Quote of the Week 37 - Wind, Water, Stone
Wind, Water, Stone
BY OCTAVIO PAZ
Water hollows stone,
wind scatters water,
stone stops the wind.
Water, wind, stone.
Wind carves stone,
stone's a cup of water,
water escapes and is wind.
Stone, wind, water.
Wind sings in its whirling,
water murmurs going by,
unmoving stone keeps still.
Wind, water, stone.
Each is another and no other:
crossing and vanishing
through their empty names:
water, stone, wind.

Quotes of the Week 56 - Winkler, Evil Inclination
--Rabbi Gershon Winkler, from his book, Travels with the Evil Inclination
“I will not be to my predecessors as a donkey, eternally hauling their books. I will explain their teachings and study their ways, but when my perception does not correspond to theirs…I will then decide according to what my own eyes are seeing, and will do so with legal confidence. For the Creator grants wisdom in every generation and in every period, and will not deny goodness to those who are sincere.”
--Rabbi Gershon Winkler, quoting 13th century Rabbi Nachmanides, in Winkler’s book, Travels with the Evil Inclination
