Rilke said it best: “I would like to beg you dear Sir, as well as I can, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. Don’t search for the 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. Live the questions now. Perhaps then, someday far in the future, you will gradually, without even noticing it, live your way into the answer.”


One thought on “Page 350

  1. Hi Kathleen,

    I’ve been reading your blog and love your posts on the writing process. It seems that you are well into revision now – can you see the light at the end of the tunnel? I wanted to ask you what you thought of the Sackett Street manuscript workshop (as I think you mentioned that you’re in it at the moment). I’m thinking of doing the same class in November. I’m also writing a novel where the characters come from 2 centuries – however mine come from 16th-century Venice and 21st-century London.

    Please do send me a PM at my facebook account – would be great to hear from you!
