Earth Thought for the Day

“Men no longer love the soil.
Landowners sell it, lease it, divide it into shares,
prostitute it, bargain with it
and treat it as an object of speculation.
Farmers torture it, violate it, exhaust it
and sacrifice it with their impatient desire for gain.
They never become one with it.”

~ Pierre-Joseph Proudhon
(1809 – 1865)
