Shabbat shalom

It is significant that [the Maggid of Mezritch’s] favorite simile is that of the father adjusting himself to his little son who is eager to learn. He regards the world as God’s self-adjustment to his little son: Man, whom he rears with tender care to enable him to grow up to his Father.

Martin Buber, Tales of the Hasidim, Schocken Books, 1947, 39.
