    Haim Shapira
    “Between the natural way and the path of grace there is a deep abyss. It is in that gap that we live our lives as a giant struggle between good and evil, Satan and God, despair and love. Whenever despair wins, it is the natural way. Whenever love wins, it is a moment of grace. When love is victorious and defeats despair completely, you've reached the path of grace.”
    Haim Shapira, על הדברים החשובים באמת

    Wisława Szymborska
    “We have a soul at times.
    No one’s got it non-stop,
    for keeps.

    Day after day,
    year after year
    may pass without it.

    it will settle for awhile
    only in childhood’s fears and raptures.
    Sometimes only in astonishment
    that we are old.

    It rarely lends a hand
    in uphill tasks,
    like moving furniture,
    or lifting luggage,
    or going miles in shoes that pinch.

    It usually steps out
    whenever meat needs chopping
    or forms have to be filled.

    For every thousand conversations
    it participates in one,
    if even that,
    since it prefers silence.

    Just when our body goes from ache to pain,
    it slips off-duty.

    It’s picky:
    it doesn’t like seeing us in crowds,
    our hustling for a dubious advantage
    and creaky machinations make it sick.

    Joy and sorrow
    aren’t two different feelings for it.
    It attends us
    only when the two are joined.

    We can count on it
    when we’re sure of nothing
    and curious about everything.

    Among the material objects
    it favors clocks with pendulums
    and mirrors, which keep on working
    even when no one is looking.

    It won’t say where it comes from
    or when it’s taking off again,
    though it’s clearly expecting such questions.

    We need it
    but apparently
    it needs us
    for some reason too.”
    Wisława Szymborska

    Abraham Joshua Heschel
    “A test of a people is how it behaves toward the old. It is easy to love children. Even tyrants and dictators make a point of being fond of children. But the affection and care for the old, the incurable, the helpless are the true gold mines of a culture.”
    Abraham Joshua Heschel

    A.A. Milne
    “Did you ever stop to think, and forget to start again?”
    A.A. Milne

    A.A. Milne
    “When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"

    "What's for breakfast?" said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"

    "I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.

    Pooh nodded thoughtfully. "It's the same thing," he said.”
    A.A. Milne

    Douglas Adams
    “For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much—the wheel, New York, wars and so on—whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man—for precisely the same reasons.”
    Douglas Adams, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
