Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I worry, that we are a people in a process of great transition and we are forgetting what we are connected to. We are losing our frame of reference.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “We’re animals, I think we forget that. I think there is an ancient archetypal memory that still exists within us. If we deny that, what is the cost? So I do think it’s what binds us as human beings.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Style is like voice, it grows organically from the truth of one’s own life experience. Not in terms of chapters, per se, but in terms of stories. It is the story itself that creates an inherent structure.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Perhaps it is not so much what we learn that matters in these moments of awe and wonder, but what we feel in relationship to a world beyond ourselves, even beyond our own species.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “Without manners, violence enters the room. Without the decency of imagination, narcissism leads.”

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.”

Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “This is what we can promise the future: a legacy of care. That we will be good stewards and not take too much or give back too little, that we will recognize wild nature for what it is, in all its magnificent and complex history – an unfathomable wealth that should be consciously saved, not ruthlessly spent.”
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: “Terry, to keep hoping for life in the midst of letting go is to rob me of the moment I am in.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “But what thrilled me most was the fact that millions of meteors burn up every day as they enter our atmosphere. As a result, Earth receives ten tons of dust from outer space. Not only do we take in the world with each breath, we are inhaling the universe. We are made of stardust.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “I wonder how it is we have come to this place in our society where art and nature are spoke in terms of what is optional, the pastime and concern of the elite?”

Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The mind creates those things that exist.”
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: “I am of this place. Family is a place, and my family s located here, those who are living and those who have passed. I am am settled in the scent of sage, Mount Moran’s reflection at Oxbow Bend is more than a mirror of memories; it is the joy found in river otters, a reminder that there are places in the world we can return for peace unchanged.”
Terry Tempest Williams Quote: “The sin we commit against each other as women is lack of support. We hurt. We hurt each other. We hide. We project. We become mute or duplicitous, and we fester like boiling water until one day we erupt like a geyser. Do we forget we unravel in grief?”
