Monday's Quotes

"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." 

~ Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

PS - Sending my Monday quote early as I will be away on Monday.
Have a good day!

What a beautiful sentiment, one I will be thinking about today. She has a wonderful way with words, doesn't she?

Quite a thought-provoking quote - but then they always are from this great Czech born writer. I love that it was written to a young poet.
Being as he was from Prague we ate dinner at the Rainer Maria Rilke restaurant when visiting that beautiful city. For anyone going there I recommend it highly - wonderful Czech food, amazing atmosphere and a charming manager. It's easy to find - near the river.

Hugs - Mary
