Letters to a Young Poet
by Rainer Maria Rilke
I also love Rilke’s Letters to a Young Poet. I give that to young people. It’s not really about poetry. It’s about life and there’s some wonderful things in there about love and the facile understanding of love that we walk around with and the idea of giving yourself time to grow up and grow into what love can be.— Krista Tippett, source
When Things Fall Apart
by Pema Chödrön
I have gifted Pema Chödrön’s When Things Fall Apart. That’s kind of a sacred text that I carry around with me at all times because things are always falling apart. That’s a book I feel like I can pick up anywhere at any moment and read a paragraph and it will be redemptive.— Krista Tippett, source
