Quotes to live by from Rainer Maria Rilke:

All emotions are pure which gather you and lift you up; that emotion is impure which seizes only one side of your being and so distorts you.

Believe that with your feelings and your work you are taking part in the greatest; the more strongly you cultivate this belief, the more will reality and the world go forth from it.
Live your questions now, and perhaps even without knowing it, you will live along some distant day into your answers.

I love Rilke so much (even named my son after him...that and a certain Seattle mountain ;-). Thank you for these lovely quotes. They really resonate with me right now :-)
