Wendell Berry On Despair

Wendell BerryWendell Berry (August 05, 1934 -)

When despair for the world grows in me…I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought or grief.  I come into the presence of still water.  And I feel above me the day-blind stars waiting with their light.  For a time I rest in the grace of the world, and am free.
