#Quote
1I will be Green until the day I die, if not for a long time after.
2I think I could have been quite difficult to fathom as a youngster, this kid who didn't talk about himself very much.
3I have never met a person in whom I did not see myself reflected.
4There are better alternatives... Australia should be exporting its solar technology, not its uranium.
5I have seen such an immense change from the total repression and criminality of homosexuality in my lifetime. It does make me much more buoyant and optimistic about the future. If that change can occur in that time there's hope for many other changes.
6In securing the future of the planet, we secure happiness for ourselves. One of the aims of the Greens is to turn around the tide of pessimism amongst the young people of the world.
7Every time I get a bit worried about having made some second rate choices in life I go back and read about the Suffragettes or William Wilberforce, people who were 'wrong' in their own time, and think, 'Ah well.'
8We people of the Earth exist because our potential was there in the Big Bang, 13.7 billion years ago, as the universe exploded into being.
9The pursuit of eternity is no longer the prerogative of the gods - it is the business of us all, here and now.
10I'm worried about the traditional media, but I think the new media is a plus for democracy.
11I am aware that one should always make room for renewal in politics. A democracy is the healthier for the turnover of the depth of talent there is in its community.
12I am not a conventionally religious man, but in the wilderness I have come closest to finding myself and knowing the universe and accepting God - by which I mean accepting all that I don't know.
13I've always thought, and it gets tested at times, that I have a great faith in the fundamental goodness of human beings.
14Globally the Greens have arisen like a spontaneous combustion, a reaction to the narrow-minded state-backed exploitation of resources and wealth for a few at the expense of the many.
15Behind every successful man there's a lot of unsuccessful years.
16The future will either be green or not at all.
17Exxon, Coca-Cola, BHP Billiton and News Corporation have much more say in organising the global agenda than the planet's 5 billion mature-age voters without a ballot box.
18I am an optimist.
19I'm a very great non-violent character. I would never resort to violence to change anything.
20There's a presumption that somehow you calculate beforehand whether something is going to be good politically or not. I simply don't.
21For comprehensive Earth action, an all-of-the-Earth representative democracy is required. That is, a global parliament.
