Words for the Day

Those who know the breath of the Spirit trespass if they desire to get power over the Spirit or to ascertain its nature and qualities. But they are also disloyal when they ascribe the gift to themselves.

Martin Buber, I and Thou, translated by Ronald Gregor Smith, Scribner Classics, 2000 (1958), 120.
