Days [ ) The Tender Abundance of a Moment | Rainer Maria Rilke, 1875 – 1926


 Rene Magritte, La memoire IV, 1954

“Among all the graces of our ‘life’ there is also the fact that we have been
endowed with all of the means to survive the tender abundance of a moment,
not only in the realm of memories but also in the continuous interpretations
of the pleasures that are bestowed on us.”

Rainer Maria Rilke, 1875-1926
