"When the majority of people were living off the land, with little mobility, it was natural to feel at home at certain places. One stayed at home, left home, or went home. But home was not a building. The advertising of homes to be bought is not an offer of a home in the connotation relevant in our analysis. Home was where one belonged. Being “part of myself,” the idea of home delimited an ecological self, rich in internal relations to what is now called environment. But humanity today suffers from a place-corrosive process." — Arne Næss, Ecology of Wisdom (Penguin Modern Classics) (p. 45)
