Deborah’s Recent Updates

“As far as I can remember, I have always wanted everything from life, everything it can possibly give me. This desire separates me from people who are willing to settle for less. I cannot even comprehend how people's desires can be small, ambitions narrow and limited, when the possibilities are endless”
Deborah Feldman, Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots

“I am hungry for power, but not to lord over others; only to own myself.”
Deborah Feldman

“I can't bear the thought of living an entire lifetime on this planet and not getting to do all the things I dream of doing, simply because they aren't allowed. I don't think it will ever be enough, this version of freedom, until it is all-inclusive. I don't think I can be happy unless I'm truly independent.”
Deborah Feldman, Unorthodox: The Scandalous Rejection of My Hasidic Roots

“Not that I want to be a god or a hero. Just to change into a tree, grow for ages, not hurt anyone.”
Czeslaw Milosz

“In a room where
people unanimously maintain
a conspiracy of silence,
one word of truth
sounds like a pistol shot.”
Czesław Miłosz

“Learning

To believe you are magnificent. And gradually to discover that you are not magnificent. Enough labor for one human life.”
Czesław Miłosz

“The purpose of poetry is to remind us
how difficult it is to remain just one person,
for our house is open, there are no keys in the doors,
and invisible guests come in and out at will.”
Czeslaw Milosz
