Letters to a young poet #1

“Things aren't all so tangible and effable as people would usually have us believe; most experiences are ineffable, they happen in a space that no word has ever entered, and more ineffable than all other things are works of art, those mysterious existences, whose life endures beside our own small, transitory life.”

ParisFebruary 17, 1903
Rainer Maria Rilke
