Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Fame – the aggregate of all the misunderstandings that collect around a new name.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Nobody can advise you and help you, nobody. There is only one way. Go into yourself.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “And more than that: you are also the doctor responsible for looking after himself. But with all illnesses there are many days when the doctor can do nothing but wait.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “To keep growing, silently and earnestly, through your while development; you couldn’t disturb it any more violently than by looking outside and waiting for outside answers to question that only your innermost feeling, in your quietest hour, can perhaps answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “The natural growth of your inner life will lead you slowly and with time to other insights... Everything is a gestation and then bringing forth.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Is it possible that despite our inventions and progress, despite our culture, religion and knowledge of the world, we have remained on the surface of life? Is it possible that even that surface, which might still have been something, has been covered with unbelievably boring material, leaving it looking like drawing-room furniture in the summer holidays.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Let me put aside every desire, so that my heart grows used to its farthest spaces. Better that it live fully aware, in the terror of its stars, than as if protected, soothed by what is near.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Amid these fading and decaying things, be the glass that rings out as it’s breaking.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Dance the orange.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Whoever you are: in the evening step out of your room, where you know everything;.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “You are so young, so much before all beginning, and I would like to beg you, dear Sir, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “So don’t be frightened, dear friend, if a sadness confronts you larger than any you have ever known, casting its shadow over all you do. You must think that something is happening within you, and remember that life has not forgotten you; it holds you in its hand and will not let you fall. Why would you want to exclude from your life any uneasiness, any pain, any depression, since you don’t know what work they are accomplishing within you?”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “I am still soft, and I can be like wax in your hands. Take me, give me a form, finish me.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “And if I have anything else to say to you it is this: do not think that the person who is trying to console you lives effortlessly among the simple, quiet words that sometimes make you feel better. His life is full of troubles and sadness and falls far short of them. But if it were any different he could never have found the words that he did.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Whether it be the singing of a lamp or the voice of a storm, whether it be the breath of an evening or the groan of the ocean – whatever surrounds you, a broad melody always wakes behind you, woven out of a thousand voices, where there is room for your own solo only here and there. To know when you need to join in: that is the secret of your solitude: just as the art of true interactions with others is to let yourself fall away from high words into a single common melody.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Who has not sat, afraid, before his heart’s curtain?”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Beauty will become paltry and insignificant when one looks for it only in what is pleasing; there it might be found occasionally but it resides and lies awake in each thing where it encloses itself, and it emerges only for the individual who believes that it is present everywhere and who will not move on until he has stubbornly coaxed it forth.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “And those who come together in the night and are entwined in rocking delight do an earnest work and gather sweetnesses, gather depth and strength for the song of some coming poet, who will arise to speak of ecstasies beyond telling.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “You know that I am not one of those individuals who neglect their body in order to turn it into an offering for their soul; my soul would not at all have appreciated such a sacrifice.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “We lead our lives so poorly because we arrive in the present always unprepared, incapable, and too distracted for everything.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “But this press of time – take it as a little thing next to what endures. All this hurrying soon will be over. Only when we tarry do we touch the holy.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Never forget to make a wish, Malte. You should never give up wishing. I believe there is no such thing as fulfillment, but there are wishes, and they go on lasting, your whole lifetime, so that you couldn’t wait long enough for them to be fulfilled even if you wanted to.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “And if there is one thing more that I must say to you, it is this: Do not believe that he who seeks to comfort you lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. His life has much difficulty and sadness and remains far behind yours. Were it otherwise he would never have been able to find those words.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Verweilung, auch am Verstrautesten nicht, ist uns gegeben.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “And still it is not enough to have memories. One must be able to forget them when they are many, and one must have the great patience to wait until they come again. For it is not yet the memories themselves. Not until they have turned to blood within us, to glance, to gesture, nameless and no longer to be distinguished from ourselves – not until then can it happen that in a most rare hour the first word of a verse arises in their midst and goes forth from them.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Eating, too, has been turned away from its true nature: want on the one hand and superfluity on the other have troubled the clarity of this need, and all the profound, simple necessities in which life renews itself have similarly been obscured.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Things are not as easy to understand and say as we might prefer to believe; most events are inexpressible, happening in a space where no word has ever set foot, and most inexpressible of all are works of art, mysterious existences, whose life continues as ours passes away.