Hope for Humanity

Wendell Berry on His Hopes for Humanity from BillMoyers.com on Vimeo.

Don’t own so much clutter that you will be relieved to see your house catch fire.

Most of us are still too sane to piss in our own cistern, but we allow others to do so and we reward them for it.

It can be guaranteed only by our willingness that all other persons should live, be free, and be at peace — and by our willingness to use or give our own lives to make that possible.

Nobody can discover the world for somebody else. Only when we discover it for ourselves does it become common ground and a common bond and we cease to be alone.
