on Rilke

We must accept our reality as vastly as we possibly can; everything, even the unprecedented, must be possible within it. This is in the end the only kind of courage that is required of us: the courage to face the strangest, most unusual, most inexplicable experiences that can meet us.

- R.M. Rilke, from Letters to a Young Poet, 1929

(drawn from a photo of Rilke and friends at castle Muzot, in 1923 - see my Flickr page for more)
