Finally, a tiny chapter for the odds and ends that didn't fit elsewhere... but then I realized there is a theme... the big picture.  A few of the quotes:

All the political, social, and economic improvements, all the technical progress cannot have any regenerating significance, so long as our inner life remains as it is at present. The more the intelligence unveils and violates the secrets of Nature, the more the danger increases and the heart shrinks.
—Nikos Kazantzakis

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius—and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction.
—E.F. Schumacher

All really great things are happening in slow and inconspicuous ways.
—Leo Tolstoy

My work is loving the world.
—Mary Oliver
