It is time to stop quivering in our boots in pointless fear of the future and just roll up our sleeves and build it.

Most men, it seems to me, do not care for Nature and would sell their share in all her beauty, as long as they may live, for a stated sum — many for a glass of rum. Thank God, men cannot as yet fly, and lay waste the sky as well as the earth!

Henry Thoreau, Journal, 3 January 1861

"The anthropocene must be either well-managed or brief." Superb. Gonna try and work this into a job covering letter! (With appropriate acknowledgement of course!)
