    "... with every fibre of my being" is common enough in BrE.

    Thank you for your clarification. So you mean I can say something like " You have always been working for this company with every fibre of your being."

    No. It's a bit too passionate to be used about a working environment. It's normally reserved for hopes, desires, wishes, beliefs etc.

    I believe with every fibre of my being that we should strive for equality for all.
    I hope, with every fibre of my being, that one day no more animals will be killed for food.

    Got it. Many thanks. I hope, with every fibre of my being, that one day there will be no more war in this world. And I will always choose love instead of hate. May God bless us all always.
