Quotes Rainer Maria Rilke


I hold this to be the highest task for a bond between two people: that each protects the solitude of the other. – Rainer Maria Rilke

Alternative Translation:

“Love consists of this: two solitudes that meet, protect and greet each other. ”
Rainer Maria Rilke

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”
Rainer Maria Rilke

“Let everything happen to you
Beauty and terror
Just keep going
No feeling is final”
Rainer Maria Rilke
