O you must not be frightened...

O you must not be frightened ...if a sadness rises up before you larger than you have ever seen; if a restiveness, like light and cloudshadows, passes over your hands and all that do. You must think that something is happening with you, that life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hand; it will not let you fall.

--(Rainer Maria Rilke--Letters to a Young Poet, Letter 8--Excerpt)
