England has never enjoyed a genuine social revolution. Maybe that’s what’s wrong with that dear, tepid, vapid, insipid, stuffy, little country  (Edward Abbey Quotes) I have written much about many good places. But the best places of all, I have never mentioned  (Edward Abbey Quotes) A city man is a home anywhere, for all big cities are much alike. But a country man has a place where he belongs, where he always returns, and where, when the time comes, he is willing to die  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The highest treason, the meanest treason, is to deny the holiness of this little blue planet on which we journey through the cold void of space  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The ready availability of suicide, like sex and alcohol, is one of life’s basic consolations  (Edward Abbey Quotes) I find more and more, as I grow older, that I prefer women to men, children to adults, animals to humans... And rocks to living things? No, I’m not that old yet  (Edward Abbey Quotes) For women, the sexual act is a means to a higher end. For a man, it is an end in itself  (Edward Abbey Quotes) I would like to evoke the sense of wonder and magic in the reader but without invoking the mystical, the supernatural or the transcendent  (Edward Abbey Quotes) I’m tired of doing what I don’t want to do to live the way I don’t want to live  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Where all pretend to be thinking alike, it’s likely that no one is thinking at all  (Edward Abbey Quotes) A society that feels itself too poor to afford the preservation of wilderness is not worthy of the name civilization  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Has joy any survival value in the operations of evolution? I suspect that it does; I suspect that the morose and fearful are doomed to quick extinction. Where there is no joy there can be no courage; and without courage all other virtues are useless  (Edward Abbey Quotes) There’s another disadvantage to the use of the flashlight: like many other mechanical gadgets it tends to separate a man from the world around him. If I switch it on my eyes adapt to it and I can see only the small pool of light it makes in front of me; I am isolated. Leaving the flashlight in my pocket where it belongs, I remain a part of the environment I walk through and my vision though limited has no sharp or definite boundary  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The moral duty of the free writer is to begin his work at home: to be a critic of his own community, his own country, his own government, his own culture. The more freedom the writer possesses, the greater the moral obligation to play the role of critic  (Edward Abbey Quotes) We can have wilderness without freedom; we can have wilderness without human life at all, but we cannot have freedom without wilderness, we cannot have freedom without leagues of open space beyond the cities, where boys and girls, men and women, can live at least part of their lives under no control but their own desires and abilities, free from any and all direct administration by their fellow men  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The one thing... that is truly ugly is the climate of hate and intimidation, created by a noisy few, which makes the decent majority reluctant to air in public their views on anything controversial... Where all pretend to be thinking alike, it’s likely that no one is thinking at all  (Edward Abbey Quotes) In the first place you can’t see anything from a car; you’ve got to get out of the goddamned contraption and walk, better yet crawl, on hands and knees, over the sandstone and through the thornbush and cactus. When traces of blood begin to mark your trail you’ll begin to see something, maybe. Probably not  (Edward Abbey Quotes) I wait. Now the night flows back, the mighty stillness embraces and includes me; I can see the stars again and the world of starlight. I am twenty miles or more from the nearest fellow human, but instead of loneliness I feel loveliness. Loveliness and a quiet exultation  (Edward Abbey Quotes) If a man’s imagination were not so weak, so easily tired, if his capacity for wonder not so limited, he would abandon forever such fantasies of the supernal. He would learn to perceive in water, leaves and silence more than sufficient of the absolute and marvelous, more than enough to console him for the loss of the ancient dream  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The longest journey begins with a single step, not with the turn of an ignition key. That’s the best thing about walking, the journey itself. It doesn’t much matter whether you get where you’re going or not. You’ll get there anyway. Every good hike brings you eventually back home. Right where you started  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The purpose of love, sex, and marriage is the production and raising of children. But look about you: Most people have no business having children. They are unqualified, either genetically or culturally or both, to reproduce such sorry specimens as themselves. Of all our privileges, the license to breed is the one most grossly abused  (Edward Abbey Quotes) How strange and wonderful is our home, our earth, with its swirling vaporous atmosphere, its flowing and frozen liquids, its trembling plants, its creeping, crawling, climbing creatures, the croaking things with wings that hang on rocks and soar through the fog, the furry grass, the scaly seas  (Edward Abbey Quotes) We need wilderness because we are wild animals. Everyone needs a place where he can go to go crazy in peace. For the terror, freedom, and delirium. Because we need brutality and raw adventure, because men and women first learned to love in, under, and all around trees, because we need for every pair of feet and legs about ten leagues of naked nature, crags to leap from, mountains to measure by, deserts to finally die in when the heart fails  (Edward Abbey Quotes) We are kindred all of us, killer and victim, predator and prey, me and the sly coyote, the soaring buzzard, the elegant gopher snake, and trembling cottontail, the foul worms that feed on our entrails; all of them, all of us. Long live diversity, long live the earth!  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Guns don’t kill people; people kill people. Of course, people with guns kill more people. But that’s only natural. It’s hard. But it’s fair  (Edward Abbey Quotes) We need wilderness whether or not we ever set foot in it. We need a refuge even though we may not ever need to go there  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Knowing now what we have learned, unless the need were urgent, I could no more sink the blade of an ax into the tissues of a living tree than I could drive it into the flesh of a fellow human  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Love can defeat that nameless terror. Loving one another, we take the sting from death. Loving our mysterious blue planet, we resolve riddles and dissolve all enigmas in contingent bliss  (Edward Abbey Quotes) With the neutron bomb, which destroys life but not property, capitalism has found the weapon of its dreams  (Edward Abbey Quotes)
