“When the tread is thinnest…when we sense the tragedy of endings…when life and grace is threatened by deafness and ugliness…when tenderness is bullied…when fences of enclosure overshadow the last scrap of commons…then, which is now, comes a ferocity on the side of life, to protect, to cherish and to envoice what cannot speak in human language.”

Quoted on Terri Windling’s blog Myth and Moor; Jay Griffiths, as interviewed by Sharon Blackie.
