20 Quotes to Celebrate Earth Day

I love Earth Day – a day to praise the mountains, the oceans, the wind and the rain. The sunrises and sunsets, and all the earths wonderful creatures! The places I have traveled and the nature I have yet to see. The nature that will never be seen by anyone. Natures great wonders and waterfalls, canyons and lakes!
