But your solitude will be a hold and home for you even amid very unfamiliar conditions and from there you will find all your ways.
∆ Rainer Maria Rilke, from ‘Letters to a Young Poet’, tr. M. D. Herter Norton
“Yes: I am a dreamer. For a dreamer is one who can only find his way by moonlight, and his punishment is that he sees the dawn before the rest of the world.”
“I like people who are not sure of themselves, the perplexed, the modest, those who try to understand.” — Ettore Sottsass
“Befriend the shadows so that you may stare into the sun. To see the unseen, allow yourself to disappear. The greatest ambitions need no audience.”
“Be the vessel that awaits the sacred. Empty yourself so that you may be filled. Seek the light and become the spark of creation.”
The key is to keep asking yourself the same question, again and again and again: this is your life - what do you want to pay attention to?
∆ Catherine Price, from How to Break Up with Your Phone
"If these edges were dangerous, they were also powerful places. In folklore, betwixt and between are important zones of transformation. The edge of the water was where wisdom revealed itself; spirits were banished to the spaceless places 'between the froth and the water' or 'betwixt the bark and the tree.'"
— Michael Camille, Image on the Edge
