Wendell Berry Quotes: Late In The Night I Paythe Unrest I

Late In The Night I Pay
the Unrest I Own
to The Life That Has Never Lived
and Cannot Live Now.
What The World Could Be
is My Good Dream
and My Agony When, Dreaming It,
I Lie Awake And Turn
and Look Into The Dark.
I Think Of A Luxury
in The Sturdiness And Grace
of Necessary Things, Not
in Frivolity. That Would Heal
the Earth, And Heal Men.
But The End, Too, Is Part
of The Pattern, The Last
labor Of The Heart:
to Learn To Lie Still,
one With The Earth
again, And Let The World Go.
— Wendell Berry —
