Martin Buber

Jewish existential philosopher and theorist of Zionism.
If you want to raise a man from mud and filth, do not think it is enough to stay on top and reach a helping hand down to him. You must go all the way down yourself, down into mud and filth. Then take hold of him with strong hands and pull him and yourself out into the light.More Martin Buber quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
The biblical passage which says of Abraham and the three visiting angels: "And He stood over them under the tree and they did eat" is interpreted by Rabbi Zusya to the effect that man stands above the angels, because he knows something unknown to them, namely, that eating may be hallowed by the eater's intention.... Any natural act, if hallowed, leads to God, and nature needs man for what no angel can perform on it, namely, its hallowing.More Martin Buber quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Everything is full of sacramental substance, everything. Each thing and each function is ever ready to light up into a sacrament.More Martin Buber quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
Creation happens to us, burns into us, changes us, we tremble and swoon, we submit. Creation - we participate in it, we encounter the creator, offer ourselves to him, helpers and companions.More Martin Buber quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
