The Questions Themselves

"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 could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything." -R.M. Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet


  1. This was precisely what I needed to hear this afternoon.

  2. Taped in Harold Arlen's notebook: (Composer of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow")
    "Works of art are of an intimate loneliness. Only love can grip and fairly judge them. Consider yourself and your feeling right every time."


Your thoughts always bring a smile to my face. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave them.
