loving the questions

July 8, 2011

Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart.

Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language.

Do not now look for the answers.

They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them.

It is a question of experiencing everything.

At present you need to live the question.

Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day.

~ Rainer Maria Rilke

Wishing you all a beautiful and joyful weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    Beautiful.

    A dear friend of mine just lost her Mother and if you don’t mind, I would like to forward this to her.

    Cheers to a wonderful weekend.

    Sorry to hear about your friend’s mother Rick.
    Of course you can forward this to her.
    I hope she finds some solace in Rilke’s wise words.
