…Life has not forgotten you…


“You must not be frightened
if a sadness
rises in front of you,
larger than any you have ever seen;
if an anxiety,
like light and cloud-shadows,
moves over your hands and over
everything you do.
You must realize that something is happening to you,
that life has not forgotten you,
that it holds you in its hand
and will not let you fall.”

Rainer Maria Rilke

Arnold Böcklin – The Sacred Grove II, 1886.
