Quote of the Day

“When superimposed as a yoke, as a dogma, as a fear, religion tends to violate rather than nurture the spirit of man. Religion must be an altar upon which the fire of the soul may be kindled in holiness.”
-Abraham Joshua Heschel
God in Search of Man: A Philosophy of Judaism
[San Francisco: Harper & Row, Harper Torchbooks. 1996 – page 317]
