Not Something to Be Skinned

"We have gotten past the stage, my fellow-citizens, when we are to
be pardoned if we treat any part of our country as something to be skinned for two or three years for the use of the present generation, whether it is the forest, the water, the scenery. Whatever it is, handle it so that your children’s children will get the benefit of it."

-- Teddy Roosevelt, Grand Canyon, May 6, 1903
