'Whoever really has considered the lilies of the fields and the birds of the air and pondered the improbability of their existence will hardly balk at the turning of water into wine which was, after all, a very small miracle. We forget the greater miracle and still continuing miracle by which water with soil and sunlight is turned into grapes.' 
Wendell Berry, 'Christianity and the Survival of Creation' in Sex, Economy, Freedom and Community, p.103.
