R.M.R on Maturity (and high school girl's basketball?)


What we choose to fight is so tiny!
What fights with us is so great.
If only we would let ourselves be dominated
as things do by some immense storm,
we would become strong too, and not need names.

When we win it's with small things
and the triumph itself makes us small.
What is extraordinary and eternal
does not want to be bent by us

This is how one grows: by being defeated, decisively,
by constantly greater beings.

- Rainer Maria Rilke

And just so you know what I am referring to, last week a Dallas high school basketball team won a game by the score of 100-0.

I still don't understand why people got so upset about this. It isn't like the coach encouraged his girls to run up the score. Were they supposed to intentionally give the ball to the other team?
