Quotes

...It fashioned the legal definition of "wilderness" and upon its signing, prompted President Johnson to remark: "If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it." Today, the Wilderness Act's text remains as beautifully concise and poetic as it was 50 years ago:
...I also remember stepping into the tiny visitors center in Arctic Village and seeing Mardy honored in its walls. "I hope the United States of America is not so rich that she can afford to let these wildernesses pass by. Or so poor, she cannot afford to keep them" she once told Congress. We are the nation that passed the Wilderness Act 50 years ago. Now we can be the nation that builds on that legacy
"I think it's critically important that we reform the Senate, and you can best reform the Senate by change in leadership" Murkowski said
September 2006: Gives farewell speech to Senate, remarking "I regret that my departure from Congress, like my arrival, finds our country at war."
