Idle Days / The last reverberations of a vast movement | Rainer Maria Rilke

Emil Otto Hoppe, The Land, Surrey, 1925


"I have often wondered whether especially those days when we are forced to remain idle are not precisely the
days spend in the most profound activity. Whether our actions themselves, even if they do not take place until
later, are nothing more than the last reverberations of a vast movement that occurs within us during idle days.

In any case, it is very important to be idle with confidence, with devotion, possibly even with joy. The days when
even our hands do not stir are so exceptionally quiet that it is hardly possible to raise them without hearing a
whole lot."


Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters on Life
