World Quotes
(30+ quotes)

World quotes speak to universal truths. What is your vision for humanity? We all have a responsibility to be the change we want to see in the world. We have a great opportunity in front of us.

The opportunity has to do with forming a new vision for a world that lives together in peace. There is a movement which suggests we all live more simply so that others may simply live. It is time for a sustainable economy which views the earth and all her resources as a ‘shared commodity.’ It is time to rethink boundaries and embrace the idea of a global family. We are all citizens of the world and members of the human race. If you find these world quotes inspiring, let me know.
