Consonance and Disonance by Scott Naismith

THANK YOU, krcc, for nominating Scribe for Love, Truth and Peace to a 3-day quote challenge.

Quote # 1 by Rainer Maria Rilke

“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.

Do not seek the answers which cannot be given you – because you would not be able to live them.

And the point is – to live everything.”


Three years ago, when I discovered this quote, I received it as an answered prayer to a matter close to my heart with someone I love very much who chooses to be distant from me.

This quote is a life lesson that can be applied to any situation, and because of this quote I now live more peacefully.

May this quote bring you light and serenity.
