Mary Oliver Quote: “I learned from Whitman that the poem is a temple – or a green field – a place to enter, and in which to feel.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “I look upon time as no more than an idea, and I consider eternity as another possibility.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “I want to sit down on the sand and look around and get dreamy; I want to see what spirits are peeking out of the faces of the roses.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “The working, concentrating artist is an adult who refuses interruption from himself, who remains absorbed and energized in and by the work – who is thus responsible to the work.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “One learns thinking about writing, and by talking about writing – but primarily through writing.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “I simply was not able to risk wrecking her world, and I could see no possible way I could move the whole kingdom. So I left her with the only thing I could – the certainty of a little more time.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “I cherish two sentences and keep them close to my desk. The first is by Flaubert. I came upon it among Van Gough’s letters. It says, simply, ‘Talent is long patience, and originality an effort of will and of intense observation.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “It is the news that no one is singular, that no argument will change the course, that one’s time is more gone than not, and what is left waits to be spent gracefully and attentively, if not quite so actively.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “To believe in the soul – to believe in it exactly as much and as hardily as one believes in a mountain, say, or a fingernail, which is ever in view – imagine the consequences! How far-reaching, and thoroughly wonderful! For everything, by such a belief, would be charged, and changed. You wake in the morning, the soul exists, your mouth sings it, your mind accepts it. And the perceived, tactile world is, upon the instant, only half the world!”
Mary Oliver Quote: “Especially when writers are just starting out, the emphasis should be not only upon what they write, but equally upon the process of writing. A successful class is a class where no one feels that ‘writer’s block’ is a high-priority subject.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “Are the roses not also – even as the owl is – excessive? Each flower is small and lovely, but in their sheer and silent abundance the roses become an immutable force, as though the work of the wild roses was to make sure that all of us, who come wandering over the sand, may be, for a while, struck to the heart and saturated with a simple joy.”
