Wendell Berry Quote: “After you have said “thy will be done,” what more can be said?”
Wendell Berry Quote: “This religion that scorned the beauty and goodness of this world was a puzzle to me.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “True solitude is found in the wild places, where one is without human obligation... In consequence, one responds more clearly to other lives. The more coherent one becomes within oneself as a creature, the more fully one enters into the communion of all creatures.”
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: “Explanation changes whatever is explained into something explainable.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “If the white man has inflicted the wound of racism upon black men, the cost has been that he would receive the mirror image of that wound into himself. As the master, or as a member of the dominant race, he has felt little compulsion to acknowledge or speak of it; the more painful it has grown the more deeply he has hidden it within himself. But the wound is there, and is a profound disorder, as great a damage in his mind as it is in his society.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Our present agriculture, in general, is not ecologically sustainable now, and it is a long way from becoming so. It is too toxic. It is too dependent on fossil fuels. It is too wasteful of soil, of soil fertility, and of water. It is destructive of the health of the natural systems that surround and support our economic life. And it is destructive of genetic diversity, both domestic and wild. So.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Happiness had a way of coming to you and making you sad. You would think, ‘There seems to have been a time when I deserved such a happiness and needed it, like a day’s pay, and now I have no use for it at all.’ How can you be happy, how can you live, when all the things that make you happy grieve you nearly to death?”
Wendell Berry Quote: “We weren’t allowing our hopes to become expectations. Expectations are tempting, pleasant, maybe necessary. They are scary too, once you have had some experience. They are not necessarily and not always a bucket of smoke, but they can be and are even likely to be.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Our most serious problem, perhaps, is that we have become a nation of fantasists. We believe, apparently, in the infinite availability of finite resources.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Unless you absolutely have got to do it, don’t buy anything new.”
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: “As long as we insist on relating to it strictly on our own terms-as strange to us or subject to us-the wilderness is alien, threatening, fearful.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “This massive ascendancy of corporate power over democratic process is probably the most ominous development since the end of World War II, and for the most part “the free world” seems to be regarding it as merely normal.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “The constructions of language, which is to say the constructions of thought, are formed within experience, not the other way around.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Why must the gate be narrow? Because you cannot pass beyond it burdened. To come in among these trees you must leave behind the six days’ world, all of it, all of its plans and hopes. You must come without weapon or tool, alone, expecting nothing, remembering nothing, into the ease of sight, the brotherhood of eye and leaf.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Be thankful and repay Growth with good work and care. Work done in gratitude Kindly, and well, is prayer.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “The trouble was the familiar one: too much power, too little knowledge.”
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: “He loved the woods, where it seemed to him that every life was secret, including his own.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “In health the flesh is graced, the holy enters the world.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “We have forgotten that Vietnam, and Iraq resent being invaded and know the ground better than we do.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Living right on called for nothing out of the ordinary. We made no changes. We only accepted the changes as they came.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Always in the big woods when you leave familiar ground and step off alone into a new place there will be, along with the feelings of curiosity and excitement, a little nagging of dread. It is the ancient fear of the Unknown, and it is your first bond with the wilderness you are going into.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “The way we are, we are members of each other. All of us. Everything. The difference ain’t in who is a member and who is not, but in who knows it and who don’t.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “To hear of a thousand deaths in war is terrible, and we ‘know’ that it is. But as it registers on our hearts, it is not more terrible than one death fully imagined.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “If change is to come, it will have to come from the margins.”
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: “The world, which God looked at and found entirely good, we find none too good to pollute entirely and destroy piecemeal.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “I don’t think I had even begun to have an idea where I was going, but wherever it was, that was where I wanted to go.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “To owe what you had not yet earned, to have to work to earn what you had already spent, was a personal diminishment, an insult to nature and common sense.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “This is the justice that we are learning from the ecologists: you cannot damage what you are dependent upon without damaging yourself.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “The gait most congenial to agrarian thought and sensibility is walking. It is the gait best suited to paying attention, most conservative of land and equipment, and most permissive of stopping to look or think. Machines, companies, and politicians “run”. Farmers studying their fields travel at a walk.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “For what seemed a long time Mat knelt there with his father’s dead wrist in his hand, while his mind arrived and arrived and yet arrived at that place and time and that body lying still on the soiled and bloodied stones.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “There is, in practice, no such thing as autonomy. Practically, there is only a distinction between responsible and irresponsible dependence.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “If conservationists will attempt to resume responsibility for their need to eat, they will be led back fairly directly to all their previous concerns for the welfare of nature.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “One of the strongest of contemporary conventions is that of comparing to Thoreau every writer who has been as far out of the house as the mailbox.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Children learned about the adult world by participating in it in a small way, by doing a little work and making a little money – a much more effective, because pleasurable, and a much cheaper method than the present one of requiring the adult world to be learned in the abstract in school. One’s.”
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: “We’re living, it seems, in the culmination of a long warfare – warfare against human beings, other creatures and the Earth itself.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “Another place! it’s enough to grieve me – that old dream of going, of becoming a better man just by getting up and going to a better place.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “But, my dear boy, you don’t eat or drink the law, or sit in the shade of it or warm yourself by it, or wear it, or have your being in it. The law exists only to serve.”
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: “When the self is ones exclusive subject and limit, reference and measure, one has no choice but to make a world of words.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “It surely is far better to be disliked by somebody you don’t love than by somebody you do. Even so, I mind. Even so, failing to love somebody is a failure.”
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: “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: “To accept that there is nothing to do is to despair. It is to become in some fundamental way less than human. Those of us who are protesting are protesting in part for our own sake to keep ourselves whole as human beings.”
Wendell Berry Quote: “It is the man who can think of no alternative to his enslavement who is truly a slave.”
