“No matter how much one may love the world as a whole, one can live fully in it only by living responsibly in some small part of it.”

from Douglas Moore’s Art of Quotation

Art of Quotation

“No matter how much one may love the world as a whole, one can live fully in it only by living responsibly in some small part of it. Where we live and who we live there with define the terms of our relationship to the world and to humanity. We thus come again to the paradox that one can become whole only by the responsible acceptance of one’s partiality.”

Wendell Berry, writer, quote from “The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays of Wendell Berry”, p.118, Counterpoint
