THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY

“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.”
–Aldo Leopold

“I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?”

THOUGHTS FOR THE DAY

“We all build internal sea walls to keep at bay the sadnesses of life and the often overwhelming forces within our minds. In whatever way we do this – through love, work family, faith, friends, denial, alcohol, drugs, or medication, we build these walls, stone by stone, over a lifetime.”
–Kay Redfield Jamison

“Walls protect and walls limit. It is in the nature of walls that they should fall. That walls should fall is the consequence of blowing your own trumpet.”
–Jeanette Winterson

“There was a wall…For seven generations there had been nothing in the world more important than that wall. Like all walls it was ambiguous, two-faced. What was inside it and what was outside it depended upon which side of it you were on.”
–Ursula K. Le Guin
