Thought for the Day

We need, in love, to practice only this:
letting each other go. For holding on
comes easily; we do not need to learn it.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Quoted from Rilke's "Requiem for a Friend" in The Selected Poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke (Vintage, 1989), English and German Edition.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926), Poet and Novelist

Yes, yes, yes. So simple, so true, so often difficult.
