A Voice in the Wilderness
"It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important
to enjoy it while you can, while it is still there.
So go out there and hunt and fish and mess around. Ramble
out yonder, explore the forests, encounter the grizz, climb the
mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that
yet sweet and lucid air.
Sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness,
that lovely, mysterious and awesome space. I promise you this one
sweet victory over those deskbound people with their hearts in a
safe deposit box and their eyes hypnotized by calculators:
you will outlive the bastards."
