“The legacy of the Wilderness Act is a legacy of care.
It is the act of loving beyond ourselves, beyond our own species, beyond our own time.
To honor wildlands and wild lives that we may never see, much less understand, is to acknowledge the world does not revolve around us.
The Wilderness Act is an act of respect that protects the land and ourselves from our own annihilation.”
Terry Tempest Williams, "The Glorious Indifference of Wilderness,"
