Food for Thought

August 31, 2013

By indulging a limitless desire for a supposedly limitless quantity, one gives up all the things that are most desirable. One abandons any hope of the formal completeness, grace, and beauty that come only by subordinating one’s life to the whole of which it is part, and thus one is condemned to the life of a fragment, forever unfinished and incomplete, forever greedy. One loses, that is the sense of human life as an artifice, a part made imaginatively whole.”
 
– Wendell Berry, The Way of Ignorance
