Farmer with a Pitchfork by Winslow Homer

 

“You mustn’t wish for another life. You mustn’t want to be somebody else. What you must do is this:
‘Rejoice evermore.
Pray without ceasing.
In everything give thanks.’
I am not all the way capable of so much, but those are the right instructions.”

–Wendell Berry, Hannah Coulter

Happy Birthday, Wendell Berry  (born August 5, 1934)–American novelist, poet, environmental activist, and farmer!
