Thought for the Day

Love someone who does not deserve it.
~ Wendell Berry

Quoted from Wendell Berry's poem "Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front" from A Country of Marriage (Harcourt Brace, 1973; reprint, Counterpoint, 2013). The poem also is included in The Mad Farmer Poems (Counterpoint, 2014).

Read Omid Safi's reflection on Berry's poem at On Being. (The text of the complete poem is there.)
