• Don't own so much clutter that you will be relieved to see your house catch fire

    Wendell Berry
  • The complexity of our present trouble suggests as never before that we need to change our present concept of education. Education is not properly an industry, and its proper use is not to serve industries, either by job-training or by industry-subsidized research. It's proper use is to enable citizens to live lives that are economically, politically, socially, and culturally responsible. This cannot be done by gathering or "accessing" what we now call "information" - which is to say facts without context and therefore without priority. A proper education enables young people to put their lives in order, which means knowing what things are more important than other things; it means putting first things first

  • You can best serve civilization by being against what usually passes for it

    Wendell Berry
  • Love is what carries you, for it is always there, even in the dark, or most in the dark, but shining out at times like gold stitches in a piece of embroidery

    Wendell Berry
  • What I stand for is what I stand on

    Wendell Berry
