Live the Questions Now

Live the Questions Now

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.

Live the questions now. Perhaps
then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even
noticing it,
live your way into the answer.

Rainer Maria Rilke, 1903
"Letters to a Young Poet"
