I live my life in widening circle
That reach out across the world.
I may not ever complete the last one,
But I give myself to it.
I circle around God, that primordial tower.
I have been circling for thousands of years,
And I still don't know: am I a falcon,
A storm, or a great song?
Rainer Maria Rilke

    Be patient towards all that
    is unresolved in your heart...
    try to adore questions, so similar to
    locked rooms and books written
    in a foreign language.
    Don't seek now those answers that can't be given to you
    for you wouldn't be able to live with them.
    Living is everything. Live the questions now.
    Maybe you shall receive it, without you noticing it,
    to live the distant
    day in which you'll have the answer.
    Rainer Maria Rilke
