Bug Juice

"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

In response, all I can say is, do not let the unanswered questions frustrate you. If life is a mystery, why would we expect everything to have an answer?
