“Fear isn’t so difficult to understand. After all, weren’t we all frightened as children? Nothing has changed since Little Red Riding Hood faced the big bad wolf.

The will to take one’s place in the world. To say ‘I am here.’ To say ‘I am.” – O.R. Melling

The images, clear as the slender-leaved trees in front of me, made finding him seem urgent, but I didn’t know how to begin to look.” – Maggie Stiefvater

“All stories are about wolves. All worth repeating, that is. Anything else is sentimental drivel. …Think about it. There’s escaping from the wolves, fighting the wolves, capturing the wolves, taming the wolves. Being thrown to the wolves, or throwing others to the wolves so the wolves will eat them instead of you. Running with the wolf pack. Turning into a wolf. Best of all, turning into the head wolf. No other decent stories exist.” – Margaret Atwood
“The wolf is an intelligent and cultural animal. Its behaviour is not just imprinted in its genes, but is also taught from mothers to pups according to circumstance.

Its [modern] nocturnal activities are an adaptation against danger.
“The connection between Mongols and the wolf is… interwoven with religion and folklore. In the Shamanic culture, the wolf is connected with mountain spirits. Children’s fairy tales are often filled with references to the clever and mysterious wolf. With all these connections, I assumed it would make sense if Mongols had a bit of wolf blood in them. And perhaps they do. A legend is told about a blue wolf that mated with a red deer. It was their offspring that spawned the tribe of Chingis Khan. Since Chingis is considered the father of the nation, it’s no wonder why the wolf is held in such awe.” – Michael Kohn
