Something to Live By

My wife, Lianna, was reading one of her magazines the other day, and came across this quote. She loved it and showed it to me. We feel that this says in 100 words or so what should be the creed of everyone who has an affinity for the outdoors. It is by Edward Abbey, the American writer best known for Desert Solitaire: A Season in the Wilderness.

“It is not enough to fight for the land; it is
even more important to enjoy it. While you
can. While it’s still here. So get out there
and hunt and fish and mess around with
your friends, ramble out yonder and explore
the forests....climb the mountains, bag the
peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that
yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while
and contemplate the precious stillness,
the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space”

Edward Abbey
