One of my favorite excerpt from Rainer Maria Rilke’s 1903 classic, Letters to a Young Poet — a beautifully articulated case for The Importance Of Living The Questions, embracing uncertainty, and allowing for intuition.
I beg you, to 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. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.
Letters to a Young Poet is exquisite and timeless in its entirety.
