Live Everything


I want to beg you, as much as I can,

to be patient toward all that is unresolved

in your heart and to try to love the questions

themselves like locked rooms and like books

that are written in a very foreign tongue.

Do not seek the answers, which cannot

be given to you because you would not be able

to live them.

And the point is to live everything.

Live the questions now.

Perhaps you will then gradually,

without noticing it, live along

some distant day into the answer.

– Rainer Maria Rilke
