Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Stories have the power to create social change and inspire community.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Rituals are the formulas by which harmony is restored.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “To be whole. To be complete. Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “There is something very sensual about a letter. The physical contact of pen to paper, the time set aside to focus thoughts, the folding of the paper into the envelope, licking it closed, addressing it, a chosen stamp, and then the release of the letter to the mailbox – are all acts of tenderness.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “My voice is born repeatedly in the fields of uncertainty.”

Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Find something that matters deeply to you and pursue it. Question. Stand. Speak. Act. Make us uncomfortable. Make us think.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Greed says there is never enough. Abundance says there is more than enough. Greed closes the door behind itself. Abundance opens the door for others.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I am interested and deeply curious about our need for a spiritual life, a life of greater meaning, and how we come to a more ethical view of life within our communities that is more inclusive than exclusive, one that is extended even beyond our own species.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I pray to the birds because they remind me of what I love rather than what I fear. And at the end of my prayers, they teach me how to listen.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Despair shows us the limit of our imagination. Imaginations shared create collaboration, collaboration creates community, and community inspires social change.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The birds and I share a natural history. It is a matter of rootedness, of living inside a place for so long that the mind and imagination fuse.”

Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “A shadow is never created in darkness. It is born of light. We can be blind to it and blinded by it. Our shadow asks us to look at what we don’t want to see.”

Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “An individual doesn’t get cancer, a family does.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Abundance is an expansion of energy. Abundance is a form of gratitude, a generosity, a modesty, a bow toward others – what we can give, what we can share, rather than what we can take.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “If a man knew what a woman never forgets, he would love her differently.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “We find our voice, we lose our voice, we retrieve it, honor it, and hopefully, learn how to share it with others and stand in the center of our power. Translation is a theme. Fear and courage are a theme.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Faith is not about finding meaning in the world, there may be no such thing – faith is the belief in our capacity to create meaningful lives.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The discipline of writing a memoir comes in the editing. This is where I cut, slash, and burn – where my creative mind is transformed into a ruthless one. No word escapes my scrutiny. It is here where I see what boundaries need to be set.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The heart is the path to wisdom because it dares to be vulnerable in the presence of power.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The only thing I have done religiously in my life is keep a journal. I have hundreds of them, filled with feathers, flowers, photographs, and words – without locks, open on my shelves.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “CONVERSATION is the vehicle for change.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Perhaps the most radical act we can commit is to stay home.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The world is holy. We are holy. All life is holy. Daily prayers are delivered on the lips of breaking waves, the whisperings of grasses, the shimmering of leaves.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Abundance is a dance with reciprocity – what we can give, what we can share, and what we receive in the process.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The act of civil disobedience is the act of taking our anger and turning it into sacred rage. It is a personal and collective gesture of resistance and insistance.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Creativity ignited a spark. In that moment, I saw that art is not peripheral, beauty is not optional, but a strategy for survival.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “What I fear and desire most in this world is passion. I fear it because it promises to be spontaneous, out of my control, unnamed, beyond my reasonable self. I desire it because passion has color, like the landscape before me. It is not pale. It is not neutral. It reveals the backside of the heart.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I write because it is dangerous, a bloody risk, like love, to form the words, to say the words, to touch the source, to be touched, to reveal how vulnerable we are, how transient.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Story is a relationship between the teller and the listener, a responsibility. After the listening you become accountable for the sacred knowledge that has been shared.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I have a sequence to my creative life. In spring and fall, I am above ground and commit to community. In the summer, I’m outside. It is a time for family. And in the winter, I am underground. Home. This is when I do my work as a writer – in hibernation. I write with the bears.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I take a deep breath and sidestep my fear and begin speaking from the place where beauty and bravery meet – within the chambers of a quivering heart.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “It is important to remember all true change begins at the margins and moves toward the center. This does not make the climate change movement marginal, it makes it muscular, organic, with a true movement toward the center.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Buddha says there are two kinds of suffering: the kind that leads to more suffering and the kind that brings an end to suffering.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Our correspondences have wings – paper birds that fly from my house to yours – flocks of ideas crisscrossing the country. Once opened, a connection is made. We are not alone in the world.”

Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Dying doesn’t cause suffering. Resistance to dying does.”
