"See how in their veins all becomes spirit:
into each other they mature and grow.
Like axles, their forms tremblingly orbit,
round which it whirls, bewitching and aglow.
Thirsters, and they receive drink,
watchers, and see: they receive sight.
Let them into one another sink
so as to endure each other outright."
- Rainer Maria Rilke, “The Lovers”, trans. John J. L. Mood (via litverve)
The Secret Garden, 1993, dir. Agnieszka Holland
’If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.’

"I don’t want to stand before you
like a thing, shrewd, secretive.
I want my own will, and I want
simply to be with my will,
as it goes toward action.
And in the silent, sometimes hardly moving times,
when something is coming near,
I want to be with those who know
secret things or else alone.
I want to unfold.
I don’t want to be folded anywhere,
because where I am folded,
there I am a lie."
- Rainer Maria Rilke (via c-ovet)
