Here are some proverbs for Earth Day…

Old Proverbs:

-The Earth produces all things and receives all again.
-Earth is the Best Shelter
-What the heaven showers down, the Earth drinks up. (Greek Proverb)

This one is not about the Earth, but it involves the Earth.

-Six feet of earth make all men of one size. (Italian – Sei pie di terra agguaglion tutti.)

Here’s a line from Tennyson, The Day Dream (L’ Envoi.):

We are Ancients of the earth,
And in the morning of the times.

Happy Earth Day!

Mama Lisa
