Interview with Mary Oliver




Maria Shriver: One line of yours I often quote is, “What is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?” What do you think you have done with your one wild and precious life? 

Mary Oliver: I used up a lot of pencils.

Maria Shriver: [Laughs.]

Mary Oliver: What I have done is learn to love and learn to be loved. That didn’t come easy. And I learned to consider my life an amazing gift. Those are the things.
