Food For Thought

Be patient with all that is unresolved in your heart, and try to love the questions themselves. Do not seek the answers that cannot be given, for you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions now, and perhaps without knowing it you will live along some day into the answers. - Rainer Maria Rilke

Do not assume that he who seeks to comfort you now, lives untroubled among the simple and quiet words that sometimes do you good. His life may also have much sadness and difficulty, that remains far beyond yours. Were it otherwise, he would never have been able to find these words. - Rainer Maria Rilke

A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts. . . . How could a person possibly become what he is not thinking? Nor is any thought, when persistently entertained, too small to have its effect. The ‘divinity that shapes our ends’ is indeed in ourselves. It is one’s very self. - Spencer W. Kimball
