Maybe NextTime

The children are innocent until proven guilty. For their sake, not ours, we must soldier on, muddling our way toward frugality, simplicity, liberty, community, until some kind of sane and rational balance is achieved between our ability to love and our cockeyed ambition to conquer and dominate everything in sight.

Mr Abbey, in his strolls thru the desert, must have gleaned much from the solitude.
Thanks for the thought, Ed, you lived not long enough.

Lovely quote, Goatman. The adjective, "cockeyed" is very forgiving isn't it?
It would sound different without that one compassionate word. Not only a sane sentiment, but kind - considering the message. Almost forgiving.
