QuestionMark "And now let us welcome the New Year full of things that have never been." -Rainer Maria Rilke

May we learn to love the questions themselves, as Rilke also reminds us:

"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 the 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." – from his Letters to a Young Poet
