Wise Words from a Man of Wonder ...



In the preface of a book of Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel's writings, it is observed that our age is one where men know more and more about less and less ...

When I read that, it took me back to a moment in a class back in my University days when one of my class mates made the following observation:

In University, we learn more and more about less and less until we have learned absolutely everything there is to know about NOTHING at all ... Then they give us a PhD and send us out to teach it ...

Hmm, maybe Rabbi Heschel had it right when he said simply:

I asked for wonder ...

Maybe wonder and awe is all we need ...
