We need a science of limits

“Human limitlessness is a fantasy. . . .  Our great need now is for sciences and technologies of limits. . . .  We are not likely to be granted another world to plunder in compensation for our pillage of this one.”  –Wendell Berry

Wendell Berry: It starts with love

“The world and our life in it are conditional gifts. We have the world to live in on the condition that we will take good care of it. And to take good care of it we have to know it. And to know it and to be willing to take care of it, we have to love it.”  —Wendell Berry
