"We have enslaved the rest of the animal creation, and have treated our distant cousins in fur and feathers so badly that beyond doubt, if they were able to formulate a religion, they would depict the Devil in human form."
~ William Ralph Inge, Outspoken Essays, 1922

"Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization, which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself."
~Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire
