"All meaningful and lasting change
starts first in your imagination and
then works its way out."
— Albert Einstein
"I love the dark hours of my being
in which my senses drop into the deep.
I have found in them, as in old letters,
my private life, that is already lived through,
and become wide and powerful now, like legends.
Then I know that there is room in me
for a second huge and timeless life."
— Rainer Maria Rilke, Selected Poems, Robert Bly translation
