Sunday quotes (24)

A series of quotes relevant to the environment and/or campaigning.

This week’s quotes is from Tom Dawe (born 1940).

When we were children, everything scared us. The harmless dragonfly, for example, was called ‘the devil’s darning needle.’ The creature hovered all around us in the summertime, ready to sew up the ears and lips of disobedient children. To us, even a common snipe, owl, or bittern calling from the marsh, might be a voice from the other side.
