Be patient towards all that is unsolved in your heart; try to love the questions themselves. Do not seek answers which cannot be given to you now because you would not be able to live them now. And the point is to live everything, to live the question now. Perhaps you will then, gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.I read the letters again recently when I stumbled into a translation on the web, on the eve of my seventieth birthday. Have I found answers? Gradually, without noticing it? Perhaps. But it is still the questions that I love, the seeking, the pilgrimage towards the ineffable object of desire that always recedes.
An infinite universe will always have the capacity to surprise.
