But in the painting, the building, the symphony -- in a word, in art itself, they [the artist and nature] seem to join together as if in a higher, prophetic truth, to rely on one another, and it is as if they completed each other to become that perfect unity that characterizes the essence of the work of art.

--Rainer Maria Rilke
(from Letters on Life,
translated by Ulrich Baer)
