“Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.”

--Rainer Maria Rilke


  1. Wow...Rilke. Don't see him mentioned much in blogs.

    My favorite Rilke line:

    Aus dunklem Wein und tausend Rosen rinnt die Stunde rauschend in den Traum der Nacht.

    Out of dark wine and a thousand roses runs the hour rushing into the dream of night.

  2. What an amazing line! Thank you for posting it, kkollwitz; it's always nice to see you here. May God bless you and your dear ones.
