“To live, we must daily break the body and shed the blood of Creation.
When we do this knowingly, lovingly, skillfully, reverently, it is a sacrament.
When we do it ignorantly, greedily, clumsily, destructively, it is a desecration.
In such desecration we condemn ourselves to spiritual and moral loneliness, and others to want.”
― Wendell Berry, The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays
