Edouard Levé, Suicide

“Turning I would to I did is the grammar of growing up.”
Anthony Marra, The Tsar of Love and Techno

John Muir
“Of all the paths you take in life, make sure a few of them are dirt.”
John Muir

“But, to love nature and to hate humanity is illogical. Humanity is part of the whole. To truly love the world is also to love human ingenuity and playfulness. Nature does not need to be cleansed of human artifacts to be beautiful or coherent. Yes, we should be less greedy, untidy, wasteful, and shortsighted. But let us not turn responsibility into self-hatred. Our biggest failing is, after all, lack of compassion for the world. Including ourselves.”
David George Haskell

“I could live without television, but not without books.”
