Sunday Citar

Mark Tansey - Triumph Over Mastery II

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it, and live along some distant day into the answer.
~Rainer Maria Rilke

When I looked at that painting and the man in it, I immediately thought to myself... "Where can I get one of those? And does he also have a twin brother?!" :-P lol.

Such a beautiful quote you shared too Kelly! Thank you. Happy Sunday.

The painting reminds me of something out of "Fountainhead." Don't know why...

Loved this part of the quote: "...and live along some distant day into the answer." My answers always seem to come along on a distant day, long after I even asked the question.

Always a pleasure to read your notes Kelly "...Perhaps you will find them gradually, without noticing it" - some scholars encourage us to "hold on to the question" till the answer appears ! Many thanks
