Patience

"Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart. Try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Do not now look for the answers. They cannot now be given to you because you could not live them. It is a question of experiencing everything. At present you need to live the question. Perhaps you will gradually, without even noticing it, find yourself experiencing the answer, some distant day."

This quote was taken from Letters to a Young Poet, a collection of 10 letters written by poet Rainer Maria Rilke to Franz Xaver Kappus.  I read this book a few months ago and Rilke's words still resonate with me. This quote is significant because it speaks to something I personally struggle with - patience. The advice he gives is to not always seek answers to our questions. Instead, we will find the answers by living.
