Whole against the sky


Once the realization is accepted that even between 
the closest human beings infinite distances continue, 
a wonderful living side by side can grow, 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
