Rainer Maria Rilke quotes on beauty

  Who if I cried out, would hear me among the angel's hierarchies?<br/>and even if one of them pressed me suddenly against his heart: <br/>I would be consumed in that overwhelming existence<br/>For beauty is nothing but the beginning of terror which we are still just able to endure.<br/>and we are so awed because it serenely disdains to annihilate us.  
Rainer Maria Rilke
