Lovely winter reading. I will send you to the originator for the long list: http://llamakeeper.com/abbey_quotes.html

"If America could be, once again, a nation of self-reliant farmers, craftsmen, hunters, ranchers, and artists, then the rich would have little power to dominate others. Neither to serve nor to rule: That was the American dream." -- Edward Abbey

This one is Freudian:
"Running the big rapids is like sex: half the fun lies in the anticipation. Two thirds of the thrill with the approach. The remainder is only ecstasy-or darkness." -- Edward Abbey

"The idea of wilderness needs no defense. It only needs more defenders."* --Edward Abbey

"Society is like a stew. If you don't keep it stirred up, you get a lot of
scum on top." --Edward Abbey

"The rich are not very nice. That's why they're rich." --Edward Abbey
...for the 99%.

*The Sierra Club and Earthjustice
