Ah, nice to see that "Growth for the sake of growth is the ideology of the cancer cell" is actually a real quote. He says that in a lot of ways, but that's the rendering that sounds best. It'd be good to get some more page numbers, but it's nice to see a lot more stuff sourced now. Sarge Baldy 19:58, 6 June 2006 (UTC)

Duplicate[edit]

One quote, "We know this apodictic rock...," is listed twice in a single edit (diff), attributed to two sources. If it appears in both works it should only be listed once, with a source note to that effect. ~ Ningauble 13:42, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Source needed for "One final paragraph of advice"[edit]

The brilliant paragraph beginning, "One final paragraph of advice:" is widely quoted but rarely sourced. WQ quotes from Saving Nature's Legacy which evidently references it to a speech recorded in High Country News, 1976. However, the text of that issue is available at http://s3.amazonaws.com/hcn-media/archive-pdf/1976_09_24.pdf and the paragraph quoted does not appear. Does anyone have another source, or a fuller recording of that speech? 64.9.63.213 20:27, 16 April 2015 (UTC)
