Shabbat shalom

Shabbat shalom

The eternal Thou can by its nature not become It … and yet in accordance with our nature we are continually making the eternal Thou into It, into some thing – making God into a thing.

Martin Buber, I and Thou, translated by Ronald Gregor Smith, Scribner Classics, 2000 (1958), 106.
