Quote of the Week: Self-Sufficiency

"It is neither possible nor particularly desirable to be entirely self-sufficient. Self-sufficiency implies a willful separation from others, whereas husbandry is all about sharing the work and sharing the knowledge. I love books, but the best advice will come from your neighbour, who has actually done the things that you want to do."

-Tom Hodgkinson, Brave Old World: A Month-By-Month Guide to Husbandry, or the Fine Art of Looking After Yourself, p. xv
