Relation is mutual. My Thou affects me, as I affect it. We are moulded by our pupils and built up by our works. … We live our lives inscrutably included within the streaming mutual life of the universe.

Martin Buber. I and Thou. Translated by Ronald Gregor Smith. Scribner Classics, 2000 (1958). 29.
