'We have given up the understanding - dropped it out of our language and so out of our thought - that we and our country create one another; that our land passes in and out of our bodies just as our bodies pass in and out of our land; that as we and our land are part of one another, so all who are living as neighbors here, human and plant and animal, are part of one another, and so cannot possibly flourish alone; that, therefore, our culture and our place are images of each other and inseparable from each other and so neither can be better that the other.' 
Wendell Berry in John Inge, A Christian Theology of Place, p.134.
