Clarissa Pinkola Estes

A Quote by Clarissa Pinkola Estes on strength, living, and wild nature

To be strong does not mean to sprout muscles and flex. It means meeting one's own numinosity without fleeing, actively living with the wild nature in one's own way. It means to be able to learn, to be able to stand what we know. It means to stand and live.

A Quote by Clarissa Pinkola Estes on body, earth, and power

The body is like the earth . . . as vulnerable to overbuilding, being carved into parcels, cut off, overmined, and shorn of its power as any landscape.
