Rainer Maria Rilke | Be Patient


Rainer Maria Rilke | Be Patient

With all that is unresolved in your heart, 
And try to love the questions themselves. 
Do not seek for the answers that cannot be given, 
For you would not be able to live them,

And the point is, to live everything. 
Live the questions now, 
And perhaps, without knowing it, 
You will live along some distant day 
Into the answers.

Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926)
Extract from “Über die Geduld” (c. 1903)
