“God comes to each of us in the form we can best perceive Him. To you, just now, He was a heron. To someone else, He might come as a flower or even a breeze.”
Richard Zimler, The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon

“Bruheem kol dumuyay eloha! Blessed are all God's self-portraits.”
Richard Zimler, The Last Kabbalist of Lisbon

“When loved ones depart forever, all that remains is the light from their eyes trapped in their jewelry. Beyond memory, it is the only souvenir we ever keep.”
Richard Zimler
