- "What is such a resource worth? Anything it costs.

Every green natural place we save saves a fragment of our sanity and gives us a little more hope that we have a future." - Wallace Stegner

Thanks, but we're staying right here in the mud where we belong. You're not going to see us flying full-tilt boogie into a sliding glass door." - Christopher Moore
