"Our reason is the wall that makes us doubt heaven. The absurd is what makes us abandon exile on earth" (L. Cattiaux, The Message Rediscovered 6, 11')

"Such harmony is in immortal souls; But whilst this muddy vesture of decay Doth grossly close it in, we cannot hear it." (Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice)

"Foolish exile, says the Lord, carrying me fixed in a pious image" (E. d'Hooghvorst, Aphorisms of the New World)

"Rabbi Samuel said: Before the destruction of the temple, the divine presence remained residing in it, as it says in this verse: The Lord is in his Holy Temple . ( Habakkuk 2, 20 ) But since its destruction, the divine presence has taken itself and retired to heaven, and for this reason it is said: The Lord hath prepared his throne in the heavens. ( Psalms 103, 19) [.] Rabbi Aha said: The divine presence never left the western wall, for it is said: He standeth behind our wall. ( Songs 2, 9). And also: His eyes behold, his eyelids try, the children of men . ( Psalms 11, 4) ( Midrash Exodus Rabbah )
