Quote of the Day (Wendell Berry, on Community Health)

“I believe that the community—in the fullest sense: a place and all its creatures—is the smallest unit of health and that to speak of the health of an isolated individual is a contradiction in terms.”—American novelist, poet, essayist, and environmental activist Wendell Berry, The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays (2002)
