-"I'm nothing but a lone wolf, misunderstood and labeled to be dangerous."

-"You can take the dog out of the wolf pack, but you can't take the wolf pack out of the dog."

-"A girl is the one who screams at the mouse, and smiles at the wolf."

-"The wolf changes his coat, but not his disposition."

-"For the strength of the Pack is the Wolf, and the strenght of the Wolf is the Pack."

-"Wolf is the Grand Teacher. Wolf is the sage, who after many winters upon the sacred path and seeking the ways of wisdom, returns to share new knowledge with the tribe. Wolf is both the radical and the traditional in the same breath. When the Wolf walks by you-you will remember."

-"We reached the old wolf in time to watch the fierce green fire dying in her eyes. . . .There was something new to me in those eyes--- something known only to her and the mountains. I was young then, and full of trigger-itch. I thought that because fewer wolves more deer that no wolves would mean hunter's paradise, but after seeing the green fire dire, I sensed that neither the wolf nor the mountain agreed with such a view."

-"If the wolf is to survive, the wolf haters must be outnumbered. They must be outshouted, out financed, and out voted. Their narrow and biased attitude must be outweighed by an attitude based on an understanding of natural processes."

-"Inescapably, the realization was being borne in upon my preconditioned mind that the centuries-old and univerally accepted human concept of wolf character was a palpable lie. On three separate occasions in less than a week I had been completely at the mercy of these "savage killers"; but far from attempting to tear me limb from limb, they had displayed a restraint verging on contempt, even when I invaded their home and appeared to be posing a direct threat to the young pups."

-"We have doomed the Wolf not for what it is, but for what we have deliberately and mistakenly perceived it to be..the mythologized epitome of a savage, ruthless killer..which is, in reality no more than a reflexed images of ourself."

-"We humans fear the beast within the wolf because we do not understand the beast within ourselves"

-"Wolves may feature in our myths, our history, and our dreams, but they have their own future, their own loves, their own dreams to fulfill."

-"Throughout the centuries we have projected on to the wolf the qualities we most despise and fear in ourselves."

 

-"The gaze of the wolf reaches into our soul."
