Sarah liked a quote
Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer
“Joanna Macy writes that until we can grieve for our planet we cannot love it—grieving is a sign of spiritual health. But it is not enough to weep for our lost landscapes; we have to put our hands in the earth to make ourselves whole again. Even a wounded world is feeding us. Even a wounded world holds us, giving us moments of wonder and joy. I choose joy over despair.”
Robin Wall Kimmerer

Braiding Sweetgrass by Robin Wall Kimmerer
“What we contemplate here is more than ecological restoration; it is the restoration of relationship between plants and people. Scientists have made a dent in understanding how to put ecosystems back together, but our experiments focus on soil pH and hydrology—matter, to the exclusion of spirit. We might look to the Thanksgiving Address for guidance on weaving the two. We are dreaming of a time when the land might give thanks for the people.”

“Tell me what you need, and I'll tell you how you can do without it.”
DC Gallin, Kiss The Sky

Robin Hobb
“She had come to letters late in her life, and though she had mastered them, they had never become her good friends.”
Robin Hobb, Fool's Assassin

Leon Wieseltier
“...it's exemplification of our moment in American culture and American cultural journalism. It is an accurate document of the discourse of "takes." This movie, that book, this poem, that painting, this record, that show: Make a smart remark and move on. A take is an opinion that has no aspiration to a belief, an impression taht never hardens into a position. Its lightness is its appeal. It is provisional, evanescent, a move in a game, an accredited shallowness, a bulwark against a pause in the conversation. A take is expected not to be true but to be interesting, and even when it is interesting it makes no troublesome claim upon anybody's attention. Another take will quickly follow, and the silence that is a mark of perplexity, of research and reflection, will be mercifully kept at bay. A take asks for no affiliation. It requires no commitment.”
Leon Wieseltier

Robin Hobb
“It was as if I had been following a narrow trail, and had suddenly realized that at any time I could leave it and strike out cross-country.”
Robin Hobb, Fool's Assassin

Robin Hobb
“Be very chary of telling your hoarded secrets. Many lose all power once they have been divulged.”
Robin Hobb, Fool's Quest
