals. I like natural history. The travel bit is not the important bit. The travel bit is what you have to do in order to go and look at animals..."
(David Attenborough)


"... There are two things I wanted to do. I wanted to show the things that needed to be corrected. And I wanted to show the things that needed to be appreciated..."
(Lewis Hine)

"...I find it very difficult to believe in the God that most people believe in. But certainly, for me, nature is a kind of miraculous thing. And to be that deep and be completely immersed or submerged in nature for me was like, you know, going to heaven, basically ...
I've been there, you know. It was wild..."
(Mike Fay after the Megatransect expedition)

"...If you have been looking for, you know, kind of the wildest place on Earth most of your life and you know it's out there and you think, you know, maybe this is it. And you climb up it, and all of a sudden you're kind of exposed 360 degrees around to this vast, endless forest. And you know that no one is there. ...
You are just completely in, you know, kind of bliss..."
(Mike Fay about the wildest wildernesses)

"...The elusive lost oasis. Zarzora is coin phrased to describe anything yet to be discovered in a far away place. Some might say there's little to be discovered. That's not the case with Zarzora. We design our exploring expeditions aiming for that Wish-Oasis, a symbol of a mystery yet to be discovered. The name is the destination..."
(Wael Abed, desert guru)

"...All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think, we become..."
( Buddha)

"...M/S Titanic: a legend... was buildt to conquest Nature.
Eighty years later it was found fourthousand meters deep..."



Photography

"...It's not enough to have talent, you also have to be Hungarian..."
(Robert Capa)

"...For me this photograph was the spark that ignited my enthusiasm. I suddenly realized that, by capturing the moment, photography was able to achieve eternity. It is the only photograph to have influenced me. This picture has such intensity, such joie de vivre, such a sense of wonder that it continues to fascinate me to this day..."
(Henri-Cartier Bresson about a picture of Marton Munkacsy)

"...I suddenly understood that photography can fix eternity in a moment. It is the only photo that influenced me. There is such intensity in this image, such spontaneity, such joie de vivre, such miraculousness, that even today it still bowls me over..."

(Henri-Cartier Bresson about a picture of Marton Munkacsy)

"...Photography is not a sport. It has no rules.
Everything must be dared and tried!..."

The more it tells you the less you know..."

( Annie Leibovitz)

"...People are so wonderful that a photographer has only to wait for that breathless moment to capture what he wants on film..."
( Weegee)

( Robert Mapplethorpe)

"...When I have a camera in my hand, I know no fear..."
( Alfred Eisenstaedt)

"...The thing that is magnificent about photography is that it can produce images that incite emotion based on the subject matter alone..."
( Brassai)

"...I've finally figured out what's wrong with photography. It's a one-eyed man looking through a little hole. Now, how much reality can there be in that?..."
( David Hockney)

"...Photography is a love affair with life..."
( Burk Uzzle)

"...The taint of age can be very beautiful. The wreckage of man-made objects is something more beautiful than the new. Rust and weathering adds a patina of . . . well, I call it 'elegant shit' or 'elegant gorp'..."
( Brett Weston)

"...There are many teachers who could ruin you. Before you know it you could be a pale copy of this teacher or that teacher. You have to evolve on your own..."

( Jennifer Barton)
