“I began to see, however dimly, that one of my ambitions, perhaps my governing ambition, was to belong fully to this place, to belong as the thrushes and the herons and the muskrats belonged, to be altogether at home here… it is a spiritual ambition, like goodness. the wild creatures belong to the place by nature, but as a man I can belong to it only by understanding and by virtue.”

-Wendell Berry
