Conserving our natural resources does not mean using them up less quickly. We can re-learn conservation by reading the earth, observing that in Nature, nothing is wasted, and everything is made ready for the next user.
A state without some means of change is without the means of its conservation.
This national administration (G. W. Bush) is the worst for conservation in my lifetime, maybe in history.
Conservation is ethically sound. It is rooted in our love of the land, our respect for the rights of others, our devotion to the rule of law.

The conservation movement is a breeding ground of Communists and other subversives. We intend to clean them out even if it means rounding up every bird-watcher in the country.
Conservation is humanity caring for the future.
World-wide practice of Conservation and the fair and continued access by all nations to the resources they need are the two indispensable foundations of continuous plenty and of permanent peace.
Conservation means the wise use of the earth and its resources for the lasting good of men.
