A Quote by David Abram on ecology, environment, life, land, wolves, voices, humanity, community, and earth

Caught up in a mass of abstractions, our attention hypnotized by a host of human-made technologies that only reflect us back to ourselves, it is all too easy for us to forget our carnal inherence in a more-than-human matrix of sensations and sensibilities. Our bodies have formed themselves in delicate reciprocity with the manifold textures, sounds, and shapes of an animate earth – our eyes have evolved in subtle interaction with other eyes, as our ears are attuned by their very structure to the howling of wolves and the honking of geese. To shut ourselves off from these other voices, to continue by our lifestyles to condemn these other sensibilities to the oblivion of extinction, is to rob our own senses of their integrity, and to rob our minds of their coherence. We are human only in contact, and conviviality, with what is not human.

A Quote by Jack London on echoes, myriads, and voices

I did not begin when I was born, nor when I was conceived. I have been growing, developing, through incalculable myriads of millenniums. All my previous selves have their voices, echoes, promptings in me. Oh, incalculable times again shall I be born.

Jack London (1876 - 1916)

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on hearts, god, voices, truth, soul, work, and healing

during these times immediately ahead, the world will need many trumpets to sound the clarion call.  The world will need many voices to speak the words of truth and healing for which millions long.  The world will need many hearts joined together in the work of the soul, and prepared to do the work of God.

Neale Donald Walsch

I am a bastard, I tell people what they do not want to hear, and what all those voices in their heads have been screaming to them for months on.

A Quote by Terry Pratchett on humour, voices, and schitzofrenia

'It's happened at last,' he moaned.  'I'm going out of my mind.'
Good idea said the voice.  It's getting crowded in here
