"When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.
There is no other way for land to survive the impact of mechanized man, nor for us to reap from it
the aesthetic harvest it is capable, under science, of contributing to culture."
—  from "A Sand County Almanac", 1949

"There are two things that interest me: the relation of people to each other,
and the relation of people to the land." — Aldo Leopold
