We have been wrong. We must change our lives, so that it will be possible to live by the contrary assumption that what is good for the world will be good for us. . . We must recover the sense of the majesty of the creation and the ability to be worshipful in its presence. For it is only on the condition of humility and reverence before the world that our species will be able to remain in it."<br/><br/>-Wendel Berry I just found this quotation, and it also seemed to speak to the issue very directly~

Thank you for posting the reasons, Sharon–after reading the rules and faq, I had decided to give up almost entirely!

Thank you for all your inspriation.
