Text Quotes
My house and my garden are built as part of nature, not over it  (Peter Coyote Quotes) Kennedy invited us into the White House-the first time in the history of the White House picketers had been invited inside. This made front page headlines  (Peter Coyote Quotes) We put on shows at Golden Gate Park with the Dead and Jefferson Airplane, and the groups were part of the community they emerged out of, not some superstars. We had multiple stages, diversions, communal entertainment. There is something slightly fascistic about sitting in a huge auditorium focusing all the energy on one group far away on stage.  (Peter Coyote Quotes) Any political agenda and organization which doesn’t begin with personal responsibility is just half the argument. It’s just not going to succeed.  (Peter Coyote Quotes) When I was young and growing up in New York, my parents took me to children’s theater quite often - elaborate presentations of ‘Goldilocks’ and ‘Rapunzel’ for Upper East Side kids. As I grew older, they took me to adult theater, mostly musicals.  (Peter Coyote Quotes) In 1972, Texaco Oil Company, in partnership with PetroEcuador, the state-run oil company of Ecuador, began to drill for oil in the jungles of the Ecuadorian Amazon.  (Peter Coyote Quotes) I think you have a social responsibility as the villain, which is pretty different from the hero’s responsibility. If you have any kind of a social or political conscience at all, the first thing you want to do is make malevolence recognizable to people, almost as a kind of teaching aid.  (Peter Coyote Quotes) We spend all this energy keeping our lives normal and safe and predictable, and the result is that our approved cultural safety valve is the movies. So in films, anyway, the hero is obliged to represent the continuance of social values and institutions, and his permission to act is much more seriously limited than the villain’s.  (Peter Coyote Quotes) Where I didn’t have the maturity and the compassion to consider other people’s needs, I did a lot of damage.  (Peter Coyote Quotes) One of the most treasured books that I own is Donald Allen’s ‘The New American Poetry, 1945-1960.’ It was a totem of great importance and potency to my group of writer friends in college from 1960 to 1964.  (Peter Coyote Quotes) When you break the rules and you win, you’re a hero; when you lose, you’re scurrilous  (Peter Coyote Quotes) You don’t see artists sitting around a lot, talking about ideology. They find out what they believe, and what they’re doing, by doing it.  (Peter Coyote Quotes) The first time I read something, I have this special feeling of being fully engaged with it. It’s fresh to the audience because it’s fresh to me. It’s a little mystical, but I really believe that.  (Peter Coyote Quotes) Young people, for whom I should have been a role model and an uncle, duplicated my worst habits and died as a result.  (Peter Coyote Quotes) It came home to me indelibly that I was never going to change anything in America by walking around carrying a sign. It was a great revelation. It saved me a lot of anxiety and a lot of wasted energy  (Peter Coyote Quotes) I got out of college and I went to get my master’s in creative writing at San Francisco State. I was working as an actor at the Actor’s Workshop, being abused as a intern  (Peter Coyote Quotes) Business is a subset of the environment, not the other way around. You can’t have a healthy economy, you can’t have a healthy anything in a degraded environment  (Peter Coyote Quotes) The self is just not a worthy enough vehicle to worship  (Peter Coyote Quotes) Money is a way of creating scarcity  (Peter Coyote Quotes) Any political agenda and organization which doesn’t begin with personal responsibility is just half the argument. It’s just not going to succeed  (Peter Coyote Quotes) Once you accept anything as tacked down, then you begin to build a structure, to accept limits. Then you have to make a choice as to whether or not you’re going to accept that structure. If you do, you give up the notion of total freedom  (Peter Coyote Quotes) The idea of absolute freedom is fiction. It’s based on the idea of an independent self. But in fact, there’s no such thing. There’s no self without other people. There’s no self without sunlight. There’s no self without dew. And water. And bees to pollinate the food that we eat... So the idea of behaving in a way that doesn’t acknowledge those reciprocal relationships is not really freedom, it’s indulgence  (Peter Coyote Quotes) You don’t see artists sitting around a lot, talking about ideology. They find out what they believe, and what they’re doing, by doing it  (Peter Coyote Quotes) The body is an inviolable limit. And you have to really hurt it before you know that  (Peter Coyote Quotes) I would say 90 percent of my mail and phone calls are from people who want some kind of help or succor or commitment from me to do something  (Peter Coyote Quotes) I think it’s good that people value their bodies and take care of them. I think if you cross the line and begin using your body as an asset or as an extension of your vanity, you’ve gone too far  (Peter Coyote Quotes) Everyone knows that our current system is kind of like legalized prostitution. The corporate sector completely controls the civic sector  (Peter Coyote Quotes)
