The Unforeseen (2007)
Gary Bradley: Nature in your life, very quickly becomes God. A God who gives great abundance at times... and takes everything away at times.
[on growing up on a farm]
Robert Redford: We're trying to get at something deeper here... which is, that force, bigger than all of us, here longer than all of us that designed something that is still mysterious to us, that we're trying to figure out and put order to... Well, that's the spirit of something, and it's best reflected in natural places.
Roy Scourly: Just imagine, it all kinda just happened all at once. We were riding the wave... and everyone was doing great... and all of a sudden, all the banks started failing. And you'd go to work and everyone was losing their home, or their car was being repossessed... And then the times got worse... And then they got worse.
Wendell Berry: I walked the deserted prospect of the modern mind - where nothing lived or happened that had not been foreseen. What had been foreseen was the coming of the Stranger with Money. All that had been before had been destroyed: A new earth had appeared in place of the old, made entirely according to plan. Some small human understanding seemed to have arrayed itself there without limit, and to have cast its grid upon the sky, the stars, the rising and the setting sun. I could not see past it but to its ruin.
