"War and money make the world go around. When you have money, you have to be prepared to go to war to protect it. . . The continuity of life, the call for making things better for the next and the next generations blots out all hesitation. . . We have to be part of something larger than ourselves, because our dreams are often bigger than our lifetimes." (Planet Earth; photo toequest)
