A Quote by Henry Miller on strength, submission, devotion, and life

True strength lies in submission which permits one to dedicate his life, through devotion, to something beyond himself.

A Quote by Wendell Berry on values, waste, usefulness, nothing, exist, country, natural resources, metamorphosis, bounty, land, junk, garbage, silt, poison, economy, farm, home, loyalty, devotion, humans, unborn, disinvestment, unemployed, homeland, sour

But when nothing is valued for what it is, everything is destined to be wasted. Once the values of things refer only to their future usefulness, then an infinite withdrawal of value from the living present has begun. Nothing (and nobody) can then exist that is not theoretically replaceable by something (or somebody) more valuable. The country that we (or some of us) had thought to make our home becomes instead 'a nation rich in natural resources'; the good bounty of the land begins its mechanical metamorphosis into junk, garbage, silt, poison, and other forms of 'waste.' "The inevitable result of such an economy is that no farm or any other usable property can safely be regarded by anyone as a home, no home is ultimately worthy of our loyalty, nothing is ultimately worth doing, and no place or task or person is worth a lifetime's devotion. 'Waste,' in such an economy, must eventually include several categories of humans--the unborn, the old, 'disinvested' farmers, the unemployed, the 'unemployable.' Indeed, once our homeland, our source, is regarded as a resource, we are all sliding downward toward the ashheap or the dump.

A Quote by Anaïs Nin on authenticity, generosity, taking, giving, devotion, doing for others, hiding, and disguise

Is devotion to others a cover for the hungers and the needs of the self, of which one is ashamed? I was always ashamed to take. So I gave. It was not a virtue. It was a disguise.

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on contact, nature, exposure, devotion, prostration, control, and inside

In the first place you can't see anything from a car; you've got to get out of the goddamned contraption and walk, better yet crawl, on hands and knees, over the sandstone and through the thornbush and cactus. When traces of blood begin to mark your trail you'll begin to see something, maybe. Probably not.
