Quotes About Connection To Land

Im an artist living in a small, Scottish village. So one would expect to be treated with some sort of caution.

Community, then, is an indispensable term in any discussion of the connection between people and land. A healthy community is a form that includes all the local things that are connected by the larger, ultimately mysterious form of the Creation.

All neighbors are included. (pg. 202-203, Conservation and Local Economy)

— Raymond Williams

— Robert Southey
