Duino Elegies, Rainer Maria Rilke.......Who, if I cried out, would hear me among the angelic/ orders? and even if one of them pressed me/ suddenly to his heart: I'd be consumed/ in that overwhelming existence. For beauty/ is nothing but the beginning of terror, which we can just barely endure,/ and we stand in awe of it as it coolly disdains/ to destroy us. Every angel is terrifying/. -from "The First Elegy"
