Live the questions now.

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart
and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms
and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue.
Do not now seek the answers,
which cannot be given you
because you would not be able to live them.
And the point is, to live everything.
Live the questions now.
Perhaps you will find them gradually,
Without noticing it,
And live along some distant day into the answer.
-Rainer Maria Rilke

Painting by Elisabeth Slettnes
