On the sign:
אתה כה צעיר, כל כך לפני כל התחלה, ויש
על לבי, עד כמה שאני מסוגל לזה, אדון
חביב, להתאזר באורך רוח כלפי כל הבלתי
נפתר שבלבך, ולנסות לאהוב את השאלות
כשלעצמן, כאהוב מעונות סגורים וכאהוב
ספרים הכתובים בשפה זרה מאוד. אל
תחקור אחרי התשובות, שאין לתתן
לך, כי על כן לא היית יכול לחיות אותן.
והלא הכוונה היא לחיות הכל.
חיה עכשיו את השאלות, ושמא תגיע לאט
לאט, בלי לחוש זאת, ביום מן הימים
הרחוקים לחיות את התשובה.

ריינה מריה רילקה וורספד ליד ברמן. 1903, מגרמנית ישראל זמורה

Sie sind so jung, so vor allem
Anfang, und ich möchte Sie, so
gut ich es kann, bitten, lieber
Herr, Geduld zu haben gegen
alles Ungelöste in Ihrem Herzen
und zu versuchen, die Fragen
selbst liebzuhaben wie
verschlossene Stuben und wie
Bücher, die in einer sehr fremden
Sprache geschrieben sind. Forschen
Sie jetzt nicht nach den Antworten,
die Ihnen nicht gegeben werden
können, weil Sie sie nicht leben
könnten. Und es handelt sich
darum, alles zu leben. Leben Sie
jetzt die Fragen. Vielleicht leben
Sie dann allmählich, ohne es zu
merken, eines fernen Tages in die
Antwort hinein.

Rainer Maria Rilke, Zur Zeit Worpswede bei Bremen. 1903

In the current plaque appears a poem by the Austrian poet Rainer Maria Rilke (1875-1926). Rilke, who was born in Prague, is considered one of the greatest poets of the twentieth century. The poem is taken from his book "Letters to a young poet" ten letters he wrote to a young poet (Franz Xaver Kappus).

Translation of the text on the sign:
You are so young, so especially
beginning, and I want you, like that
well i can, ask, dear
Lord, have patience against
everything unresolved in your heart
and to try the questions
to love yourself like
locked rooms and how
Books in a very strange
language are written. Research
Don’t look for the answers now
that are not given to you
can because you don’t live them
could. And it is
about living everything. Do you live
now the questions. Maybe live
Then gradually, without it too
remember some distant day in the
answer inside.

Rainer Maria Rilke, Currently Worpswede near Bremen. 1903
