“Have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves.” ~Rilke
Georgia Peach — ah, sweetness!
Love the Rilke quote and can feel the juice from that peach running down my chin right now!
I practically inhaled the Georgia peaches when I had them. The Indiana peaches are just ripening — and just as juicy and delicious.
I think it’s also important to know that some questions can never be solved, and we may not get answers for everything. Sometimes we may just need to learn to live in a limbo.
Love the peach. I eat a lot of them!
Good point, Janet!
Wish that my son had brought back twice the amount of peaches from Georgia, but local ones should be ready in about a week!
What a wonderful quote – and it’s particularly apt for me right now.
I usually stumble over anything that begins “have patience” — and can always use the reminder!
Oh do I love Rilke. Great quote!
I didn’t read anything by Rilke until about 2 years ago. Really like his writings.
Have you read “Letters to a Young Poet?” It’s magnificent.
No. It’s been on my list for some time. Must.Go.To.Library!
Peachy wisdom from Rilke. Great quote. Like all good things – harder to do than it sounds.
So true. If it were easy Rilke’s words wouldn’t have been memorable. I could tell myself this every day until I die and I still won’t master the practice.
