Thoughtful Wednesday


"The great thing in this world is not so much 
where we stand, as in 
what direction we are moving."

Oliver Wendell Holmes

Thoughtful Friday 171


"I want to beg you, as much as I can, 
to be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart 
and to try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms 
and like books that are 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.

Resolve to be always beginning—to be a beginner!"
From Rainer Maria Rilke's   Letters on Love
