The words of the prophets are written on a subway wall ... @ 10:17 pm

Currently Emoting: : cheerful cheerful
Currently Consuming:: Simon & Garfunkel -- Sound of Silence

A couple of friends of mine have recently moved into the immediate neighborhood, living now merely a couple of blocks from my humble abode and, fittingly, right behind the local public library. This has the added benefit of being able to detour through stacks of books whenever I go to visit them. In the process, I've come to observe the following inscription on the library's facade:

"Be made whole by books as by great spaces and the stars."


Now, for my lack of money and orthodoxy, that's a lovely and entirely appropriate exhortation. As Rabbi Louis Finkelstein observed -- "When I pray, I speak to God. When I study, God speaks to me."
