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 to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now.
– Rainer Marie Rilke, 1903.
From Letters to a Young Poet, 1927.
This quote tumbled around my mind as I wrote the chapter of After the Storm that will be published tomorrow.
