THE GEM 21 FEB 2015 : The strong man and the waterfall channel their own path

THE GEM 21 FEB 2015

THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

image

It is imperative to maintain portions of the wilderness untouched
so that a tree will rot where it falls,
a waterfall will pour its curve without generating electricity,
a trumpeter swan may float on uncontaminated water
– and moderns may at least see
what their ancestors knew in their nerves and blood.

~ Bernand De Voto, Fortune, June 1947 ~
