Barbara Kingsolver
“When we traded homemaking for careers, we were implicitly promised economic independence and worldly influence. But a devil of a bargain it has turned out to be in terms of daily life. We gave up the aroma of warm bread rising, the measured pace of nurturing routines, the creative task of molding our families' tastes and zest for life; we received in exchange the minivan and the Lunchable.”
Barbara Kingsolver, Animal, Vegetable, Miracle: A Year of Food Life

George Orwell
“Freedom is the freedom to say that two plus two make four.”
George Orwell, 1984

George Gissing
“The misery of having no time to read a thousand glorious books.”
George Gissing

Aldo Leopold
“Cease being intimidated by the argument that a right action is impossible because it does not yield maximum profits, or that a wrong action is to be condoned because it pays.”
Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac

Martin Buber
“Man wishes to be confirmed in his being by man, and wishes to have a presence in the being of the other….
Secretly and bashfully he watches for a YES which allows him to be and which can come to him only from one human person to another.

Martin Buber, I and Thou
