Wendell Berry Quote: “Do not tax your life with forethought of grief.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Scared for health, afraid of death, bored, dissatisfied, vengeful, greedy, ignorant, and gullible – these are the qualities of the ideal consumer. Can we imagine a way of education that would turn passive consumers into active and informed critics, capable of using their own minds in their own defense?”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Oikonomia is the science or art of efficiently producing, distributing, and maintaining concrete use values for the household and community over the long run. Chrematistics is the art of maximizing the accumulation by individuals of abstract exchange value in the form of money in the short run.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “A man’s life is always dealing with permanence, that is the most dangerous kind of irresponsibility is to think of your doings as temporary.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “So friends, every day do something that won’t compute.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “The acquisition of knowledge always involves the revelation of ignorance-almost is the revelation of ignorance.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “A farmer’s market is worth more than everything I’ve written.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Why do the health of the body and the health of the earth decline together?”
Wendell Berry Quote: “To define knowledge as merely empirical is to limit one’s ability to know; it enfeebles one’s ability to feel and think.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Only the action that is moved by love for the good at hand has the hope of being responsible and generous.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Education has increasingly been reduced to job training, preparing young people not for responsible adulthood and citizenship but for expert servitude to the corporations.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “The approach of a man’s life out of the past is history, and the approach of time out of the future is mystery. Their meeting is the present, and it is consciousness, the only time life is alive.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “The road is a word, conceived elsewhere and laid across the country in the wound prepared for it: a word made concrete and thrust among us.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “What you are doing is exploring. You are undertaking the first experience, not of the place, but of yourself in that place... nobody can discover the world for anybody else.

Wendell Berry Quote: “If the devil doesn’t exist... how do you explain that some people are a lot worse than they’re smart enough to be?”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Any religion has to have a practice. When you let it go so far from practice that it just becomes a matter of talk something bad happens.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “He thought rightly that we Americans, by inclination at least, have been divided into two kinds: “boomers” and “stickers.” Boomers, he said, are “those who pillage and run,” who want “to make a killing and end up on Easy Street,” whereas stickers are “those who settle, and love the life they have made and the place they have made it in.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “And having returned from the woods, we remember with regret its restfulness. For all creatures there are in place, hence at rest. In their most strenuous striving, sleeping and waking, dead and living, they are at rest. In the circle of the human we are weary with striving, and are without rest.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Charity even for one person does not make sense except in terms of an effort to love all Creation in response to the Creator’s love for it.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “I began to trust the world again, not to give me what I wanted, for I saw that it could not be trusted to do that, but to give unforeseen goods and pleasures that I had not thought to want.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “I’d had the idea, once, that if I could get the chance before I died I would read all the good books there were. Now I began to see that I wasn’t apt to make it. This disappointed me, for I really wanted to read them all. But it consoled me in a way too; I could see that if I got them all read and had no more surprises in that line, I would have been sorry.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “You think winter will never end, and then, when you don’t expect it, when you have almost forgotten it, warmth comes and a different light.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “We are living in the most destructive and, hence, the most stupid period of the history of our species.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “To have good farming or good land use of any kind, you have got to have limits. Capitalism doesn’t acknowledge limits.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “It is wrong to condemn people for doing a thing and then offer no alternative but failure. A person could get mad about that.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “These are people who are capable of devotion, public devotion, to justice. They meant what they said and every day that passes, they mean it more.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “People who want to see the beauty of nature from motorboats and automobiles would obviously be just as pleased, and as fully recreated, at a drive-in movie.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Those who say Islam is a warlike religion must ask if Christianity has been as well.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “When there are enough people on the land to use it but not enough to husband it, then the wildness of the soil that we call fertility begins to diminish, and the soil itself begins to flee from us in water and wind.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “The river, the river itself, leaves marks but bears none. It is only water flowing in a path that other water has worn.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “But this is not the story of a life. It is the story of lives, knit together, overlapping in succession, rising again from grave after grave.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Novelty is a new kind of loneliness.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “My label is just “good farming”, which isn’t something you can put on a t-shirt.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Laughter is immeasurable. Be joyful.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Without animals, something essential is removed from the minds of the farmers.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “The river’s injury is its shape.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “What could be more superstitious than the idea that money brings forth food?”
Wendell Berry Quote: “For if there was any kindness in slavery it was dependent on the docility of the slaves; any slave who was unwilling to be a slave broke through the myth of paternalism and benevolence, and brought down on himself the violence inherent in the system. A.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Living without expectations is hard but, when you can do it, good. Living without hope is harder, and that is bad. You have got to have hope, and you must’nt shirk it. Love, after all, hopeth all things. But maybe you must learn, and it is hard learning, not to hope out loud, especially for other people. You must not let your hope turn into expectation.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “I dislike the thought that some animal has been made miserable to feed me. If I am going to eat meat, I want it to be from an animal that has lived a pleasant, uncrowded life outdoors, on bountiful pasture, with good water nearby and trees for shade.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “A man cannot despair if he can imagine a better life, and if he can enact something of its possibility. It is only when I am ensnarled in the meaningless ordeals and the ordeals of meaninglessness, of which our public and political life is now so productive, that I lose the awareness of something better, and feel the despair of having come to the dead end of possibility.”

Wendell Berry Quote: “The rule, acknowledged or not, seems to be that if we have great power we must use it. We would use a steam shovel to pick up a dime. We have experts who can prove there is no other way to do it.”

Wendell Berry Quote: “It is well established among us that you may hold up your head in polite society with a public lie in your mouth or other people’s money in your pocket or innocent blood on your hands, but not with dishwater on your hands or mud on your shoes.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Odd as I am sure it will appear to some, I can think of no better form of personal involvement in the cure of the environment than that of gardening. A person who is growing a garden, if he is growing it organically, is improving a piece of the world. He is producing something to eat, which makes him somewhat independent of the grocery business, but he is also enlarging, for himself, the meaning of food and the pleasure of eating.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “I began to know my story then. Like everybody’s, it was going to be the story of living in the absence of the dead.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “He was a humorous, good-natured man, maybe because he hoped for little and expected less and took his satisfactions where he found them.”
