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.More Peter Coyote [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

This book features impressive interviews, beautiful illustrations, and gives a voice to the voiceless.More Peter Coyote [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The body is an inviolable limit. And you have to really hurt it before you know that.More Peter Coyote [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
