Top 30 Carl Safina Quotes (2023 Update)

Carl Safina Quote: “Fishing provides time to think, and reason not to. If you have the virtue of patience, an hour or two of casting alone is plenty of time to review all you’ve learned about the grand themes of life.”
Carl Safina Quote: “If you’re overfishing at the top of the food chain, and acidifying the ocean at the bottom, you’re creating a squeeze that could conceivably collapse the whole system.”
Carl Safina Quote: “The ocean is not just blank blue space but rather the habitat for amazing wildlife, and we have to take care how we use it. If we want to keep having the goods and services it provides, we have to treat it more carefully in terms of fishing and dumping.”
Carl Safina Quote: “I am drawn to the wild not because it is wild but because it is sensible, logical, ordered, stable, resilient. Wild nature is everything we’re struggling to regain.”
Carl Safina Quote: “But one doesn’t wait for a revolution. One becomes it.”
Carl Safina Quote: “Economists don’t seem to have noticed that the economy sits entirely within the ecology.”
Carl Safina Quote: “If you look right, you can see the whole world from wherever you happen to be.”
Carl Safina Quote: “People have told me that a wolf looks right through you. But you know what I realize? That’s because a wolf isn’t interested in you. It’s always hard for humans to accept that we’re not the most important thing anyone’s ever seen.”
Carl Safina Quote: “We put the murderer in charge of the crime scene.”
Carl Safina Quote: “Why do human egos seem so threatened by the thought that other animals think and feel? Is it because acknowledging the mind of another makes it harder to abuse them?”
Carl Safina Quote: “If you ask the fish whether they’d rather have an oil spill or a season of fishing, I wouldn’t be surprised if they’d vote for another blowout.”
Carl Safina Quote: “It does the things we’re also most concerned about. It tries very hard to stay alive. It’s motivated to reproduce. It gets hungry and goes to look for food. It gets frightened. Compared to other things in the universe, we and the albatrosses are almost identical.”
Carl Safina Quote: “Several groups have information evaluating seafood sustainability. I wrote the first such guide, and seafood pocket-guides and detailed evaluations of different seafoods are available for download from the group I founded, Blue Ocean Institute.”
Carl Safina Quote: “Whales are vocal, but they lack a political voice. They, too, are like tribal people, like peasants, natives, like the poor and most of us: underrepresented, rolled by the big money of strong-armed, weak-minded people who never grasp that they already have too much, who are politically connected yet so lethally out of touch with themselves and the world.”
Carl Safina Quote: “Many people believe the whole catastrophe is the oil we spill, but that gets diluted and eventually disarmed over time. In fact, the oil we don’t spill, the oil we collect, refine and use, produces CO2 and other gases that don’t get diluted.”
Carl Safina Quote: “Parental care, satisfaction, friendship, compassion, and grief didn’t just suddenly appear with the emergence of modern humans. All began their journey in pre-human beings. Our brain’s provenance is inseparable from other species’ brains in the long cauldron of living time. And thus, so is our mind.”
Carl Safina Quote: “We are blessed with a magnificent and miraculous world ocean on this planet. But we are also stressing it in ways that we are not even close to bringing under control.”
Carl Safina Quote: “Whether on’e special emphasis is global warming or child welfare, the cause is the same cause. And justice comes from the same place being human comes from: compassion.”
Carl Safina Quote: “I am impressed anew by... how much the harshness that challenges life is what causes the beauty. Birds fly because they must escape predators and search for food. Trees grow skyward because they compete fiercely with other trees for light. Living things need something to push off of. Each of us needs challenges to give us the right shape.”
Carl Safina Quote: “If wildlife cannot exist there will be poor quality for human life. A better world for wildlife means a better world for human life.”
Carl Safina Quote: “When my experiences with dogs and other animals – and people – were fewer, I used to think it silly for people to speak of dogs as “family” or other animals as “friends.” Now I feel it’s silly not to. I’d overestimated the loyalty and staying power of humans and underestimated the intelligence and sensitivity of other animals. I think I understand both better. Their gifts overlap, though they are different gifts.”
Carl Safina Quote: “I don’t mean to imply that I value the life of a fish or a bird the same way I value a human life, but their presence in the world has as much validity as does our presence. Perhaps more: they were here first; they are foundational to us. They take only what they need. They are compatible with the life around them.”
Carl Safina Quote: “It’s hard to walk briskly at this time of year; the accelerating pace of unfolding spring slows my own. I repeatedly stop- to watch what’s moving. Soon the torrent of migrants will completely overwhelm my ability to keep up with all the changes. But it’s easy to revel in the exuberance and the sense of rebirth, renewal.”
Carl Safina Quote: “Soon after George W. Bush took over the White House after losing the “popular vote” – which in other countries is called the “election” –.”
Carl Safina Quote: “Saving the world requires saving democracy. That requires well-informed citizens. Conservation, environment, poverty, community, education, family, health, economy- these combine to make one quest: liberty and justice for all. Whether one’s special emphasis is global warming or child welfare, the cause is the same cause. And justice comes from the same place being human comes from: compassion.”
Carl Safina Quote: “The revelation is this: don’t wait for some revelation. We make our own luck.”
Carl Safina Quote: “Species differ – but are often not very different. Only humans have human minds. But believing that only humans have minds is like believing that because only humans have human skeletons, only humans have skeletons.”
Carl Safina Quote: “It is said that humans are defined and distinguished from other animals by our ability to use tools and language, but often I wonder if the most uniquely human trait is our ability to deceive ourselves.”
Carl Safina Quote: “Beings who’ve succeeded on earth for millennia don’t seek, and should not require, our approval. They belong here as do we. We do ourselves no favors by asking whether their existence is worth our while. We are hardly in a position to judge, hurtling and lurching along as we are with no goal, no plan except: bigger, faster, more.”
Carl Safina Quote: “Your body is run by a competent staff that’s been on the job since before the company acquired consciousness. Too bad you can’t personally meet your team.”
