Mary Oliver Quote: “I did not think of language as the means to self-description. I thought of it as the door – a thousand opening doors! – past myself. I thought of it as the means to notice, to contemplate, to praise, and, thus, to come into power.”
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: “One learns thinking about writing, and by talking about writing – but primarily through writing.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “I look upon time as no more than an idea, and I consider eternity as another possibility.”

Mary Oliver Quote: “Try to find the right place for yourself. If you can’t find it, at least dream of it.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “If it is... not just one’s own accomplishment that carries one from this green and mortal world – that lifts the latch and gives a glimpse into a greater paradise – then perhaps one has the sensibility: a gratitude apart from authorship, a fervor and desire beyond the margins of the self.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “Writing is neither vibrant life nor docile artifact but a text that would put all its money on the hope of suggestion.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “A poem should always have birds in it.”
Mary Oliver Quote: “What lay on the road was no mere handful of snake. It was the copperhead at last, golden under the street lamp. I hope to see everything in this world before I die.”
