"Were it possible for us to see further than our knowledge reaches, and yet
a little way beyond the outworks of our divination, perhaps we would then
endure our sorrows with greater confidence than our joys.  For they are the
moments when something new has entered us, something unknown; our feelings
grow mute in shy perplexity, everthing in us withdraws, a stillness comes,
and the new, which no one knows, stands in the midst of it and is silent."

	>>>Rainer Maria Rilke
