sermon on the mount

The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only home we shall ever know, the only paradise we will ever need--if only we had the yes to see. Original sin, the true original sin, is the blind destruction for the sake of greed of its natural paradise which lies all around us--if only we were worthy of it.
-Ed Abbey, Desert Solitaire
