And We Must Pass Through Solitude And Difficulty

And we must pass through solitude and difficulty,

isolation and silence

in order to reach forth to the enchanted place

where we can dance our clumsy dance and sing our sorrowful song

– but in this dance or in this song there are fulfilled the most ancient rites of our conscience

in the awareness of being human and of believing in a common destiny.

—Pablo Neruda, Nobel Prize Lecture 1971
