How is it possible to live when … the elements of this life are utterly incomprehensible to us? If we are continually inadequate in love, uncertain in decision and impotent in the face of death, how is it possible to exist?

Rilke in a letter to Lotte Hepner, found in Letters on God and Letters to a Young Woman and quoted in Susan Sontag’s Reborn: Journals and Notebooks, 1947-1963

Song: “Living This Life (Makes It Hard)” by The Dutchess & The Duke
