Excerpt from "Letters To A Young Poet," by Rainer Maria Rilke

"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."

— Rainer Maria Rilke, from 
Letters to a Young Poet
