Text Quotes
I’ve been accused of darkness by my inner light  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) What I like about teaching is the discipline of finding words to unpack the artistic process. And I admire the drive in students who want to write, the mystery of how artistic talent unfolds.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) We’re facing enormous changes in our planetary life, with climate change and the adaptations that all natural systems are going to have to make to these climate changes, and so it’s extremely important to bear witness to what’s happening.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) There are landscapes and species that are not going to be here a hundred years from now, fifty years from now. One gift we as writers give to the world is to bear witness to these landscapes and species as we have experienced them.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) When we’re writing anything, we’re bearing witness to the time we live in and how it’s different from any other time in history.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) What keeps me level is the refusal to let the best of human aspirations die in the face of the challenges. I make a moral decision to be hopeful.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) I came to teaching late - not until my forties - which is one reason why I’m not burned out  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) The countries that are the least responsible for causing climate change are paying the heaviest price.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) The environment is becoming so much a central concern, I see environmental concerns just bleeding into poetries all over the place. My hope is that we won’t have these environmental poets tucked over here and everybody else doing cool stuff with language and consciousness elsewhere, but that all of it will become one thing.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) Sometimes it gets talked about as if life is all about the individual, and I don’t think it is. I’m really interested in what writing can contribute to a kind of cultural intelligence.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) If you have this deep feeling of empathy for the natural world, you feel it so profoundly. It’s almost a religious experience. I feel that I could never really say the depth of feeling or connection I feel to the natural world, which has made me.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) Once you realize that human actions affect every bit of earth and sky, you realize that the environment isn’t just what surrounds us - it’s all one whole.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) I started writing as a young person because I felt a lot of psychic confusion and emotional confusion, and writing was a way to sort it out. To externalize it, sort it out, put it down, look at it, and hopefully it would become clearer.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) I like bringing poetry’s focus on figurative language and compression into the essay. Of course, the musical properties of language, the cadence of the sentence, are really important to me in prose.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) I do think environmental writers need to be forward thinking, not just lamenting our losses. We do need to lament; in some ways it’s important to be the vessels for grief for all that’s being lost on our planet. But we also need to be forward thinking.  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes) I don’t know much about death and the sorriest lesson I’ve learned is that words, my most trusted guardians against chaos, offer small comfort in the face of anyone’s dying  (Alison Hawthorne Deming Quotes)
