A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on children, love, miracles, strength, and time

This is the miracle that happens every time to those who really love; the more they give, the more they possess of that precious nourishing love from which flowers and children have their strength and which could help all human beings if they would take it without doubting.

A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on conflict, fate, future, life, and world

At the bottom no one in life can help anyone else in life; this one experiences over and over in every conflict and every perplexity: that one is alone. That isn't as bad as it may first appear; and again it is the best thing in life that each should have everything in himself; his fate, his future, his whole expanse and world.

A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on assumptions, difficulty, good, life, quiet, simplicity, and words

Do not assume that he who seeks to comfort you now, lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. His life may also have much sadness and difficulty, that remains far beyond yours. Were it otherwise, he would never have been able to find these words.

A Quote by Rainer Maria Rilke on day, heart, love, patience, and questions

Be patient with all that is unresolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves. Do not seek the answers that cannot be given For you would not be able to live them And the point is to live everything Live the questions now And perhaps without knowing it You will live along some day into the answers.
