Danish philosopher 1813-1855
People commonly travel the world over to see rivers and mountains, new stars, garish birds, freak fish, grotesque breeds of human; they fall into an animal stupor that gapes at existence and they think they have seen something.
The thirsty earth soaks up the rain,
And drinks, and gapes for drink again;
The plants suck in the earth, and are
With constant drinking fresh and fair.Source: From Anacreon, ii. Drinking; reported in Bartletts Familiar Quotations, 10th ed. (1919).
T. S. Eliot
British essayist, publisher, playwright, literary and social critic 1888-1965
There are flood and drought over the eyes and in the mouth, dead water and dead sand contending for the upper hand. The parched eviscerate soil gapes at the vanity of toil, laughs without mirth. This is the death of the earth.
