Wendell Berry: Poet and Prophet from BillMoyers.com on Vimeo. At the end of a very long day, having thrown out my back, I sit at the TV hoping for something, anything to distract me. Instead, I get this man: Wendell Berry. He speaks with a respect for language, and a tenderness, that dissolve my self-pity and set my heart to nobler thinking. How will I rise again tomorrow--to love the earth, to love the earth I walk on, and to care compassionately for others in my neighborhood?
