Quote of the Day ...

Yet we have finally discovered what prophets and saints have always known: bread and beauty will not save humanity. There is a passion and a drive for cruel deeds which only the fear of God can soothe; there is a suffocating sensuality in man which only holiness can ventilate.

Abraham Joshua Heschel,
"The Mystical Element in Judaism,"
Moral Grandeur and Spiritual Audacity
