A Quote by Mary Oliver on forgiveness, love, purpose, direction, goodness, repentence, body, and self acceptance

You do not have to be good.
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.

Mary Oliver
