Mahatma Gandhi
b. 10-2-1869; Porbandar, India
d. 1-30-1948

Mohandas Gandhi is best known for the non-violent means of revolution by which India was able to gain its independence. He also spoke of environmental issues.

• “Air, water and grains are the three chief kinds of food. Air is free to all, but, if it is polluted, it harms our health. Doctors say that bad air is more harmful than bad water. Inhalation of bad air is harmful by itself and this is the reason we [sometimes] need change of air. Next comes water. We are generally very careless about it. If we were to be sufficiently careful about air, water and food, the plague would never make its appearance among us.” (1918)
• “Nature is lenient. It often does not punish us for our sins immediately.”
• “...The spinning-wheel enables us to identify ourselves with cores. The millionaires imagine that money can bring them anything in the world. But it is not so. At any moment death might come and snuff them out…. Losing one's life…is not the same thing as shedding 'self'. One has to learn to efface self or the ego voluntarily and as a sacrifice in order to find God. The spinning-wheel rules out exclusiveness. It stands for all inclusiveness. It stands for all including the poorest. It, therefore, requires us to be humble and to cast away pride completely.”
• “There is a sufficiency in the world for man's need but not for man's greed.”

Lois Gibbs became involvement in environmental causes in 1978 when she discovered that her 7-year-old son's elementary school in Niagara Falls, New York was built on a toxic waste dump, and then that her entire neighborhood, Love Canal, had been built on top of this dump.
