Destiny itself is like a wonderful wide tapestry in which every thread is guided by an unspeakably tender hand, placed beside another thread and held and carried by a hundred others.” – Quote, Rainer Maria Rilke

No. 77: Letters to a Young Poet, by Rainer Maria Rilke
Rainer Maria Rilke's self-help book, 'Letters to a Young Poet', has landed at No. 77 on our list of the Top 100 self-help books of all time.
In the early 1900s, poet and writer Rainer Maria Rilke struck up a long correspondence with an aspiring poet of whom we know little about. While the letters are ostensibly about writing, they often startling insights into human nature in a way that only a poet can communicate. A quote from one of Rilke’s most famous letters best explains the book’s power: “You ask whether your verses are any good. You ask me. You have asked others before this. You send them to magazines. You compare them with other poems, and you are upset when certain editors reject your work. Now (since you have said you want my advice) I beg you to stop doing that sort of thing. You are looking outside, and that is what you should most avoid right now. No one can advise or help you — no one. There is only one thing you should do. Go into yourself. Find out the reason that commands you to write; see whether it has spread its roots into the very depths of your heart; confess to yourself whether you would have to die if you were forbidden to write.”
