Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “My God, if any of it could be shared! But would it “be” then, would it “be”? No, it “is” only at the price of solitude.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Do not, do not, do not books for ever hammer at people like perpetual bells? When, between two books, silent sky appears: be glad.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Wishes are memories coming from our future!”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Just the wish that you may find in yourself enough patience to endure and enough simplicity to have faith; that you may gain more and more confidence in what is difficult and in your solitude among other people. And as for the rest, let life happen to you. Believe me: life is in the right, always.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “He who does not at some time, with definite determination consent to the terribleness of life, or even exalt in it, never takes possession of the inexpressible fullness of the power of our existence.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “There are so many things about which some old man ought to tell one while one is little; for when one is grown one would know them as a matter of course.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Nowhere, beloved, can world be but within us. Our life passes in transformation. And the external dwindles away.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Confess to yourself in the deepest hour of the night whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write. Dig deep into your heart, where the answer spreads its roots in your being, and ask yourself solemnly, Must I write?”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Of all my books, I find only a few indispensible.”
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?”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “One has to be able at every moment to place one’s hand on the earth like the first human being.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Who, if I cried, would hear me among the angelic orders? And even if one of them suddenly pressed me against his heart, I should fade in the strength of his stronger existence. For beauty’s nothing but the beginning of terror we’re still just able to bear.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “If your everyday life seems to lack material, do not blame it; blame yourself, tell yourself that you are not poet enough to summon up its riches, for there is no lack for him who creates and no poor, trivial place.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “I’m learning how to see. I don’t know what the reason is, but everything enters into me more deeply and no longer stops at the point where it used to come to an end. I have an inner self that I knew nothing about. Now everything goes into it. I don’t know what happens there.”
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: “In one creative thought a thousand forgotten nights of love come to life again and fill it with majesty and exaltation. And those who come together in the nights and are entwined in rocking delight perform a solemn task and gather sweetness, depth, and strength for the song of some future poet, who will appear in order to say ecstasies that are unsayable.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “Fame – the aggregate of all the misunderstandings that collect around a new name.”
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: “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: “May you gain more and more confidence in what is difficult and in your solitude among other people.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “One had to take some action against fear when once it laid hold of one.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “God... sat down for a moment when the dog was finished in order to watch it... and to know that it was good, that nothing was lacking, that it could not have been made better.”
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: “Why should you want to exclude from your life all unsettling, all pain, all depression of spirit, when you don’t know what work it is these states are performing within you?”
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: “Verweilung, auch am Verstrautesten nicht, ist uns gegeben.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “What an unilateral life, when from the material of a renunciation, we must fashion something we love.”
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: “Think, dear Sir, of the world that you carry inside you, and call this thinking whatever you want to: a remembering of your own childhood or a yearning toward a future of your own – only be attentive to what is arising within you, and place that above everything you perceive around you. What is happening on your innermost self is worthy of your entire love; somehow you must find a way to work at it, and not lose too much time or too much courage in clarifying your attitude toward people.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “If, however, he is the most perfect one, would not what is less than perfect precede him, so that he can choose himself from great abundance?”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “And yet they are in us, those who have long since passed away, as natural disposition, as burden on our destiny, as blood that throbs, and as gesture that rises up out of the depths of time.”
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: “The comprehensible slips away, is transformed; instead of possession one learns connection.”
Rainer Maria Rilke Quote: “For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror.”
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: “So whoever loves must try to act as if he had a great work: he must be much alone and go into himself and collect himself and hold fast to himself; he must work; he must become something!”
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: “Amid these fading and decaying things, be the glass that rings out as it’s breaking.”
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: “Whoever you are: in the evening step out of your room, where you know everything;.”
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: “Dance the orange.”
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: “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: “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.”
