Joseph Baldwin Academy - Writing Nature and Nature Writing
"No doubt there always will be some people willing to do anything at all that is economically or technologically possible, who look upon the world and its creatures without affection and therefore as exploitable without limit. Against that limitlessness, in which we foresee assuredly our ruin, we have only our ancient effort to define ourselves as human and humane." - Wendell Berry, Jefferson Lecture, April 2012
