Trivial questions sometimes require deep and expansive knowledge of the cosmos just to answer them.

Human beings don’t live forever, Reuven. We live less than the time it takes to blink an eye, if we measure our lives against eternity. So it may be asked what value there is to human life. There is so much pain in the world. What does it mean to have to suffer so much if our lives are nothing more than a blink of an eye… I learned a long time ago, Reuven, that a blink of the eye itself is nothing. But the eye that blinks, that is something. A span of life is nothing. But the man (or woman) who lives that span, (they) are something. They can fill that tiny span with memory, so that its quality is immeasurably.

Malo y bueno, mi hija, como todo en este mundo. La sombra y la luz son distintas túnicas de Dios, pero una sin la otra no podrían existir jamás ...
(Bad and good, my daughter, like everything in this world. The shadow and the light are distinct tunics of God, but one without the other could not exist ever ...)

There is a disease in this country. Its symptoms include finger pointing as to who is to blame for our economic decline. Its most insidious symptom is the demonization of government and its public servants, especially educators. You may believe that as Americans, we deserve freedom and prosperity. I'm sorry, freedom and prosperity are earned every day, and the currency of freedom and prosperity is education.

Hear me people: We have now to deal with another race - small and feeble when our fathers first met them, but now great and overbearing. Strangely enough they have a mind to till the soil and the love of possession is a disease with them. These people have many rules that the rich may break but the poor may not. They take their tithes from the poor and weak to support the rich and those who rule.
