Questions? You gotta love 'em!

Maggi Dawn has blogged this quotation from the poet Rilke which has a wonderful insight into the value of questions:

I would like to beg you dear Sir, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to 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. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.

— From the letters of Rainer Maria Rilke, [my emphases].

Maggi's full blog entry is here, together with a link to where she found the reference.

Not sure the candles would work quite so well in our shower?!
