[I'm Still Agnostic. But In The Words Of Elton Richards, I'm Now A Reverant Agnostic. Which Isn't An Oxymoron, I Swear. I Now Believe That Whether Or Not There's A God, There Is Such A Thing As Sacredness. Life Is Sacred. The Sabbath Can Be A Sacred Day. Prayer Can Be A Sacred Ritual. There Is Something Transcendent, Beyond The Everyday. It's Possible That Humans Created This Sacredness Ourselves, But That Doesn't Take Away From Its Power Or Importance.]

Quotes About New Ventures

"Now that the book is out in the world, Im amazed all over again at what my friend did for me in prompting me to ditch realism for a more magical approach. In some ways, the Golem and the Jinni are the ultimate immigrants. They arent just new to New York or America; theyre new to people. Like those around them, they wrestle with issues of religion versus doubt and duty versus self-determination—but as inescapable aspects of their own otherworldly natures. For seven years Ive lived with their questions, arguments, and adventures, and its been one of the greatest gifts of my life." - Author: Helene Wecker

Quotes About Europa

"Până și lectura are o funcție mitologică, nu numai pentru că înlocuiește rostirea miturilor în societățile arhaice și literatura orală, care se mai păstrează în comunitățile rurale din Europa, ci mai ales pentru că îi permite omului midern o „ieșire din timp", asemănătoare cu cea înlesnită de mituri (...) omul modern este proiectat, prin lectură, în afara duratei sale personale și integrat altor ritmuri, trăind într-o altă „istorie"." - Author: Mircea Eliade
