“Don’t ever let yourself be a victim. Our culture thrives on victimhood. We love to invoke ‘I can’t’ and make excuses. The truth is we tend to make time and have money for what we think is important. It’s okay to eat junk, but be honest and admit that it’s because you don’t care enough or you’re too lazy, or whatever. You and I can’t change everyone else, but we can sure change the one looking at us in the mirror. Resolve to do that, and you’ll lead by example and find the world lining up to follow. Be the change you want to see and refuse to blame others or circumstances.”

-Joel Salatin on convenience food and cooking for ourselves, from Folks, this ain’t normal: A Farmer’s Advise for Happier Hens, Healthier People and a Better World
