A quote

My favorite quote ever was found in an airport in Ohio a few years ago. I always use it when someone needs any kind of advice for a broken heart. It's helped me, and it's helped a lot of my other friends. So Ms. Fiet, this is for you:

"I beg of you.... to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and 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, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer..." - Rainer Maria Rilke
