We Are Each Other’s Destiny (Mary Oliver Quote with Photos)

We are each other's destiny, Mary Oliver quote



“I would say that there exist a thousand unbreakable links between each of us and everything else, and that our dignity and our chances are one. The farthest star and the mud at our feet are a family; and there is no decency or sense in honoring one thing, or a few things, and then closing the list. The pine tree, the leopard, the Platte River, and ourselves – we are at risk together, or we are on our way to a sustainable world together. We are each other’s destiny.”

Mary Oliver




I work to amplify good wherever I find it. I love color, texture, beauty, great ideas, nature, metaphor, deliciousness, genuine spirituality, and exploring new territory. I encourage authenticity, nurture creativity, champion sustainability, promote peace, and hope to foster a new renaissance where we all are free to be our most fulfilled, multifaceted, and terrific selves.

    Do we believe this? Do we understand it?
    If we do, we would love … everyone and everything in …their true depict.
    (Even our “enemies.”)

    This would sustain us, and Planet Earth.
