eleven stones are tossed in a pond

If you think prayer and meditation will answer the problems that are in your heart of hearts, think again. The more I search the less I know. Now this is not necessarily a bad thing, many times a man spends time in contemplation not for the right answer but for the right questions.

~ Dave

"Where is the dwelling of God?"

This was the question with which the rabbi of Kotzk surprised a number of learned men who happened to be visiting him.

They laughed at him: "What a thing to ask! Is not the whole world full of his glory?"

Then he answered his own question:

"God dwells wherever man lets him in"

William Gaylin, Caring (New York: Knopf, 1976) pg. 98
