“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 would 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, some day far in the future, you will gradually, without noticing it, live your way into the answer.”
~ Rainier Maria Rilke
