Monday Motivation

Have you heard of the blog A Cup of Jo
Of course you have, how silly of me. I have been reading her blog for years, even before starting my own. The other day she posted about Reddit asking, "What is the most beautiful paragraph or sentence you've ever read," followed by a few of her favorites. I am such a sucker for a good quote or inspiring message. (It's why I do Monday Motivation), but in terms of just picking one...? There is no way. So, just just like any other Monday, here is another quote I love, and one I tend to go back to whenever I feel the need for answers instead of living through the questions.
"I beg you to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and 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. 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."
- Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

Do you have one favorite paragraph or sentence? Or are you like me and totally unable to commit to any one phrase.
