Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Awe is the moment when ego surrenders to wonder. This is our inheritance – the beauty before us. We cry. We cry out. There is nothing sentimental about facing the desert bare. It is a terrifying beauty.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “When you look at the Pueblo communities along the Rio Grande, when you talk to the Navajo people, the Ute people, and certainly the native peoples of California who still have their communities intact, it is what they have always known: that we are not apart from nature but a part of it.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Our public lands – whether a national park or monument, wildlife refuge, forest or prairie – make each one of us land-rich. It is our inheritance as citizens of a country called America.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “When Emily Dickinson writes, “Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul,” she reminds us, as the birds do, of the liberation and pragmatism of belief.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “There are things within the culture that absolutely enrage me, and for me it is sacred rage. But it’s not just peculiar to Mormonism – it’s any patriarchy that I think stops, thwarts, or denies our creativity.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Mother had one quilt square made by a friend of hers framed, and hung it in her bathroom, where she saw it first thing in the morning. When I asked her why this mattered, she said, “It represents how women piece together their lives from the scraps left over for them.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The question I’m constantly asking myself is: what are we afraid of? I think it’s important for us to follow that line of fear, because that is ultimately our line of growth.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Sometimes you have to disclaim your country and inhabit another before you can return to your own.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I think wherever we are, we can create an atmosphere of openness and trust, where women and those who feel marginalized feel safe to speak the truth of their lives.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Who wants to be a goddess when we can be human? Perfection is a flaw disguised as control.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I would like to hear the words “public lands” spoken in every election debate, with candidates holding both government and corporations accountable in their oversight and use. The fact of more than three hundred million visits to our national parks last year tells me I am not alone.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I am a Mormon woman, I am not orthodox. It is the lens through which I see the world. I hear the Tabernacle Choir and it still makes me weep.”
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.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “What is evolution if not creative adaptation and the progression of our own souls?”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “What is private belongs to me alone. What is personal belongs to all of us through the shared experience of being human.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “To acknowledge that which we cannot see, to give definition to that which we don’t know, to create divine order out of chaos, is the religious dance.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “It was fascinating listening to this wonderful biologist, Sarah Allen Miller, speak of her relationship to these beings for 20 years.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Every day, I walked. It was not a meditation, but survival, one foot in the front of the other, with my eyes focused down, trying to stay steady.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I remember as a child, my grandmother read to me Silent Spring. It was incomprehensible to me that there could be a world without birdsong.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “We borrow. We steal. We purchase what we need and buy what we don’t. We acquire things, people, places, all in the process of losing ourselves. Busyness is the religion of distraction. I cannot talk to you, because I have too much to do.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Space is the twin sister of time. If we have open space then we have open time to breathe, to dream, to dare, to play, to pray to move freely, so freely, in a world our minds have forgotten, but our bodies remember.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The pain that we feel when we are making love with someone is that we know it will end. It’s that paradoxical response of joy and suffering.”

Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “It is a day of angled light and flat-bottomed clouds floating in a turquoise sky.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Wilderness offers us a template to an enlightened citizenship. Instead of only caring for ourselves, we are invited to care for species other than our own.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “What every woman knows is that we are remade each time we make love, each time we give birth; each time we feel the blood making its way through our body into our cupped hands, we remember it is our destiny to make change.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Each horizon, each place holds its own evolutionary power be it the prairie or the plateaus, the mountains or the marshes at Great Salt Lake. For me, this is the nature of peace. Our task is to learn how to see it, feel it, hear it, and care for these places as our own home ground.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I can tell that in Refuge the question that was burning in me was, how do we find refuge in change? Everything around me that was familiar had been turned inside out with my mother’s diagnosis of ovarian cancer and with the Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge being flooded.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Wilderness is an antidote to the war within ourselves.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I believe a politics of place emerges where we are deeply accountable to our communities, to our neighborhoods, to our home.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “To hear something asks very little of us. To listen places our entire being on notice.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Species other than man have rights, too. Having finished all the requisites of our proud, materialistic civilization, our neon-lit society, does nature, which is the basis of our existence, have the right to live on? Do we have enough reverence for life to concede to wilderness this right?”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Boundaries are fears made manifest, designed to protect us. I don’t want protection, I want freedom.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I trace my genealogy back to the land. Human and wild, I can see myself whole, not isolated but integrated in time and place. Our genetic makeup is not so different from the collared lizard, the canyon wren now calling, or the great horned owl who watches from the cottonwood near the creek. Mountain lion is as mysterious a creature as any soul I know. Is not the tissue of family always a movement between harmony and distance?”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Every time we make love to a human being, fully, we are making love to everything that lives and breathes. In that sense it becomes communion. It is a sacrament.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Conversation is the vehicle for change. We test our ideas. We hear our own voice in a concert with another. And inside those pauses of listening, we approach new territories of thought. A good argument, call it a discussion, frees us. Words fly out of our mouths like threatened birds. Once released, they may never return. If they do, they have chosen home and the bird-worms are calmed into an ars poetica.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I think the whole idea of home is central to who we are as human beings.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Democracy is an insecure landscape.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “There is an art to writing, and it is not always disclosure. The act itself can be beautiful, revelatory, and private.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I believe that when we are fully present, we not only live well, we live well for others.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Is this the curse of modernity, to live in a world without judgment, without perspective, no context for understanding or distinguishing what is real and what is imagined, what is manipulated and what is by chance beautiful, what is shadow and what is flesh?”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “When I write, I put one foot in front of the other. It’s an act of faith. I just follow my heart.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “A trip to the hospital is always a descent into the macabre. I have never trusted a place with shiny floors.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I believe capitalism will eventually be replaced by a communitarian ethic where the rights and care of all beings will be taken into consideration, not just the greed of a corporate few.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “This is a landscape that should not be sold.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I believe that spiritual resistance – the ability to stand firm at the center of our convictions when everything around us asks us to concede, that our capacity to face the harsh measures of a life, comes from the deep quiet of listening to the land, the river the rocks. There is a resonance of humility that has evolved with the earth. It is the best retrieved in solitude amidst the stillness of days in the desert.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Not everything is meant for all to hear.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Without manners, violence enters the room. Without the decency of imagination, narcissism leads.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I still have great faith in democracy. I have great belief in the power of community.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The choices and decisions we make in terms of how we use the land ultimately affect our very DNA. Environmental issues are life issues.”
