Gary Snyder
b. 5-8-1930; San Francisco, CA

Gary Snyder is called the “poet laureate of Deep Ecology” and Lawrence Ferlinghetti referred to him as ‘the Thoreau of the Beat Generation’. Snyder's work has been recognized with a Pulitizer Prize (Turtle Island, 1974), Bollingen and Ruth Lilly Prize.

Gary Snyder quotes ~
• “Nature is not a place to visit. It is home.”
• “Nature is orderly. That which appears to be chaotic in nature is only a more complex kind of order.”
• “As a poet I hold the most archaic values on earth . . . the fertility of the soil, the magic of animals, the power-vision in solitude, the terrifying initiation and rebirth, the love and ecstasy of the dance, the common work of the tribe. I try to hold both history and the wilderness in mind, that my poems may approach the true measure of things and stand against the unbalance and ignorance of our times.”
• “In Western Civilization, our elders are books.”
• “Today we are aware as never before of the plurality of human life-styles and possibilities, while at the same time being tied, like in an old silent movie, to a runaway locomotive rushing headlong toward a very singular catastrophe.”
• “Three-fourths of philosophy and literature is the talk of people trying to convince themselves that they really like the cage they were tricked into entering.”
