“You may bear life with dignity,
Only the petty make it small;
Beggars can tell you brother
and you can still be a king.

Whether the divine silence of thy brow
Nor a red-gold hoop interrupt'd, -
children will bow down before you,
blissful admirers wonder after you.

Days weave from shining sun
your purple and ermine,
and, in the hands of melancholy and delight,
the nights lie before you on your knees...”
Rainer Maria Rilke
