“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Nice One Ash

Ashton Nichols, good guy, very funny guy, very nice to me when I was just a nipper. Great idea for a course, very very early (100 level) so it sinks in. 

Ash: “If an appreciation for the nonhuman world can emerge or be enhanced,” he says, “and even an understanding of that nonhuman world can be improved by using language and thinking about language and writing, that can only be a good thing.”
