"As for my keeping on keeping on, I do believe that we are in serious trouble — maybe fatal trouble, that is, maybe it’s too late to stop the express train we’ve been riding on — but as I say to my students, suppose it’s too late? What are we going to do? Lie around reading novels and eating bon-bons? I think we should all try to live as responsibly as possible because it’s the right thing to do, and it’s what’s most likely to give our lives purpose. Working in the garden makes me happy, and after the incredibly heavy rainstorms and flood warnings of the last week, I had no flooding!"
