Downstream Quotations

Remember, a dead fish can float downstream, but it takes a live one to swim upstream.
W. C. Fields

Law is downstream from culture. By the time you make a law about something, you're reacting, not acting. I'd rather shape the culture.
Rick Warren

When you pollute a river, it's a supreme injustice to those who are downstream and those who live in the river who are not human beings.
Paul Hawken

Forty percent of the United States drains into the Mississippi. It's agriculture. It's golf courses. It's domestic runoff from our lawns and roads. Ultimately, where does it go? Downstream into the gulf.
Sylvia Earle

The irony is that it was tougher to rent a car from Cerberus when it owned Alamo than to buy a semi-automatic. To rent a car, one had to provide ID, a drivers' license, and get insurance coverage. To buy a gun? Cash and carry, from the back of a station wagon at a gun show. No concerns about downstream liability or risk.
Eliot Spitzer
