"I’m truly sorry Man’s dominion
Has broken Nature’s social union ..."
Robert Burns (1759-1796), To a Mouse
Something to ponder: "The last word of ignorance is the man who says of an animal or plant: 'What
good is it?' If the land mechanism as a whole is good, then every part is good, whether we
understand it or not. If the biota, in the course of aeons, has built something we like, but do not
understand, then who but a fool would discard seemingly useless parts? To keep every cog and
wheel is the first precaution of intelligent tinkering."
Aldo Leopold, The Sand County Almanac
