Thought for the Day

Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest
human beings infinite distances continue to exist,
a wonderful living side by side can grow up, if they succeed
in loving the distance between them which makes it possible
for each to see the other whole against the sky.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters: 1910-1926
