"People who root themselves in places

are likelier to know and care for those places

than are people who root themselves in ideas.

When we cease to be migrants and become inhabitants,

we might begin to pay enough heed and respect to where we are.


By settling in, we have a chance of making a durable home for ourselves,

our fellow creatures,

and our descendants."
