A real wedding gift: oneself
There is an enchanting story told by the Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke, who lived in the late 19th and early 20th century. While residing in Paris in the first decade of the last century, he often passed by a woman begging on a city street, into whose hat tourists and local citizens tossed coins. The astute poet could not fail to notice that the beggar was strangely unmoved by the charity shown her, as if she had no feelings at all.
