Perhaps, everything terrible is in its deepest being
something helpless that wants help from us.
So you must not be frightened if a sadness rises up
before you larger than any you have ever seen;
if a restiveness, like light and cloud-shadows,
passes over your hands and over all you do.
You must think that something is happening with you,
that life has not forgotten you,
that it holds you in its hand;
it will not let you fall…
— Letters To A Young Poet, by Rainer Maria Rilke.
