The world as we know it will end for humans - rightfully so. Eventually nature’s magnificence, with all of her powers, will prevail. This is my one comfort. I only wish I could be here to see it. - Maria Calandra
The world ending makes me relieved. This is why we can't have nice things… - Vincent Como
The end of the world is an invention born of our species’ vanity and prejudicial relationships with nature and being. - Ryan Falkowitz
The cry "the world is ending" sounds frantic, frenzied, and yet also it is a frighteningly accurate description of the time we live in, in which the planet is being killed, destructiveness and greed reign, and compassion and reason have gone missing. - Sophia Frydman
Live each day as if you are auditioning for the final seat on the last spaceship leaving Earth. - Brendan Loper
The world is ending, because we love change but resist changing ourselves. - Karen Schifano
In terms of the world ending, maybe it will go in reverse, back to hunter gatherers and then to cave dwellings? I feel especially sad about animals suffering. Not sure what I would do personally in the last few days other than chain smoke and hang out. Beach if possible. - Lizzie Wright
