      ... have patience with everything unresolved in your heart
      and to 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.
