Good-bye, Mary Oliver

Some of my favorite quotes come from Mary Oliver, who died earlier this month. And, my favorite quotes must be the favorites of many others because a quick search online found three of my favorites at the top of a list of the poet’s quotes.

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

“Instructions for living a life. Pay attention. Be astonished.”

“When it’s over, I want to say: all my life I was a bride married to amazement.”
