Mary Oliver’s Magnificent Short Guide to a Life of Wisdom

You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert, repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves. Her words contain a certain simplicity, minimalism, and clarity of vision that we rarely find in our convoluted, hyperspeed world. Her work hearkens back to the poetic prose of Thoreau , the poetry of Whitman , and the writings of British Romantics such as Wordsworth and Shelley. I consider this poem to be a concise and profound roadmap to a life of wisdom. Take it in slowly and breathe a sigh of relief. Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.

quotes from Mary Oliver: 'Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life? tags: beauty, nature, prettiness, snow, winter, winter-night.
