“GLI EBREI HANNO SEI SENSI
Tatto, gusto, vista, odorato, udito... memoria. Mentre i gentili fanno esperienza del mondo mediante i sensi tradizionali e usano la memoria solo come strumento di second'ordine per interpretare i fatti, per gli ebrei la memoria non è meno primaria della puntura di uno spillo, o del suo argenteo luccichio, o del gusto del sangue che sprigiona il dito. L'ebreo è punto da uno spillo e ricorda altri spilli. E' solo riconducendo la puntura dello spillo ad altre punture - quando sua madre tentava di aggiustargli la manica con il suo braccio dentro; quando le dita di suo nonno si addormentarono accarezzando la fronte madida di suo bisnonno; quando Abramo saggiò il coltello per essere sicuro che Isacco non sentisse dolore - che l'ebreo appura perchè faccia male. Quando un ebreo incontra uno spillo, domanda: Che cosa mi ricorda? * Estratto del Libro degli antecedenti”

“Grandfather and I did not utter words pending the drive, which is not abnormal, because we have never uttered multitudinous words. I made efforts not to spleen him, but nonetheless did. For one example, I forgot to examine the map, and we missed our entrance to the superway. “Please do not punch me,” I said, “but I made a miniature error with the map.” Grandfather kicked the stop pedal, and my face gave a high-five to the front window.”
Jonathan Safran Foer, Everything is Illuminated
