Life comes from physical survival; but the good life comes from what we care about. [Rollo May]

The wise man regulates good living so as to be able to sit for a spell.

Pithy sentences can be like sharp nails which force truth on our memory. [With Denis Diderot]

It is not wise if everybody on earth seeks to exploit nature; but it is a prevalent attitude around, most regrettably. [TK]

Self-interest is but the survival of the animal in us. [Henri Frederic Amiel]

Essentials fit for survival are at times hard to discern from merely glittering bon mots.

Learning is not compulsory . . . neither is survival. [W. Edwards Deming]

Humor can be one of our best survival tools. [Allen Klein]

The more we exploit nature, the more our options are reduced, until we have only one: to fight for survival. [Morris K. Udall, American Congressman (1922-1998)]
