After the last tree has been cut down, after
the last river has been poisoned,
after the last fish has been caught, only then will you find
that money cannot be eaten. Cree prophecy
I am haunted by the possibility that out of
our mammalian midst, a Plato,
a Gauss, a Mozart, justified, redeems the species which devised
and carried out Auchwitz. George Steiner.
