Day 13: Live the Questions.

Paula Modersohn-Becker. Rainer Maria Rilke, 1906

This blog is a big part of my continued recovery, but unfortunately I won’t be able to spend much time online the next few days. So, this evening I’ll simply share a great quote from a great poet whose advice is just as valid for a recovering addict as it as for any young poet.

Be patient toward all
that is unsolved in your heart
and try to learn to love
the questions themselves.

Rainer Maria Rilke
