A Quote by Ellen Goodman on grace, home, justice, life, luxury, planning, rest, thinking, time, and vacation

What do I want to take home from my summer vacation? Time. The wonderful luxury of being at rest. The days when you shut down the mental machinery that keeps life on track and let life simply wander. The days when you stop planning, analyzing, thinking and just are. Summer is my period of grace.

A Quote by Edward Paul Abbey on boredom, earth, good, hunger, life, love, loyalty, luxury, necessity, needs, paradise, spirit, water, and 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 (1927 - 1989)
