Masanobu Fukuoka Quotes

Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “The healing of the land and the purification of the human spirit is the same process.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “The ultimate goal of farming is not the growing of crops, but the cultivation and perfection of human beings.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Ignorance, hatred and greed are killing nature.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “The simple hearth of the small farm is the true center of our universe.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “The final principle of natural farming is NO PESTICIDES. Nature is in perfect balance when left alone.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Left alone, the earth maintains its own fertility, in accordance with the orderly cycle of plant and animal life.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “The greening of the desert means sowing seeds in people’s hearts and creating a green paradise of peace on earth.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “If we throw mother nature out the window, she comes back in the door with a pitchfork.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “We receive our nourishment from the Mother Earth. So we should put our hands together in an attitude of prayer and say “please” and “thank you” when dealing with nature.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “There is no time in modern agriculture for a farmer to write a poem or compose a song.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “The increasing desolation of nature, the exhaustion of resources, the uneasiness and disintegration of the human spirit, all have been brought about by humanity’s trying to accomplish something.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “The real path to natural farming requires that a person know what unaltered nature is, so that he or she can instinctively understand what needs to be done – and what must not be done – to work in harmony with its processes.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Giving up your ego is the shortest way to unification with nature.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “There is no one so great as the one who does not try to accomplish anything.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “My ultimate dream is to sow seeds in the desert. To revegetate the deserts is to sow seed in people’s hearts.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “We must find our way back to true nature. We must set ourselves to the task of revitalizing the earth. Regreening the earth, sowing seeds in the desert – that is the path society must follow.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “The irony is that science has served only to show how small human knowledge is.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Modern research divides nature into tiny pieces and conducts tests that conform neither with natural law nor with practical experience. The results are arranged for the convenience of research, not according to the needs of the farmer.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “If you do not try to make food delicious, you will find that nature has made it so.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “As we kill nature, we are killing ourselves, and God incarnate as the world as well.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Gradually I came to realize that the process of saving the desert of the human heart and revegetating the actual desert is actually the same thing.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “By raising tall trees for windbreaks, citrus underneath, and a green manure cover down on the surface, I have found a way to take it easy and let the orchard manage itself!”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Unless people can become natural people, there can be neither natural farming nor natural food.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “We have come to the point at which there is no other way than to bring about a ‘movement’ not to bring anything about.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Before researchers become researches they should become philosophers.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “I wonder how it is that people’s philosophies have come to spin faster than the changing seasons.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Life on a small farm might seem primitive, but by living such a life we become able to discover the Great Path. I believe that one who deeply respects his neighborhood and everyday world in which he lives will be shown the greatest of all worlds.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “I started natural farming after the war with just one small plot, but gradually I acquired additional acreage by taking over surrounding pieces of abandoned land and caring for them by hand.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “A farmer does not grow something in the sense that he or she creates it. That human is only a small part of the whole process by which nature expresses its being.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Natural farming is just farming, nothing more. You don’t have to be a spiritually oriented person to practice my methods.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “I believe that even ‘returning-to-nature’ and anti pollution activities, no matter how commendable, are not moving toward a genuine solution if they are carried out solely in reaction to the over development of the present age.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Although natural farming – since it can teach people to cultivate a deep understanding of nature – may lead to spiritual insight, it’s not strictly a spiritual practice.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Until there is a reversal of the sense of values which cares more for size and appearance than for quality, there will be no solving the problem of food pollution.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “If nature is left to itself, fertility increases. Organic remains of plants and animals accumulate and are decomposed on the surface by bacteria and fungi. With the movement of rainwater, the nutrients are taken deep into the soil to become food for microorganisms, earthworms, and other small animals. Plant roots reach to the lower soil strata and draw the nutrients back up to the surface.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Straw mulch, a ground cover of white clover interplanted with the crops, and temporary flooding all provide effective weed control in my fields.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “The only sensible approach to disease and insect control, I think, is to grow sturdy crops in a healthy environment.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “If a farmer does abandon his or her “tame” fields completely to nature, mistakes and destruction are inevitable.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Food and medicine are not two different things: they are the front and back of one body. Chemically grown vegetables may be eaten for food, but they cannot be used as medicine.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “In nature’s cyclical rhythms, there are no grounds for the discriminatory view that underlies Darwin’s view of superiority and inferiority that deems single-celled organisms as lower, and more complicated life forms as higher. It would be more appropriate to say we are all one continuous life-form.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Why do you have to develop? If economic growth rises from 5% to 10%, is happiness going to double? What’s wrong with a growth rate of 0%? Isn’t this a rather stable kind of economics? Could there be anything better than living simply and taking it easy?”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “When a decision is made to cope with the symptoms of a problem, it is generally assumed that the corrective measures will solve the problem itself. They seldom do.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Kebudayaan yang benar dilahirkan di alam, sederhana, rendah hati, dan murni.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Extravagance of desire is the fundamental cause which has led the world into its present predicament. Fast rather than slow, more rather than less – this flashy “development” is linked directly to society’s impending collapse.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Since I turned the fields back to their natural state, I can’t say I’ve had any really difficult problems with insects or disease.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Orang sekarang ini makan dengan pikiran mereka, tidak dengan tubuh mereka.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Humanity knows nothing at all. There is no intrinsic value in anything, and every action is a futile, meaningless effort.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “In olden times there were warriors, farmers, craftsmen, and merchants. Agriculture was said to be closer to the source of things than trade or manufacturing, and the farmer was said to be “the cupbearer of the gods.” He was always able to get by somehow or other and have enough to eat.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “At first people ate simply because they were alive and because food was tasty. Modern people have come to think that if they do not prepare food with elaborate seasonings, the meal will be tasteless. If you do not try to make food delicious, you will find that nature has made it so.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “If we do have a food crisis it will not be caused by the insufficiency of nature’s productive power, but by the extravagance of human desire.”
Masanobu Fukuoka Quote: “Just to live here and now – this is the true basis of human life.”
