Rivqa and 2 other people liked Bogi Takács's status update
Bogi Takács
Bogi Takács is on page 25 of Inner Space: I read an article that seemed to say that this was some weird new age take on Kabbalah. Uh? This is a very traditional Jewish book so far. (I would have been surprised if it wasn't; having read many of R' Kaplan's books.)

Wanted to read it especially because he uses some modern analogies for his explanations and I'm writing something related to that right now.

“It is perfectly okay to write garbage--as long as you edit brilliantly.”

Samuel Adams
“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.”
Samuel Adams

Richard Siken
“We have not touched the stars,
nor are we forgiven, which brings us back
to the hero’s shoulders and the gentleness that comes,
not from the absence of violence, but despite
the abundance of it.”
Richard Siken, Crush
