Love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away, you write, and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast. - Rainer Maria Rilke (Letters to a Young Poet Quotes)

Love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you. For those who are near you are far away, you write, and this shows that the space around you is beginning to grow vast.[Lieben Sie Ihre Einsamkeit, und tragen Sie den Schmerz, den sie Ihnen verursacht, mit schön klingender Klage. Denn die Ihnen nahe sind, sind fern, sagen Sie, und das zeigt, daß es anfängt, weit um Sie zu werden.]
