be a half-hearted fanatic

Today, while overlooking the Halifax harbour and making funny faced selfies i stumbled into some great advice found in the heart of a grassroots grant-writing book:

” be as I am – a reluctant enthusiast, a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. ”
– Edward Abbey

It’s especially important to love the world we fight for.
