“Swords can only harm those standing right in front of them, while stories determine who will live and who will die in future generations. I”
Yochi Brandes, The Secret Book of Kings

“I believed that only constant surrender would ensure our survival, but Rabbi Akiva and Bar Kokhba proved to me with a string of brilliant victories that if the nation of Israel believes in itself and unifies in a common goal, no power in the world can stand against it, just as it was in the days of the Maccabees.”
Yochi Brandes, The Orchard
