A Quote by Dag Hammarskjöld on body, contentment, darkness, desires, direction, earth, faith, husbands, sharing, tenderness, water, and wives

So rests the sky against the earth. The dark still tarn in the lap of the forest. As a husband embraces his wife's body in faithful tenderness, so the bare ground and trees are embraced by the still, high, light of the morning. I feel an ache of longing to share in this embrace, to be united and absorbed. A longing like carnal desire, but directed towards earth, water, sky, and returned by the whispers of the trees, the fragrance of the soil, the caresses of the wind, the embrace of water and light. Content? No, no, no -- but refreshed, rested -- while waiting.

Opera is like a husband with a foreign title: expensive to support, hard to understand, and therefore a supreme social challenge.