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Being an artist means, not reckoning and counting, but ripening like the tree which does not force its sap and stands confident in the storms of spring without the fear that after them may come no summer. It does come. But it comes only to the patient, who are there as though eternity lay before them, so unconcernedly still and wide. I learn it daily, learn it with pain to which I am grateful: patience is everything!”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “If you think your world isn’t poetic enough, or exciting enough to tell a story about, that’s not because it’s a dull world, that’s because you’re not poet enough to wake its soul up.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Don’t petals of soft words float upon your blood?”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “To love is to give light with inexhaustible oil.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Live for a while in these books, learn from them what you feel is worth learning, but most of all love them. This love will be returned to you thousands upon thousands of times, whatever your life may become – it will, I am sure, go through the while fabric of your becoming, as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experiences, disappointments, and joys.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Then take your fate upon yourself and bear it, its burden and its greatness, without ever asking for that reward which might come from without. For the creator must be a world for himself, and find everything within himself, and in Nature to which he has attached himself.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “For there is no place that does not see you. You must change your life.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Nobody can advise and help you, nobody. There is only one single means. Go inside yourself. Discover the motive that bids you write; examine whether it sends its roots down to the deepest places of your heart, confess to yourself whether you would have to die if writing were denied you. This before all: ask yourself in the quietest hour.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “My old furniture is rotting in a barn where I was permitted to store it, and as for myself, dear God, I don’t have a roof over my head and it is raining into my eyes.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Even on days when fate wishes to bestow boundless gifts on them, most people make mistakes in accepting: they don’t accept straightforwardly and consequently lose something while doing so, they take with a secondary purpose in mind, or they accept what is given to them as if they were being compensated for something else.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “A world will come over you, the happiness, the abundance, the incomprehensible immensity of a world. Live a while in these books, learn from them what seems to you worth learning, but above all love them. This love will be repaid you a thousand and a thousand times, and however your life may turn, – it will, I am certain of it, run through the fabric of your growth as one of the most important threads among all the threads of your experience, disappointments and joys.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “The essence of love lies not in communion, but in the fact that each partner forces the other to become something, something infinitely great, the extreme limit of his strength.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “There are a large number of people in the room, but one is unaware of them. They are in the books. At times they move among the pages, like sleepers turning over between two dreams. Ah, how good it is to be among people who are reading.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “We are solitary. We may delude ourselves and act as though this were not so. That is all.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “What goes on in your innermost being is worth all your love, this is what you must work on however you can and not waste too much time and too much energy on clarifying your attitude to other people.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Do you remember how this life of yours longed in childhood to belong to the grown-ups? I can see that it now longs to move on from them and is drawn to those who are greater yet. That is why it does not cease to be difficult, but also why it will not cease to grow.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Above all marriage is a new task and a new seriousness – a new challenge and a question regarding the strength and kindness of each participant and a new great danger for both.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “There is but one solitude, and that is great and not easy to bear, and to almost everybody come hours when they would gladly exchange it for any sort of intercourse, however banal and cheap, for the semblance of some slight accord with the first comer, with the unworthiest... But perhaps those are the very hours when solitude grows; for its growing is painful as the growing of boys and sad as the beginning of springtimes.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Je mehr Liebe man gibt, desto mehr besitzt man davon.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “This, above all, ask yourself in the stillest hour of the night: must I write? Delve deep into yourself. And if this should be affirmative, if you may meet this question witha strong and simple ‘I must’ then build your lfie according to this necessity; your life even into its most indifferent and slightest hour must be a sign of this urge and a testimony to it.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Somehow I had a premonition of what I so often felt at later times: that you did not have the right to open a single book unless you engaged to read them all. With every line you read, you were breaking off a portion of the world. Before books, the world was intact, and afterwards it might be restored to wholeness once again. But how was I, who could not read, to take up the challenge laid down by all of them?”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “If two people managed not to get stuck in hatred during their honest struggles with each other, that is, in the edges of their passion that became ragged and sharp when it cooled and set, if they could stay fluid, active, flexible, and changeable in all of their interactions and relations, and, in a word, if a mutually human and friendly consideration remained available to them, then their decision to separate cannot easily conjure disaster and terror.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “I have never been aware before how many faces there are. There are quantities of human beings, but there are many more faces, for each person has several.”
