การทะนุบำรุงไม่ใช่จุดแข็งของคนไทย เรามักเห่อของใหม่ ลืมของเก่ากัน ดูง่าย ๆ จากการที่เราคิดเรื่องการเจริญเติบโตทางเศรษฐกิจโดยหลงลืมเรื่องสิ่งแวดล้อม หลงอุตสาหกรรมจนลืมเกษตร หลงถนนจนลืมคลอง

"Preservation is not one of the Thais’ strong points. We often become infatuated with new things and we forget about the old. This is easy to see from the attention we put on economic development and growth, but forget about the environment. We fall so in love with industrialization that we dismiss agriculture; we become obsessed with roads and forget about our canals."
