Words for the Day

The existence of mutuality between God and humankind cannot be proved, just as God’s existence cannot be proved. Yet whoever dares to speak of it, bears witness, and calls to witness the one to whom they speak–whether that witness is now or in the future.

Martin Buber, I and Thou, translated by Ronald Gregor Smith, Scribner Classics, 2000 (1958), 126.
