Anthony De Mello -

Before the young man began his studies, he wanted assurance from the Master.
"Can you teach me the goal of human life?
""I cannot," replied the Master.
"Or at least its meaning?
""I cannot.
""Can you indicate to me the nature of death and of life beyond the grave?
""I cannot.
"The young man walked away in scorn. The disciples were dismayed that their Master had been shown up in a poor light.
Said the Master soothingly, "Of what is it to comprehend life's nature and life's meaning if you have never tasted it? I'd rather you ate your pudding than speculated on it.

"Related Quote:
"Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves... Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given to you because you will not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer."

- Rainer Maria Rilke
