The poet Rainer Maria Rilke exchanged special letters with a young, doubtful and novice poet.What he then wrote to Kappus , at the beginning of the twentieth century, is still true today.
Love your questions
Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart
and try to look at your questions lovingly,
like locked rooms.
Or like books written in a very foreign language.
Do not now seek the answers .
which cannot be given you ,
because you would not be able to live them yet.
It is about “living” everything.
Live your questions now.
And perhaps you will then gradually,
without noticing it
in your answer.
Rainer Maria Rilke
from :Letters to a Young Poet
