It’s the 86th birthday of environmental writer Wendell Berry,

born in Port Royal, Kentucky (1934).

 

Berry publishes poetry, essays, and novels, most of which reflect his concern for the natural world and the ways we interact with it.

Berry continues to live and work on his farm in his hometown.

Berry said, “Do unto those downstream as you would have those upstream do unto you.”

He said, “You can best serve civilization by being against what usually passes for it.”

And he said,

“Better than any argument is to rise at dawn and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup.”
