I am currently re-reading Women Who Run With The Wolves: Contacting The Power Of The Wild Woman by Clarissa Pinkola Estés and felt these quotes needed to be shared.
“We are all filled with a longing for the wild. There are few culturally sanctioned antidotes for this yearning. We were taught to feel shame for such a desire. We grew our hair long and used it to hide our feelings. But the Shadow of Wild Woman still lurks behind us during our days and in our nights. No matter where we are, the shadow that trots behind us is definitely four-footed.” – Clarissa Pinkola Estés
“A healthy woman is much like a wolf: robust, chock-full, strong life force, life-giving, territorially aware, inventive, loyal, roving.” ― Clarissa Pinkola Estés
