Rainer Maria Rilke about experience (“Letters to a Young Poet”, 1929) - For they are the moments when something new has entered us, something unknown; our feelings grow mute in shy embarrassment, everything in us withdraws, a silence arises, and the new experience, which no one knows, stands in the midst of it all and says nothing.
