Will the transformation.
Rainer Maria Rilke, Poet (1875-1926)
“I find this short quote very inspiring because a lot of times we think that things are just happening and we don’t have much control over them. Rilke is saying that we have to will if we want to see change happen. And that we also have the power to will it. It’s implicit that we have willpower. If we can muster it, we can will the transformation. What is the transformation? That’s an interesting question; it could be almost anything. The power of the human imagination is a tremendous force that can change the world in many amazing ways. I find this a useful quote.”
