"Our tools are better than we are, and grow better faster than we do. They suffice to crack the atom, to command the tides, but they do not suffice for the oldest task in human history, to live on a piece of land without spoiling it."

~~Aldo Leopold, “Engineering and Conservation” in The River of the Mother of God and Other Essays (1938)
