Rilke -

I am starting to forget what I have posted, so may be doing some repeating, but these words of Rilke are so wonderful that even if you have seen them innumerable times, in my opinion, it can almost never be too much.  

Be patient toward all that is
Unsolved in your heart
And try to love the questions
Do not seek the answers
That cannot be given to you
Because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is to live everything.
Live the questions now.
And perhaps you will gradually
Without noticing it
Live along some distant day
Into the answers.

- Rainer Maria Rilke
