Try to Love the Questions

My friend sent this to me the other day, and it made me smile. Thought you might enjoy it too.

"Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and 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. Love the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer." - Ranier Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet, July 16, 1903
