Even though you can feel it all there, that’s just not what it’s focused on.” ~ Danielle Dutton

  47. “I’m completely uninterested in the origins of Stonehenge. I don’t care about the real story behind it or whether it should be saved or not.

That’s what you did in Victorian times.” ~ Aleksandra Mir

A medical doctor uninterested in nutrition, in agriculture, in the wholesomeness of mind and spirit is as absurd as a farmer who is uninterested in health.

It is wrong to think that bodily health is compatible with spiritual confusion or cultural disorder, or with polluted air and water or impoverished soil.” ~ Wendell Berry
