live the questions

This quote resonates so deeply with who I am that I'm tempted to have it tattooed on my body somewhere:

"I beg you 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 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."

~Rainer Maria Rilke~
