And now for the Quote of the Week:
There is an excellence or profit to wisdom from folly itself, for if there were no folly, wisdom and its words would not be recognized.
--Zohar, Vol. C, folio 47b, Soncino translation
There is no better handle on wisdom than absurdity; and if not for the absurd, wisdom would remain obscured.
--same as above, translated by Rabbi Gershon Winkler
