Wilderness

 
The love of Wilderness is more 
than a hunger for what is always beyond reach;
 it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth,
 the earth which bore us and sustains us,
 the only paradise we shall ever know,
 the only paradise we ever need,
 if only we had the eyes to see ...
  No, wilderness is not a luxury
 but a necessity of the human spirit, 
as vital to our lives as 
water and good bread.
~ Edward Abbey~
