“The work of the eyes is done. Go now and do the heart-work on the images imprisoned within you.”
This quote is from my book by Rainer Maria Rilke, called 'Letters to a Young Poet'. I read it some time ago but books like this can be read so many times and each time you find something new that resonates. It's full of surprising wisdom considering Rilke himself was only in his twenties at the time!
“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.”
And Most Importantly...
