Two individuals who are quiet to the same degree have no need to talk about the melody that defines their hours.  This melody is what they have in common in and of itself.  Like a burning altar it exists between them, and they nourish the sacred flame respectfully with their occasional syllables.

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