“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 now written in a very foreign tongue.

Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer.”

Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet (via wordsnquotes)

“Nobody will ever love you as much as an artist can. On your worst days, they will find poetry in the knots of your hair.”
