Thought for a new year

We must assume our existence as broadly as we can; everything, even the unheard of, must be possible in it. That is at the bottom the only courage that is demanded of us; to have courage for the most strange, the most singular, and the most inexplicable that we may encounter.

Rainer Maria Rilke

  • LOL. No sex change was intended, Anon, I apologize to you and to Rainer, whose masculinity I swear I've personally never questioned...That was a very careless bad cut and paste, and a pathetic job of rereading what I was posting.
    You caught me red handed. Sorry about that, appropriately embarrassed by the typo. Thanks for at least letting me know...since no one els did (and trust me, my readers, too know he was a man...)
