I beg you… to 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 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 ever noticing it,
live your way into the answer… 

- Rainer Maria Rilke -
