EDWARD ABBEY ~










"How strange and wonderful is our home, our earth, with its
swirling vaporous atmosphere, its flowing and frozen liquids,
its trembling plants, its creeping, crawling, climbing creatures,
the croaking things with wings that bang on rocks and soar
through fog, the furry grass, the scaly seas . . . how utterly
rich and wild. . .Yet some among us have the nerve,
the insolence, the brass, the gall to whine about the
limitations of our earthbound fate and yearn for some more
perfect world beyond the sky. We are none of us good enough
for the world we have."
