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: “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: “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: “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: “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: “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: “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: “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: “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: “I love the interrelatedness of things.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “In the early days of the Mormon Church, stewardship toward the land was a priority. It was a matter of survival in the desert.”
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: “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: “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: “Wilderness is an antidote to the war within ourselves.”
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: “Word by word, the language of women so often begins with a whisper.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “To hear something asks very little of us. To listen places our entire being on notice.”
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: “What is evolution if not creative adaptation and the progression of our own souls?”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I still have great faith in democracy. I have great belief in the power of community.”
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: “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: “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: “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: “Artifacts are alive. Each has a voice. They remind us what it means to be human – that it is our nature to survive, to create works of beauty to be resourceful, to be attentive to the world we live in.”
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: “I feel that within the Mormon culture there is a tremendous amount of fear – of women’s voices, of questioning of authority, and ultimately of our own creativity.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “That is the wonderful ecological mind that Gregory Bateson talks about – the patterns that connect, the stories that inform and inspire us and teach us what is possible.”
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: “Hopefully there will come a time when I have no words, when I can honor and hold that kind of stillness that I so need, crave, and desire in the natural world.”
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: “Boundaries are fears made manifest, designed to protect us. I don’t want protection, I want freedom.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I think we are living a life without specificity, and then our lives become abstractions.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “True eloquence has an edge, sharp and clean.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Mythmaking is the evolutionary enterprise of translating truths.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “At the heart of Mormonism is a high regard for community. That is its strength. I have great respect for that.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Silence introduced in a society that worships noise is like the Moon exposing the night. Behind darkness is our fear. Within silence our voice dwells. What is required from both is that we be still. We focus. We listen. We see and we hear. The unexpected emerges.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I grew up in a culture in which it was a sin for a woman to speak out.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Our institutions and agencies are no longer working for us. It is time to reimagine the wilderness movement as a movement of direct action, time to reimagine our public lands as sanctuaries, refuges, and sacred lands. Time to rethink what is acceptable and what is not.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I admire how she protects her energy and understands her limitations.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “We are aching to come together and I think it has little to do with liberal or conservative discourse. I think it has to do with increasing disconnection with what is real and soul-serving.”
