Rabbi Heschel

G-d is not a hypothesis derived from logical assumptions, but an immediate insight, self-evident as light. [G-d] is not something to be sought in the darkness with the light of reason. [G-d] is the light.  – Rabbi 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.  – Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel

Our goal should be to live life in radical amazement. … get up in the morning and look at the world in a way that takes nothing for granted. Everything is phenomenal; everything is incredible; never treat life casually. To be spiritual is to be amazed.  – Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel
