E se gli uomini non vogliano intenderlo egli non deve dire: «sono ciechi – io ho dato già tutto» – niente ha dato finché non ha dato la vicinanza delle cose lontane così che anche i ciechi le vedano.

Egli deve sentir in sé l’insufficienza e rispettar in loro quello ch’essi stessi in sé non rispettano; perché dal suo amore attratti essi prendano la persona ch’egli ama in loro: allora i ciechi vedranno.

Carlo Michelstaedter (La Persuasione e la Rettorica)

And if men do not want to understand him, he must not say,“They’re blind, I’ve given everything already”— he has given nothing until he has given the proximity of distant things such that even the blind should see them.
He must feel the insufficiency in himself and respect in them that which they do not respect in themselves; so that, attracted by his love, they should take on the persona he loves in them: then will the blind see.
