    • Quotations:
    • With each gust a wisp of smoke from my chimney bears witness that the sun did not shine in vain.

      We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.

      During each week from April to September there are, on the average, ten wild plants coming into first bloom.

      When a remote ancestor of ours invented the shovel, he became a giver: he could plant a tree. And when the axe was invented, he became a taker: he could chop it down.

      A conservationist is one who is humbly aware that with each stroke he is writing his signature on the face of his land.
