Rainer Maria Rilke

Rainer Maria Rilke

Austrian poet
The artist's experience lies so unbelievably close to the sexual, to its pain and its pleasure, that the two phenomena are really just different forms of one and the same longing and bliss.More Rainer Maria Rilke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
a kind of memory that tells us that what we're now striving for was once nearer and truer and attached to us with infinite tenderness. Here all is distance, there it was breath. After the first home the second one seems draughty and strangely sexed.More Rainer Maria Rilke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Where something becomes extremely difficult and unbearable, there we also stand already quite near its transformation.More Rainer Maria Rilke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is clear that we must embrace struggle. Every living thing conforms to it. Everything in nature grows and struggles in its own way, establishing its own identity, insisting on it at all cost, against all resistance.More Rainer Maria Rilke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
It is true that these mysteries are dreadful, and people have always drawn away from them. But where can we find anything sweet and glorious that would never wear this mask, the mask of the dreadful? Whoever does not, sometimes or other, give his full consent, his full and joyous consent to the dreadfulness of life, can never take possession of the unutterable abundance and power of our existence; can only walk on its edge, and one day, when the judgment is given, will have been neither alive nor dead.More Rainer Maria Rilke quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
