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: “Greed is a deprivation of abundance, a hoarding, a constriction of energy.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Literature was life, and reading became an open door to a world beyond the familiar.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “There is comfort in keeping what is sacred inside us not as a secret, but as a prayer.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “To write requires an ego, a belief that what you say matters. Writing also requires an aching curiosity leading you to discover, uncover, what is gnawing at your bones.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I write about nuclear tests in Refuge – “The Clan of One-Breasted Women.” With so many of the women in my family being diagnosed with breast cancer, mastectomies led to one-breasted women. I believe it is the result of nuclear fallout.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The time had come to protest with the heart, that to deny one’s genealogy with the earth was to commit treason against one’s soul.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I write to create red in a world that often appears black and white.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “There are two important days in a woman’s life: the day she is born and the day she finds out why.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I believe every woman should own at least one pair of red shoes.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “We can choose to move like water rather than be molded like clay. Life spirals in and then spirals out on any given day. It does not have to be one way, one truth, one voice. Nor does love have to be all or nothing. Neither does power. What is positive and what is negative is not absolute.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I am slowly, painfully discovering that my refuge is not found in my mother, my grandmother, of even the birds of Bear River. My refuge exists in my capacity to love. If I can learn to love death then I can begin to find refuge in change.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The Japanese have a word – aware – which, in my understanding is, again, that full range – both the joy and the sorrow of our life. One does not exist without the other. And I really feel that.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Choosing with integrity means finding ways to speak up that honor your reality, the reality of others, and your willingness to meet in the center of that large field. It’s hard sometimes.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “What I mean by “An Unspoken Hunger.” It’s a hunger that cannot be quelled by material things. It’s a hunger that cannot be quelled by the constant denial.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “We hold the moon in our bellies and fire in our hearts. We bleed We give milk. We are the mothers of first words. These words grow. They are our children. They are our stores and poems.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “For me, it always comes back to the land, respecting the land, the wildlife, the plants, the rivers, mountains, and deserts, the absolute essential bedrock of our lives. This is the source of where my power lies, the source of where all our power lies.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I know, that Rilke quote – “Beauty is the beginning of terror” – I think about that a lot. It’s that realization that we are so small, and yet we are so large in our capacity to relate to the beauty of things.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Water is nothing if not ingemination, an encore to the tenacity of life.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “My body is a compass – and it does not lie.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Shards of glass can cut and wound or magnify a vision.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “There is an unraveling, a great unraveling that I believe is occurring. Not without its pain, not without its frustration. Perhaps the fundamentalism we see within America right now is in response to these changes. We fear change, and so we cling to what is known.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “When silence is a choice, it is an unnerving presence. When silence is imposed, it is censorship.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “We forget the nature of true power. The power within is abundance. The power without is greed.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “When one woman doesn’t speak, other women get hurt.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Perhaps the Wilderness we fear is the pause between our own heartbeats, the silence that reminds us we live by grace.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “To me, writing is about how we see. The writers I want to read teach me how to see-see the world differently. In my writing there is no separation between how I observe the world and how I write the world. We write through our eyes. We write through our body. We write out of what we know.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Abundance is rooted in community, not individualism. Abundance is what is before our eyes, but we cannot see when we are blinded by greed.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Beauty is transformed over time, and not without destruction.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I have inherited a belief in community, the promise that a gathering of the spirit can both create and change culture. In the desert, change is nurtured even in stone by wind, by water, through time.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The climate change movement is a river overflowing seeping into every nook and cranny.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Shards of glass can cut and wound or magnify a vision. Mosaic celebrates brokenness and the beauty of being brought together.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I write to make peace with the things I cannot control. I write to create fabric in the world that often appears black and white. I write to meet my ghosts. I write to begin a dialogue. I write to imagine things differently and in imagining things differently perhaps the world will change.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The danger is in what we codify, commodify, and exploit.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I return to the wilderness to remember what I have forgotten, that the world can be wholesome and beautiful, that the harmony and integrity of ecosystems at peace is a mirror to what we have lost.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The unexpected action of deep listening can create a space of transformation capable of shattering complacency and despair.”

Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “No separation between the spiritual and the physical. It is all one.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “To withhold words is power. But to share our words with others, openly and honestly, is also power.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Hope radiates outward from the center of our concerns. Hope dares us to stare the miraculous in the eye and have the courage not to look away.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Our family has made its livelihood from the land, digging trenches for hundreds of miles cross-country. You could say this is a real paradox, to destroy the land, yet love it at the same time. This is a typical story of Westerners, how we build community through change.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Our sense of community and compassionate intelligence must be extended to all life forms, plants, animals, rocks, rivers, and human beings. This is the story of our past and it will be the story of our future.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I could walk forever with beauty. Our steps are not measured in miles but in the amount of time we are pulled forward by awe. This is another gift from our national parks, to be led by the vistas, to forget what nags us at home and remember what sustains us, the horizon.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Our ability to travel is a privilege. But it is also a choice. Money is time. Where do we spend out time? Wilderness is not my leisure or my recreation. It is my sanity.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “This is the sorcery of literature. We are healed by our stories.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “If you take away all the prairie dogs, there will be no one to cry for the rain.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Social change can be seen as a mosaic, taking that which is broken and creating something new.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Desert strategies are useful: In times of drought, pull your resources inward; when water is scarce, find moisture in seeds; to stay strong and supple, send a taproot down deep; run when required, hide when necessary; when hot go underground; do not fear darkness, it’s where one comes alive.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I write from the place of inquiry. The first draft is a discovery period to see what I know and what I don’t know. My task is simply to follow the words. There are surprises along the way. I just have to get it down. Call it the sculptor’s clay.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Words empower us, move us beyond our suffering and set us free. This is the sorcery of literature. We are healed by our stories.”
