Midwest Nature Quote of the Week

There was a calm wordlessness over the water, a savage evening brightness, the presence of quick life, quick death, multitudes of fish, birds, and fishing men brought there by inexorable greed, balanced by the ages; and it was not something we asked for necessarily, as part of the acceptable world, but I took it as an offering, in answer to all need.

John Hay, In Defense of Nature
