"When I talk to college administrators and college presidents, I say that ecology is not a course. It’s not a program. It’s a foundation of all courses, all programs, all professions. Because ecology is a functioning cosmology. It’s the way the universe functions. It’s the way the Earth functions. And to be able to think this way is the beginning of survival. Because right now we are not in a survival mode, because we are disrupting things."

–Thomas Berry (December 1998)
