“Silence is another form of sound.”
“Oaks sometimes endure the worst conditions. Other times, with a touchiness hard to believe, they topple over in the dead of a soundless night, and the heavy thud can be heard for miles.”
“Knowledge supersedes impression. Naming relegates nature to the world of books, experts, and authorities. It dilutes the immediacy of the experience.”
“I had an unaccountable feeling of crisis that comes with the uneasy dusk as it also does with the dawn. Since it is neither day nor night it is a strange time. And it never lasts long enough for one to become used to it.”
“The coyote must be my totem animal. ... Strange, devil-like beings — the sneak thieves of the animal world — they were clever; they were beyond anything we could imagine. They could walk thin as a stick, or loom up big and substantial; but they were never out of control of a situation.”
Janice Hollister Wheelwright, U.S. Jungian analyst, writer
(1905 - 2004)
