The most important question in order to see into and behind,
to weigh the value of all that lives:
Wooooooooor aieeeee th’ soooooooool?
Where is the soul? … If you don’t go out in the woods, nothing will ever happen and your life will never begin. “Don’t go out in the woods, don’t go out,” they said. “Why not? Why should I not go out in the woods tonight?” she asked. “A big wolf lives there who eats humans such as you. Don’t go out in the woods, don’t go out. We mean it.” Naturally she went out. She went out in the woods anyway, and of course she met the wolf, just as they had warned her. “See, we told you,” they crowed. “This is my life, not a fairy tale, you dolts,” she said. “I have to go to the woods, and I have to meet the wolf, or else my life will never begin.” – Clarissa Pinkola Estes (at Notting Hill)
