Quotes of quotes of quotes of quotes, 10/27

For whatever reason, it just feels right to post some Rilke today (glorious sunshine notwithstanding). Thus, I give you, dear reader, a trio of fragmentary sentences from the Duino Elegies:


Strange to see things that seemed to belong together floating in every direction.


We don’t know the contour of feeling, we only know what molds it from without.


That’s what fate means: to be facing each other and nothing but each other and to be doing it forever.
