Middle got a postcard from the art school

which read:

Live the questions. Don't search for answers, which could not be given to you now, because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything.
Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.


~R. M. Rilke
