~ Idea 1297 ~All governments of the world should adopt a law that on at least one day each month the newspapers would not be allowed to have more than one page. This would save sizable forests in the world, diminish trash by huge amounts and provide more oxygen.
28 January 1998
Which will be the first government to do it?
Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume II Chapter 11 - Of Gratitude
Sometimes when I see nature, people, cars, airplanes, buildings, I stop walking and I say to myself:
"What an incredible globe this is, turning at 1,666 kilometers per hour with so much life on it, with people standing on it, their heads pointing like antennae into all the directions of the universe, with leaves, plants, and algae avidly absorbing the sun's energy and giving us oxygen to breathe and nourishment. And to think that we are the only planet of our sun, and perhaps of the entire universe, to possess life!
How can we not stand in endless gratitude and awe before such a miracle?"
