Responsibility to Future Generations

In Iroquois society, leaders are encouraged to remember seven generations in the past and consider seven generations in the future when making decisions that affect the people.
- Wilma Mankiller

That sense of sacredness, that thinking in generations, must begin with reverence for this earth.
- Paul Tsongas

If future generations are to remember us more with gratitude than sorrow, we must achieve more than just the miracles of technology. We must also leave them a glimpse of the world as it was created, not just as it looked when we got through with it.
- Lyndon B. Johnson

Future generations are not going to ask us what political party were you in. They are going to ask what did you do about it, when you knew the glaciers were melting.
- Martin Sheen

Let this be a time to honor all children and to put ourselves into service preserving a magnificent earthly home for future generations.
