"I know the feeling that each of us has, that we are unable to stem this dirty tide, that our actions alone are meaningless.  This is a dangerous trap for if individuals cease to try, how can the race as a whole succeed?  Let us each build our own land ethic first, stone by stone as if in a wall, and may we find that this fence is substantially complete, our neighbors busy building too all the while we struggled."
