“The grassland is a big life, but it's thinner than people's eyelids. If you rupture its grassy surface, you blind it, and dust storms are more lethal than the white-hair blizzards. If the grassland dies, so will the cows and sheep and horses, as well as the wolves and the people, all the little lives.”
Jiang Rong, Wolf Totem

“Protecting the grassland is hard on us. If we don't kill wolves, they'll be fewer of us. But if we kill too many of them, there'll be even fewer.”
Jiang Rong, Wolf Totem

“Heaven and man do not easily come together, but a wolf and the grassland merge like water and milk.”
Jiang Rong, Wolf Totem
