Quotable Creation Care: Wendell Berry on Real Farming

 

Athey was not exactly, or not only, what is called a “landowner.” He was the farm’s farmer, but also its creature and belonging. He lived its life, and it lived his; he know that, of the two lives, his was meant to be the smaller and the shorter.

Wendell Berry. From Jayber Crow.
