A community is the mental and spiritual condition of knowing that the place is shared, and that the people who share the place define and limit the possibilities of each other’s lives. It is the knowledge that people
have of each other, their concern for each other, their trust in each other, the freedom with which they come and go among themselves.”
— Wendell Berry
