The pure righteous do not complain of the dark, but increase the light; they do not complain of evil, but increase justice; they do not complain of heresy, but increase faith; they do not complain of ignorance, but increase wisdom.
Arpilei Tohar (1914), p. 2.
When the spirit shines, even foggy skies make pleasant light.Abraham Isaac Kook
The delight of the Torah is ignited by an inner awareness. A man begins to sense the great tapestry of each letter and point. Every concept and content, every notion and idea, of every spiritual movement, of every vibration, intellectual and emotional, from the immediate and general to the distant and detailed, from matters lofty, spiritual, and ethical according to their outward profile, to matters practical, obligatory, seemingly frightening, and forceful, and at the same time complex and full of content and great mental exertion — all together become known by a supernal holy awareness.Abraham Isaac Kook
The good will is all — and all the talents are ways to fulfill it.Abraham Isaac Kook
We are great and our faults are great and therefore our problems great and great are our consolations.Abraham Isaac Kook
A tiny remnant of a big thing is better than a whole little thing.Abraham Isaac Kook
We forgot we have Holy Body not less than our Holy Spirit.Abraham Isaac Kook
