Rainer Maria Rilke quotes

One had to take some action against fear when once it laid hold of one.

A person isn't who they are during the last conversation you had with them - they're who they've been throughout your whole relationship.

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.

Perhaps all the dragons of our lives are princesses who are only waiting to see us once beautiful and brave.

The only journey is the one within.

Love consists in this, that two solitudes protect and touch and greet each other.

For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation.

Live your questions now, and perhaps even without knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answers.

If your daily life seems poor, do not blame it; blame yourself that you are not poet enough to call forth its riches; for the Creator, there is no poverty.

I hold this to be the highest task for a bond between two people: that each protects the solitude of the other.

Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.

This is the miracle that happens every time to those who really love: the more they give, the more they possess.

Let life happen to you. Believe me: life is in the right, always.

All emotions are pure which gather you and lift you up; that emotion is impure which seizes only one side of your being and so distorts you.

Love is like the measles. The older you get it, the worse the attack.

Surely all art is the result of one's having been in danger, of having gone through an experience all the way to the end, where no one can go any further.

Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.

No great art has ever been made without the artist having known danger.

I want to be with those who know secret things or else alone.

Believe that with your feelings and your work you are taking part in the greatest; the more strongly you cultivate this belief, the more will reality and the world go forth from it.
