Does anyone actually know who said, “We do not inherit the Earth from our parents; we borrow it from our children”?

    There are variable perspectives on the quote.  It is attributed to a French novelist named Antoine de Saint-Exupery, and it has also been linked as an Ancient Proverb of the indigenous people.  the French version matches the wording you provided exactly, the Native American version replaces parents with the word ancestors.
