In preperation for my local one straw revolutionary seed balling making party today I searched high and low online for quotes by the master himself. Below is one of my favorites. Please add one of yours. I'd especially love to see Sowing Seeds in the Desert Quotes - not as many of those in the virtual world and I of course have lent my copy out ;> - such a good reason to have a few copies on hand! Thanks for throwing the MF celebration Permies. Thanks Larry Korn for your huge part in spreading the MF seeds far and wide. ~Karen

Sowing Seeds in the Desert. Masanobu Fukuoka
hI KK, Wow! There are so many good quotes in all of his work. I love the one you picked out from Sowing Seeds in the Desert. One line on page 47 of the same book pretty much summarizes the whole thing, "Gradually I came to realize that the process of saving the desert of the human heart and revegetating the actual desert is actually the same thing."
