And the loneliest people above all contribute most to commonality. I have said before that in this vast melody of life, some learn more, some less; therefore, in this big orchestra, everyone has his own role. The one who can perceive the entire melody is at the same time the loneliest and the closest to commonality. He would perceive all that it is not allowed to others, as he would understand in his completeness what the others can only eavesdrop in the darkness of a space full of emptiness. - Rainer Maria Rilke, from Letters On Life, ‘On Solitude’)
