“Our human wildness
is our spontaneity,
our untamed vitality,
our innocent presence,
our resistance to oppression,
and our rule-transcending vivacity
and self-reliance that social convention
can never contain.
We are designed to grow deeper
into that wildness as we mature,
not to recede from it.”

-Bill Plotkin,
From his book, Nature and The Human Soul: Cultivating Wholeness and Community in a Fragmented World
