Rilke in love...



You see, gracious lady, through the unsparing severity, through the uncompromising strength of your words, I felt that my own work was receiving a blessing, a sanction. I was like someone for whom great dreams, with all their good and evil, were coming true; for your essay was to my poems as reality is to a dream, as fulfillment is to a desire.
[…]
I always feel: when one person is indebted to another for something very special, that indebtedness should remain a secret between just the two of them.
