We shall never achieve harmony with land, any more than we shall achieve absolute justice or liberty for people. In these higher aspirations, the important thing is not to achieve but to strive.
Harmony with land is like harmony with a friend; you cannot cherish his right hand and chop off his left.
We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.
Conservation is a state of harmony between men and land.
To keep every cog and wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering.
