I belong to the tribe of Levi.More Shmuel Yosef Agnon quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Who were my mentors in poetry and literature? This is a matter of opinion. Some see in my books the influences of authors whose names, in my ignorance, I have not even heard, while others see the influences of poets whose names I have heard but whose writings I have not read. And what is my opinion? From whom did I receive nurture? Not every man remembers the name of the cow which supplied him with each drop of milk he has drunk.More Shmuel Yosef Agnon quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
God in heaven sits on high and plays games with us. He has plenty to do up there, what with building worlds and then knocking them down again, breaking things up and then rebuilding them, and yet he can manage to put his mind even to a little grocer in his shop or to a babe in the cradle.More Shmuel Yosef Agnon quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The fate of the singers who, like my songs, went up in flame was also the fate of the books which I later wrote. All of them went up in flame to Heaven in a fire which broke out one night at my home in Bad Homburg as I lay ill in a hospital.More Shmuel Yosef Agnon quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
