Rispetto per le piante
di Riccardo Guarino
Plants have an essential elegance, a simplicity that is lived with serene grace. Silently passing their time on this earth, they attract without clamour, they give without demanding. He who loves plants can see how insensitive it is to accumulate without limits; how illusory it is to claim ownership over what, in reality, belongs to everyone; how vain it is to spend time just to satisfy needless needs, believing that this is the only way to escape from a status that looks like “poverty” to our blinkered eyes. He who really loves plants realizes that we are getting poorer and poorer while we continue this immense and violent exploitation of our planet
