Prišel je čas, ko moramo v milijonskem številu demonstrirati, ne proti temu ali onemu, temveč na temelju volje do dobrega in sočutja, ki opredeljujeta, kdo v resnici smo. Kajti v slehernem človeškem srcu je vgrajena ljubezen in modrost celotnega človeštva. - Mohammed Mesbahi

Earth Overshoot Day is on 2 August this year, according to environmental groups WWF and the Global Footprint Network.
