Dag Hammarskjöld Quotes
You are merely the lens in the beam. You can only receive, give, and possess the light as the lens does. If you seek yourself, you rob the lens of its transparency. You will know life and be acknowledged by it according to your degree of transparency – your capacity, that is, to vanish as an end and remain purely as a means.
Like wind– In it, with it, of it. Of it just like a sail, so light and strong that, even when it is bent flat, it gathers all the power of the wind without hampering its course. Like light– In light, lit through by light, transformed into light. Like the lens which disappears in the light it focuses. Like wind. Like light. Just this–on these expanses, on these heights.
