The Quotidian, January 6, 2011 ~ Mend Your Own Ways

“A man who is willing to undertake the discipline and the difficulty of mending his own ways is worth more to the conservation movement than a hundred who are insisting merely that the government and industries mend their ways.” ~ Wendell Berry (Born August 5, 1934)

Wendell Berry is an American farmer and activist, poet, essayist, and writer of novels and short stories.
