Living the Questions – quote of the day (thanks Glenda!)

….have patience with everything unresolved in your heart

and to try to love the questions themselves

as if they were locked rooms or books

written in a very foreign language.

Don’t search for the answers,

which could not be given to you now,

because you would not be able to live them.

And the point is, to live everything.

Live the questions now.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke ~

(Letters to a Young Poet, translated by Stephen Mitchell)
