"For one human being to love another is
perhaps the most difficult task of all, the epitome, the ultimate test.
It is that striving for which all other striving
is merely preparation."

Rainer Maria Wilke

"Scale the depths of things"

"Live a while within these books."

"I know of no ther advice than this:
Go within & scale the depths of your being
from which your very life springs forth"

" a love that will be safely kept for you as a legacy & a trust, & trust that in it there is a power & a blessing. You do not have to leave its presence in order to make very great strides ahead."

"cling to the things that are now rejuvenating me. If you will stay close to nature, to its simplicity, to the small hardly noticeable things, those things can become unexpectedly great & immeasurable. If you will love what seems insignificant & will in an unassuming manner, as a servant, seek to win the confidence of what seems poor, the everything will become easier, more harmonious, & somehow more concilitory, not for your intellect-that will most likely remain behind, astonished-but for your innermost consciousness, your awakeness, & your inner knowing"

passages from a small book with great beauty & worth,
'Letters to a young poet' by rainer maria wilke
i so hope you will read it, its a treasure!!!
