Rainer Maria Rilke
“Have patience with everything that remains unsolved in your heart.
...live in the question.”
Rainer Maria Rilke, Letters to a Young Poet

“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.”

Friedrich Nietzsche
“The most spiritual men, as the strongest, find their happiness where others would find their destruction: in the labyrinth, in hardness against themselves and others, in experiments. Their joy is self-conquest: asceticism becomes in them nature, need, and instinct. Difficult tasks are a privilege to them; to play with burdens that crush others, a recreation. Knowledge–a form of asceticism. They are the most venerable kind of man: that does not preclude their being the most cheerful and the kindliest.”
Friedrich Nietzsche, The Anti-Christ

R. Buckminster Fuller
“The physical is inherently entropic, giving off energy in ever more disorderly ways. The metaphysical is antientropic, methodically marshalling energy. Life is antientropic. It is spontaneously inquisitive. It sorts out and endeavors to understand”
Richard Buckminster Fuller, Synergetics: Explorations in the Geometry of Thinking

“Be crumbled.
So wild flowers will come up where you are.
You have been stony for too many years.
Try something different.
