Mindful Sip: Be Patient

by mandy lipka

This quote has been dear to me since I was in high school. I keep it posted at my desk to remind myself daily.

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 written in a foreign tongue. Do not 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 find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some distant day into the answer.” / Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet
