Rainer Maria Rilke: The Only Journey

Rainer Maria Rilke

“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.”

“The future enters into us, in order to transform itself in us, long before it happens.”

“The purpose of life is to be defeated by greater and greater things.”

“The only journey is the one within.”

“No great art has ever been made without the artist having known danger.”

“Let everything happen to you, beauty and terror. Just keep going, no feeling is final.”

“I hold this to be the highest task for a bond between two people: that each protects the solitude of the other.”

“Believe in a love that is being stored up for you like an inheritance, and have faith that in this love there is a strength and a blessing so large that you can travel as far as you wish without having to step outside it.”
