By patience and determination, rather than by a harsh upsetting of tradition, we move toward our national aspirations.... This is the way we get things done in America. One man tells another, does what he can, till the sum of these efforts grows into a national aspiration-a precious goal. Then occurs our miracle of democracy: because the groundwork has been surely laid, the goal is already within our grasp.

— Newton B. Drury

We are not so poor we must destroy our wilderness, nor so rich we can afford to.


We're not so poor that we have to spend our wilderness or so rich that we can afford to.
