Quote of the Damn Day: Wendell Berry

No matter how much one may love the world as a whole, one can live fully in it only by living responsibly in some small part of it. Where we live and who we live there with define the terms of our relationship to the world and to humanity. We thus come again to the paradox that one can become whole only by the responsible acceptance of one's partiality. 

--Wendell Berry of Port Royal, Kentucky

Does this mean it's okay to be a hermit?

Ms. Moon,
I don't give a flying fuck whether it is okay or not. Hermit is in my future. Definitely. I'm starting to prefer animals to people.
