“Sometimes we build such high walls for protection that we forget that our greatest enemy can grow from within.”
Eishes Chayil, Hush

“Can the dead hear our prayers? When the words come floating up, do they go straight to God's sacred domain, or does all of heaven know our desperation?”
Eishes Chayil, Hush

“We built walls, and built them high. The walls would keep the gentiles and their terrifying world far away. The walls would protect us and shelter us—and as we built them higher, thicker, wider, we forgot to look inside. We forgot that the greatest enemies always grow from within.”
Eishes Chayil, Hush
