An aphorism is nothing else but the slightest
QUOTES AND APHORISMS ON POPULATION
If government knew how, I should like to see it check, not multiply, the population. When it reaches its true law of action, every man that is born will be hailed as essential.
Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882, American poet, essayist)
The hungry world cannot be fed until and unless the growth of its resources and the growth of its population come into balance. Each man and woman-and each nation -- must make decisions of conscience and policy in the face of this great problem.
Lyndon B. Johnson (1908-1973, American President (36th))
The purpose of population is not ultimately peopling earth. It is to fill heaven.
Graham D. Leonard
Population, when unchecked, increases in a geometrical ratio.
Thomas Robert Malthus (1766-1834, British economist)
The world is populated in the main by people who should not exist.
George Bernard Shaw (1856-1950, Irish-born British dramatist)
Think of the earth as a living organism that is being attacked by billions of bacteria whose numbers double every forty years. Either the host dies, or the virus dies, or both die.
Gore Vidal (1925-, American novelist, critic)
