Nature and Disaster Truths

Living-Between-Two-Worlds-1a

During bad circumstances, which is the human inheritance, you must decide not to be reduced. You have your humanity, and you must not allow anything to reduce that.

We are obliged to know we are global citizens.

Disasters remind us we are world citizens, whether we like it or not.
—-Maya Angelou

Disasters are called natural, as if nature were the executioner and not the victim.
–Eduardo Galeano

My friends, as I have discovered myself, there are no disasters, only opportunities.And, indeed, opportunities for fresh disasters.
—-Boris Johnson

We have a real role in how our own collective lives, our nation, and our world and society turn out. Seizing those opportunities is important, and disasters are sometimes one of those opportunities.

— Rebecca Solnit
