Chekhov, Anton - Animals and Wildlife, Rivers, Trees and Forests
"Man has been endowed with reason, with the power to create, so that he can add to what he's been given. But up to now, he hasn't been a creator, only a destroyer. Forests keep disappearing, rivers dry up, wild life's become extinct, the climate's ruined and the land grows poorer and uglier every day."
- from Uncle Vanya (1900)
- Anton Pavlovich Chekhov (Russian author and playwright, b. 1860 - d. 1904)
