“America is a country of inventors, and the greatest of inventors are the newspaper men.”
• “Great discoveries and improvements invariably involve the cooperation of many minds. I may be given credit for having blazed the trail, but when I look at the subsequent developments I feel the credit is due to others rather to myself.”
“A true inventor can no more help inventing than he can help thinking or breathing.”

John was also the father of mathematician Daniel Bernoulli (1700-1782) who is remembered for his principle of fluid mechanics stating that “as the speed of a moving fluid increases, the pressure within the fluid decreases” - or why an airplane wing is shaped the way it is.

Bringing It to the Table:
On Farming and Food

Wendell Berry
b. 8-5-1934; Henry Co., KY

Author and farmer Wendell Berry is well known for his advocacy of “sustainable agriculture, appropriate technologies, healthy rural communities, connection to place, the pleasures of good food, husbandry, good work, local economics, the miracle of life, fidelity, frugality, reverence, and the interconnectedness of life.”

Berry taught creative writing at the University of Kentucky.

Wendell Berry quotes ~
• “Don't own so much clutter that you will be relieved to see your house catch fire.”
• “The care of the Earth is our most ancient and most worthy, and after all our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it and to foster its renewal is our only hope.”
• “Do unto those downstream as you would have those upstream do unto you.”
• “It may be that when we no longer know which way to go that we have come to our real journey. The mind that is not baffled is not employed. The impeded stream is the one that sings.”
• “A community is the mental and spiritual condition of knowing that the place is shared, and that the people who share the place define and limit the possibilities of each other's lives. It is the knowledge that people have of each other, their concern for each other, their trust in each other, the freedom with which they come and go among themselves.”
• “Let us have the candor to acknowledge that what we call “the economy” or “the free market” is less and less distinguishable from warfare.”
• “A corporation, essentially, is a pile of money to which a number of persons have sold their moral allegiance.”
• “Rats and roaches live by competition under the laws of supply and demand; it is the privilege of human beings to live under the laws of justice and mercy.”
• “Whether we and our politicians know it or not, Nature is party to all our deals and decisions, and she has more votes, a longer memory, and a sterner sense of justice than we do.”
• “One of the most important resources that a garden makes available for use, is the gardener's own body. A garden gives the body the dignity of working in its own support. It is a way of rejoining the human race.”
• “We have lived our lives by the assumption that what was good for us would be good for the world. We have been wrong. We must change our lives so that it will be possible to live by the contrary assumption, that what is good for the world will be good for us. And that requires that we make the effort to know the world and learn what is good for it.”
• “Nobody can discover the world for somebody else. Only when we discover it for ourselves does it become common ground and a common bond and we cease to be alone.”
• “There are no unsacred places; there are only sacred places and desecrated places.”

• “If we accept and acquiesce in the face of discrimination, we accept the responsibility ourselves. We should, therefore, protest openly everything . . . that smacks of discrimination or slander.”
• “Cease to be a drudge, seek to be an artist.”
• “The whole world opened to me when I learned to read.”
• “The true worth of a race must be measured by the character of its womenhood.”
• “Next to God we are indebted to women, first for life itself, and then for making it worth living.”
