Earth911 Inspiration: Nature Gives More Than You Return

Nature is a continuous cycle that, when humans break it, ceases to function correctly. Xenophon, a contemporary and friend of Socrates, recognized the integral role we can play in nature when we steward and care for the environment. More than 2,500 years ago, Xenophon wrote in Oikonomikos, “The earth willingly teaches righteousness to those who can learn; for the better she is served, the more good things she gives in return.” It’s easy to forget we are part of nature, but taking a moment to remember that each day can begin the regeneration of our environment.
