"I’ve realized that everyone in the world has two sides to them, every single person: the side that you’re gonna let me see, and the side that you choose to hide behind. If only people would just be themselves and take off the mask, and just show you, “Here I am,” life would be so much easier.”

We think that the point is to pass the test or overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.

We reached the wolf in time to watch the fierce green fire dying in her eyes. There was something new to me in those eyes, something known only to her and the mountains. I was young then, and full of trigger-itch. I thought that because “fewer wolves, more deer” that no wolves would mean hunter’s paradise, but after seeing the green fire die, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view. — Aldo Leopold
