“The message from Heschel was that whatever age you are you have a soul, you have a spirit, you have a heart, you have a mind; use them. You have experience; draw on it. You have challenges to pose; pose them. You have learning; use it to teach us.”
~Arnold Eisen from The Spiritual Audacity of Joshua Abraham Heschel

The only way to deal with an unfree world is to become so absolutely free that your very existence is an act of rebellion.
Freedom is never given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.
We are all a little weird, and life’s a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love.
"Human beings make life so interesting. Do you know, that in a universe so full of wonders, they have managed to invent boredom."
Terry Pratchett - The Hogfather.
