The more quiet, patient and open we are in our sadness, the deeper and more deliberately the new will enter into us, the better we shall make it ours, the more it will become our fate, and when one day it “happens” (that is, when it goes forth from us and toward others) we shall feel in our innermost being a kinship and a closeness to it.
~ Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
Sally Sparrow: I like old things. They make me feel sad.
Cathy Nightingale: What’s good about sad?
Sally Sparrow: It’s happy for deep people.
~ Doctor Who, “Blink”
