Love Walked In

Girl with a Pearl Earring

There are the moments when something new has entered into us, a something unknown; our feelings grow mute in shy perplexity, everything in us withdraws, a stillness comes, and the new, which no one knows, stands in the midst of it and is silent.

Rainer Maria Rilke
