I Choose to Begin

By Rainer Maria Rilke

I love all beginnings, despite their anxiousness and their uncertainty, which belong to every commencement. If I have earned a pleasure or a reward, or if I wish that something had not happened; if I doubt the worth of an experience and remain in my past — then I choose to begin at this very second.

Begin what? I begin. I have already thus begun a thousand lives.

The only journey is the one within.
