Words of Note

But, once the realization is accepted, that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue to exist, a wonderful living side by side can grow up, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole and against a wide sky!

Rainer Maria Rilke,

20th-century German poet

From 'Letters of Rainer Maria Rilke 1892-1910' (1945).
