Rainer Maria Rilke about life (“Letters to a Young Poet”, 1929) - if a sadness rises in front of you, larger than any you have ever seen; if an anxiety, like light and cloud-shadows, moves over your hands and over everything you do. You must realize that something is happening to you, that life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hand and will not let you fall.

You must realize that something is happening to you, that life has not forgotten you, that it holds you in its hand and will not let you fall.
