…I want to beg you, as much as I can, dear sir, to be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions 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 then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.
– Rainer Maria Rilke, in his letter dated July 16, 1903. Excerpt taken from Letters to a Young Poet, translated by M.D. Herter Norton.
