My favorite quotes: Rainer Maria Rilke

As you may have noticed, the transition from Israel back to NYC and from Mandel Jerusalem Fellows to Congregation Emanu-El of the City of New York has left me little time for blogging. But I did see this quote from Ranier Maria Rilke while riding the subway today (in an ad for the School of Visual Arts), and thought I'd share it with you:
"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."

Shabbat Shalom.

I really do love those quotes, and as cheesey as it is, I have a magnet with the full quotation on it.
Shavuah tov.
