I would like to beg you, dear sir,
to have patience with everything
unresolved in your heart
and to 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.
Perhaps then, some day in
the far future,
you will gradually,
without even noticing it,
live your way into the answer.
