I picked up Yosemite Place Names in a used bookstore this weekend. Found this great quote from Ansel Adams inside:
Our time is short, and the future is terrifyingly long...With reverence for life, and with restraint enough to leave some things as they are, we can continue approaching, and perhaps can attain, a new society at last -- one which is proportionate to nature.
Sometimes it's not easy, but we can hope.
