― Rainer Maria Rilke, The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge
[text ID: To be loved means to be consumed. To love means to radiate with inexhaustible light. To be loved is to pass away, to love is to endure.]

Cuanto más callados, cuanto más pacientes y sinceros sepamos ser en nuestras tristezas, tanto más profunda y resueltamente se adentra lo nuevo en nosotros. Tanto mejor lo hacemos nuestro, y con tanto mayor intensidad se convierte en nuestro propio destino.
– Rainer Maria Rilke.

Fosti la più materna delle donne. Fosti un amico, come lo sono gli uomini. Una donna, sotto il mio sguardo. E ancora più spesso una bambina. Fosti la più grande tenerezza che ho potuto incontrare. L’elemento più duro contro il quale ho lottato. Fosti il sublime che mi ha benedetto. E diventasti l’abisso che mi ha inghiottito.
Rainer Maria Rilke

You will freeze in place if you remain this way. You must not, dear. You have to move.

I Am Too Alone in the World, and Not Alone Enough
by Rainer Maria Rilke
I am too alone in the world, and not alone enough to make every minute holy. I am too tiny in this world, and not tiny enough just to lie before you like a thing, shrewd and secretive. I want my own will, and I want simply to be with my will, as it goes toward action, and in the silent, sometimes hardly moving times when something is coming near, I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone. I want to be a mirror for your whole body, and I never want to be blind, or to be too old to hold up your heavy and swaying picture. I want to unfold. I don’t want to stay folded anywhere, because where I am folded, there I am a lie. And I want my grasp of things true before you. I want to describe myself like a painting that I looked at closely for a long time, like a saying that I finally understood, like the pitcher I use every day, like the face of my mother, like a ship that took me safely through the wildest storm of all.
