“The planet does not need more ‘successful’ people”

Posted on Friday, December 12, 2008 by No comments yet

Another outstanding quote provided by a Front Porch Forum member.  Thanks to Annie Dunn Watson in Essex…

“The plain fact is that the planet does not need more ‘successful’ people. But it does desperately need more peacemakers, healers, restorers, storytellers, and lovers of every shape and form. It needs people who live well in their places. It needs people of moral courage willing to join the fight to make the world habitable and humane. And these needs have little to do with success as our culture has defined it.”  –David Orr
