A Quote by Daniel Quinn on ishmael and quinn

Man's destiny was to conquer and rule the world, and this is what he's done--almost. He hasn't quite made it, and it looks as though this may be his undoing. The problem is that man's conquest of the world has itself devastated the world. And in spite of all the mastery we've attained, we don't have enough mastery to stop devastating the world--or to repair the devastation we've already wrought. We've poured our poisons into the world as though it were a bottomless pit--and we go on gobbling them up. It's hard to imaging how the world could survive another century of this abuse, but nobody's really doing anything about it. It's a problem our children will have to solve, or their children.

Perhaps the flaw in man is exactly this: that he doesn’t know how he ought to live.

I have amazing news for you. Man is not alone on this planet. He is part of a community, upon which he depends absolutely.
