It’s all in preparation for amazement!! …. Rainer Maria Rilke, from “The Singer Sings Before a Child of Princes”, in The Book of Images.
Can you not sometimes feel how all pasts
grow light, when you’ve lived a while,
how they gently prepare you for amazement,
companion each feeling with images,—
— Rainer Maria Rilke, from “The Singer Sings Before a Child of Princes”, in The Book of Images
