Therefore, dear Sir, love your solitude and try to sing out with the pain it causes you.  be happy about your growth, in which of course you can't take anyone with you, and be gentle with those who stay behind; be confident and calm in front of them and don't torment them with your doubts and don't frighten them with your faith or joy, which they wouldn't be able to comprehend ― Rainer Maria Rilke
