Rainer Maria Rilke

Rainer Maria Rilke

Just as language has no longer anything in common with the thing it names, so the movements of most of the people who live in cities have lost their connection with the earth; they hang, as it were, in the air, hover in all directions, and find no place where they can settle.More Rainer Maria Rilke [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Ideally a painter (and, generally, an artist) should not become conscious of his insights: without taking the detour through his reflective processes, and incomprehensibly to himself, all his progress should enter so swiftly into the work that he is unable to recognize them in the moment of transition. Alas, the artist who waits in ambush there, watching, detaining them, will find them transformed like the beautiful gold in the fairy tale which cannot remain gold because some small detail was not taken care of.More Rainer Maria Rilke [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Do not assume that she who seeks to comfort you now, lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. Her life may also have much sadness and difficulty, that remains far beyond yours. Were it otherwise, she would never have been able to find these words.More Rainer Maria Rilke [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Live your questions now, and perhaps even without knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answers.More Rainer Maria Rilke [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Let life happen to you. Believe me: life is in the right, always.More Rainer Maria Rilke [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

The only journey is the one within.More Rainer Maria Rilke [01/01/2000 12:01:00]
Painting is something that takes place among the colors, and one has to leave them alone completely, so that they can settle the matter among themselves. Their intercourse: this is the whole of painting. Whoever meddles, arranges, injects his human deliberation, his wit, his advocacy, his intellectual agility in any way, is already disturbing and clouding their activity.More Rainer Maria Rilke [01/01/2000 12:01:00]

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.More Rainer Maria Rilke [07/13/2011 07:07:53]
It is a tremendous act of violence to begin anything. I am not able to begin. I simply skip what should be the beginning.More Rainer Maria Rilke [07/13/2011 07:07:57]
Love consists in this, that two solitudes protect and touch and greet each other.More Rainer Maria Rilke [07/13/2011 07:07:37]
Love is like the measles. The older you get it, the worse the attack.More Rainer Maria Rilke [07/13/2011 07:07:42]
No great art has ever been made without the artist having known danger.More Rainer Maria Rilke [07/13/2011 07:07:53]
Perhaps everything terrible is in its deepest being something helpless that wants help from us.More Rainer Maria Rilke [07/13/2011 07:07:12]
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.More Rainer Maria Rilke [07/13/2011 07:07:24]
The future enters into us, in order to transform itself in us, long before it happens.More Rainer Maria Rilke [07/13/2011 07:07:39]
