To console one must have suffered

“Do not believe that he who seeks to comfort you lives untouched among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. His life has much difficulty and sadness. … Were it otherwise he would never have been able to find those words.”

– Rainer Marie Rilke, “Letters to a Young Poet”
