i was painting part of the studio today....
had to take some stuff down off the walls.

i take this quote down, read it and shake my
head.....i love love love this quote.

you've all seen it......but maybe you want to
see it again.

i believe this is rilke......

'i beg you to have patience with everything unresolved
in your heart and 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 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 ever noticing it,
live your way into the answer.'

Love it!
Live your way into the answer. Kind of implies you have to be awake and aware to see the answer when you get there!

OH it is Rilke!! It's one of my favoritest quotes, from his "Letters to a young poet"
