I Don’t Want To Write Letters – Rilke (Quote)

Portrait of Rainer Maria Rilke by Leonid Pasternak

[Portrait of Rainer Maria Rilke by Leonid Pasternak]

And I don’t want to write anymore letters. What’s the use of telling someone I’m changing? If I’m no longer who I was; and if I’m something else, it’s obvious that I have no acquaintances. And I can’t possibly write to strangers.

Rainer Maria Rilke: The Notebooks of Malte Laurids Brigge. Translated by Stephen Mitchell
