“There is a Chinese curse which says, “May you live in interesting times.” Like it or not, we live in interesting times.

— Robert F. Kennedy, June 6, 1966

“Wilderness. The word itself is music.

irreparably stunned, deadened, numbed by the caterwauling of commerce,
the sweating scramble for profit and domination.”

— Edward Abbey

“The primitive notion of the efficacy of images
presumes that images possess the qualities of real things,
but our inclination is to attribute real things the quality of images.”
