“In wildness is the preservation of the world.” – Henry David Thoreau
This quote is what inspired us to create the name “We Are Wildness”. Wildness is literally the quality of being wild or untamed. Henry David Thoreau is credited with being one the first to use the word “Wildness” and shared it throughout his writing. His words remind us that in order to preserve and protect nature we must develop a deep connection to all that is wild in the world and in ourselves.
