Love and Live the Questions

Rainer Maria Rilke.jpg

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some distant day into the answer.”          

–Rainer Maria Rilke (Austro-German Poet, 1875-1926)

“Letters to a Young Poet” (Rainer Maria Rilke)
