Text Quotes
I am but one member of a vast team made up of many organizations, officials, thousands of scientists, and millions of farmers - mostly small and humble - who for many years have been fighting a quiet, oftentimes losing war on the food production front.  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Cereal production in the rain-fed areas still remains relatively unaffected by the impact of the green revolution, but significant change and progress are now becoming evident in several countries.  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) During the past three years spectacular progress has been made in increasing wheat, rice, and maize production in several of the most populous developing countries of southern Asia, where widespread famine appeared inevitable only five years ago  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Man’s survival, from the time of Adam and Eve until the invention of agriculture, must have been precarious because of his inability to ensure his food supply  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Cereal production in the rain-fed areas still remains relatively unaffected by the impact of the green revolution, but significant change and progress are now becoming evident in several countries  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Plant diseases, drought, desolation, despair were recurrent catastrophes during the ages - and the ancient remedies: supplications to supernatural spirits or gods  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Everything else can wait, agriculture can’t  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) You can’t build a peaceful world on empty stomachs and human misery  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Food is the moral right of all who are born into this world  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Man seems to insist on ignoring the lessons available from history  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) The destiny of world civilization depends upon providing a decent standard of living for all mankind  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Civilization as it is known today could not have evolved, nor can it survive, without an adequate food supply  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Therefore I feel that the aforementioned guiding principle must be modified to read: If you desire peace, cultivate justice, but at the same time cultivate the fields to produce more bread; otherwise there will be no peace  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Without food, man can live at most but a few weeks; without it, all other components of social justice are meaningless  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Yet food is something that is taken for granted by most world leaders despite the fact that more than half of the population of the world is hungry  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Reach for the stars. Although you will never touch them, if you reach hard enough, you will find that you get a little star dust on you in the process  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) There are 6.6 billion people on the planet today. With organic farming we could only feed four billion of them. Which two billion would volunteer to die?  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) This is a basic problem, to feed 6.6 billion people. Without fertilizer, forget it. The game is over  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) We are 6.6 billion people now. We can only feed 4 billion. I don’t see 2 billion volunteers to disappear  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) To this day, I enjoy nature, the luxury of undisturbed wilderness, forests, mountains, lakes, rivers and deserts and their wildlife. But I also know that the greatest danger to their perpetuity is the pressure of human population  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Almost certainly, the first essential component of social justice is adequate food for all mankind. Food is the moral right of all who are born into this world. Yet today 50 percent of the world’s population goes hungry. Without food, man can live at most but a few weeks; without it, all other components of social justice are meaningless... If you desire peace, cultivate justice, but at the same time cultivate the fields to produce more bread, otherwise there will be no peace  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Man can and must prevent the tragedy of famine in the future instead of merely trying with pious regret to salvage the human wreckage of the famine, as he has so often done in the past  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) There can be no permanent progress in the battle against hunger until the agencies that fight for increased food production and those that fight for population control unite in a common effort  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) The green revolution has an entirely different meaning to most people in the affluent nations of the privileged world than to those in the developing nations of the forgotten world  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) The forgotten world is made up primarily of the developing nations, where most of the people, comprising more than fifty percent of the total world population, live in poverty, with hunger as a constant companion and fear of famine a continual menace  (Norman Borlaug Quotes) Almost certainly, however, the first essential component of social justice is adequate food for all mankind  (Norman Borlaug Quotes)
