The Questions

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, like locked rooms and like books that are now written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”

I’m having one of those sort of days where it’s a relief to know that I shouldn’t seek the answers.  I need to just remember (again) to get comfortable with the questions.  And even…*gasp* to love them.


  1. I'm so impressed with what little I know of you. In my struggles, I seem to deal similarly. It's satisfying to see another person explore the dark places, with such honesty.
