Have patience with everything
that remains unsolved in your heart.
Try to love the questions themselves,
like locked rooms and like books,
written in a foreign language.
Do not now look for answers.
They cannot now be given to you,
because you could not live them.
It is a question of experiencing everything.
At present you need to live the question.
Perhaps you will gradually,
without even noticing it,
find yourself experiencing
the answer, some distant day.
