It seems to him there are a thousand bars; and behind the bars, no world.As he paces in cramped circles, over and over,The movement of his powerful soft strides is like a ritual dance around a center in which a mighty will stands paralysed. Only at times, the curtain of the pupils lifts, quietly. An image enters in, rushes down through the tensed, arrested muscles, plunges into the heart and is gone.-Rainer Maria Rilke
