Jim Schmid’s Trail Quote of the Day #62 – December 14, 2015



Our Earth is in need of care. Generally governments and most citizens have a cavalier attitude towards nature. We use it, we play in it, we admire it, we exploit it, we talk about it, we enjoy it, but we seldom actively care for it.

—STEPHEN ALTSCHULER, The Mindful Hiker: On the Trail to Find a Path, 2004
