Quote for the day: In the company of the tree

"When we call a tree a tree, we are not isolated among words and facts but are at once in the company of the tree itself and surrounded by ancestral voices calling out to us all that trees have been and meant. This is simply the condition of being human in this world, and there is nothing that art and science can do about it, except get used to it." ~~ Wendell Berry, "The Loss of the University," in Home Economics
