U.S. Senator Barry Goldwater
“If we ruin Camelback, ever afterward people will think of Phoenix as the city that made something ugly of the most beautiful thing it had.”

“Inasmuch as the characteristic silhouette of Camelback Mountain has stood for millions of years, it scarcely seems that it should be the privilege of this generation to disfigure and destroy it.”
Louise Woolsey – Arizona Republic 1959

“… the public realm, everything outside our front doors or entrance gates – is inescapably part of what we call home.”
