Monday thought of the week: save the child in nature

A thought:

Passion is lifted from the earth itself by the muddy hands of the young: it travels along grass-stained sleeves to the heart. If we are going to save the environment, we must also save the child in nature.

Richard Louv, Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder (Chapel Hill, NC: Algonquin Books, 2008 [2005]), p. 153
