“Rats and roaches live by competition under the laws of supply and demand; it is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy.”
Wendell Berry

Arthur C. Clarke
“It is a good principle in science not to believe any 'fact'---however well attested---until it fits into some accepted frame of reference.

Arthur C. Clarke, 2061: Odyssey Three

Mark Jenkins
“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.”
Mark Jenkins

Wendell Berry
“Don't own so much clutter that you will be relieved to see your house catch fire.”
Wendell Berry, Farming: a hand book

They are estranged from their families and their neighbors. It should tell us something that in healthy societies drug use is celebrative, convivial, and occasional, whereas among us it is lonely, shameful, and addictive. We need drugs, apparently, because we have lost each other.”
Wendell Berry, The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays
