Love the Questions

Ghetto?
Be patient
toward all that is unsolved in your heart,
and try to love the questions themselves.

Do not ask
the answers that cannot be given
because
you would not be able to live with them.

And the point is
to love everything.
Love the questions now.

Perhaps
you will then
gradually
without noticing it
live along some distant day
into the answer.

~~Rainer Maria Rilke

Found today on the beautiful blog Yearning for God by Jan.
