My aim for this webpage, is for it to be a playground of wisdom. I'm looking for quotes and phrases to scatter in this playpen that upon reading, can put a little smile our face.

Rainer Maria Rilke's Lovely Quote:
"I beg you, to have patience with everything unresolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves as if they were locked rooms or books written in a very foreign language. 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" (Rainer Maria Rilke)
