Words from Rainer Maria Rilke

Here is a quote I just rediscovered, which deals with something I mentioned in my radio interview – how I feel life is a process and is not about the result. I love the way it is stated here. It reminds me that life is not a stationary thing, it is always moving and changing and growing:

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and learn to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not seek the answer, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them.”

– Rainer Maria Rilke
