Reverence, Honor & Guardianship for All Life ~ You Are a Child of Nature
“Man must be made conscious of his origin as a child of Nature.
Brought into right relationship with the wilderness he would see that he was not a separate entity endowed with a divine right to subdue his fellow creatures and destroy the common heritage, but rather an integral part of a harmonious whole.
He would see that his appropriation of earth’s resources beyond his personal needs would only bring imbalance and beget ultimate loss and poverty for all.”
~by Linnie Marsh Wolfe, describing Muir’s remedy for human misery in her book, Son of the Wilderness: The Life of John Muir
