Happy Birthday, John Milton, born 9 December 1608, died 8 November 1674
- The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a heaven of hell, a hell of heaven.
- Better to reign in hell than serve in heaven.
- For books are not absolutely dead things, but do contain a potency of life in them to be as active as that soul was whose progeny they are; nay, they do preserve as in a vial the purest efficacy and extraction of that living intellect that bred them.
- Solitude sometimes is best society.
- Thou canst not touch the freedom of my mind.
- A good book is the precious lifeblood of a master spirit.
- The superior man acquaints himself with many sayings of antiquity and many deeds of the past, in order to strengthen his character thereby.
Milton was an English poet who is best known for his epic poem Paradise Lost.

on midway atoll, a remote cluster of islands more than 2000 miles from the nearest continent, the detritus of our mass consumption surfaces in an astonishing place: inside the stomachs of thousands of dead baby albatrosses. the nesting chicks are fed lethal quantities of plastic by their parents, who mistake the floating trash for food as they forage over the vast polluted pacific ocean.
"for me, kneeling over their carcasses is like looking into a macabre mirror. …like the albatross, we [the consumers and polluters of this world] find ourselves lacking the ability to discern anymore what is nourishing from what is toxic to our lives and souls." - chris jordan
Not only birds, when plastic bottles are degrading water becomes to be full of plastic suspention with the size of plancton, and wales are eating it instead of plancton. They are just duying in deep deep water and we can’t see it like in case with birds. And the worst problem is that it’s impossible to clean water from this suspention. You can remove enough big and hard objects like pieces of plastic bottles or covers, but suspention is too small and it covers too large territory, much bigger than both american continents together.
omg i feel so sad…
What is also bad: most people don’t seem to be aware that the initial raw material for all plastic is OIL. Just look around yourself where you are now and see what is made of plastic. The root of all is OIL. So next time an oil tanker collides don’t only blame the oil companies but blame yourself as well as each and every one of us is consuming by far too much oil derived products without knowing or thinking. Try to avoid plastic more consciously wherever it’s possible!
