High technology has done us one great service: It has retaught us the delight of performing simple and primordial tasks - chopping wood, building a fire, drawing water from a spring  (Edward Abbey Quotes) I suppose each of us has his own fantasy of how he wants to die. I would like to go out in a blaze of glory, myself, or maybe simply disappear someday, far out in the heart of the wilderness I love, all by myself, alone with the Universe and whatever God may happen to be looking on. Disappear - and never return. That’s my fantasy  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Why can’t we simply borrow what is useful to us from Buddhism, Hinduism, Taoism, especially Zen, as we borrow from Christianity, science, American Indian traditions and world literature in general, including philosophy, and let the rest go hang? Borrow what we need but rely principally upon our own senses, common sense and daily living experience  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Yes, there are plenty of heroes and heroines everywhere you look. They are not famous people. They are generally obscure and modest people doing useful work, keeping their families together and taking an active part in the health of their communities, opposing what is evil (in one way or another) and defending what is good. Heroes do not want power over others  (Edward Abbey Quotes) When guns are outlawed, only the Government will have guns. The Government - and a few outlaws. If that happens, you can count me among the outlaws  (Edward Abbey Quotes) My loyalties will not be bound by national borders, or confined in time by one nation’s history, or limited in the spiritual dimension by one language and culture. I pledge my allegiance to the damned human race, and my everlasting love to the green hills of Earth, and my intimations of glory to the singing stars, to the very end of space and time  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Life is hard? True - but let’s love it anyhow, though it breaks every bone in our bodies  (Edward Abbey Quotes) The function of football, soccer, basketball and other passion-sports in modern industrial society is the transference of boredom, frustration, anger and rage into socially acceptable forms of combat. A temporary substitute for war; for nationalism; identification with something bigger than the self  (Edward Abbey Quotes) If America could be, once again, a nation of self-reliant farmers, craftsmen, hunters, ranchers, and artists, then the rich would have little power to dominate others. Neither to serve nor to rule: That was the American dream  (Edward Abbey Quotes) A journey into the wilderness is the freest, cheapest, most nonprivileged of pleasures. Anyone with two legs and the price of a pair of army surplus combat boots may enter  (Edward Abbey Quotes) This is the most beautiful place on Earth. There are many such places. Every man, every woman, carries in heart and mind the image of the ideal place, the right place, the one true home, known or unknown, actual or visionary  (Edward Abbey Quotes) New Yorkers like to boast that if you can survive in New York, you can survive anywhere. But if you can survive anywhere, why live in New York?  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Is there a God? Who knows? Is there an angry unicorn on the dark side of the moon?  (Edward Abbey Quotes) What’s the difference between the Lone Ranger and God? There really is a Lone Ranger  (Edward Abbey Quotes) What did Jesus say to the headwaiter at the Last Supper? ‘Separate checks, please.’  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Only a fool would leave the enjoyment of rainbows to the opticians. Or give the science of optics the last word on the matter  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Cold morning on Aztec Peak Fire Lookout. First, build fire in old stove. Second, start coffee. Then, heat up last night’s pork chops and spinach for breakfast. Why not? And why the hell not?  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Nobody seems more obsessed by diet than our antimaterialist, otherworldly, New Age, spiritual types. But if the material world is merely illusion, an honest guru should as content with Budweiser and bratwurst as with raw carrot juice, tofu, and seaweed slime  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Some of my ancestors fought in the American Revolution. A few more wore red coats, a few wore blue coats, and the rest wore no coats at all. We never did figure out who won that war  (Edward Abbey Quotes) In the Soviet Union, government controls industry. In the United States, industry controls government. That is the principal structural difference between the two great oligarchies of our time  (Edward Abbey Quotes) King Arthur and his armored goons of the Round Table functioned as the Politburo of a slave state: Camelot. Of all who have written on the Matter of Arthur, from Malory to White, only Mark Twain understood this. But Mark Twain was a great writer  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Our contemporary Tories prefer the term ‘ordered liberty’ to ‘freedom’. The word ‘freedom’ scares them; it has too much of a paleolithic ring to it  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Spartacus, like Jesus, was also crucified by the Romans. And for equally good reasons  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Except for the scale of the operation, there was nothing unusual about Hitler’s massacre of the Jews. Genocide’s an old tradition, as human as mother love or cherry pie  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Desire, said the Buddha, is the cause of suffering. But without desire, what delight?  (Edward Abbey Quotes) My Aunt Ida at age eighty-three: ‘Yeah,’ she said, ‘I’ll be dead pretty soon. And frankly, I don’t give a damn.’  (Edward Abbey Quotes) One must be reasonable in one’s demands on life. For myself, all that I ask is: (1) accurate information; (2) coherent knowledge; (3) deep understanding; (4) infinite loving wisdom; (5) no more kidney stones, please  (Edward Abbey Quotes) I am happy to be a regional writer. My region is the American West, old Mexico, West Virginia, New York, Europe, Australia, the human heart, and the male groin  (Edward Abbey Quotes) Jane Austen: Getting into her books is like getting in bed with a cadaver. Something vital is lacking; namely, life  (Edward Abbey Quotes) James Joyce buried himself in his great work. _Finnegan’s Wake_ is his monument and his tombstone. A dead end  (Edward Abbey Quotes)
