The Birthday of Eternity

I don't want to plaster posters of God
on all wide-open street corners,
but instead, celebrate the birthday of eternity
in the tiniest corner of every moment.
- Abraham Joshua Heschel
from The Ineffible Name of God:Man
כ’וויל נשט פּלאטירן גאָט
אויף אַלע אויפגעפּראַלטע ראַגעס
נאַר דער אייבּיקייטס געבּוּרטסטאָג
פייערן אין ווינקל פון די רגעס
אברהם יהושע העשל
דער שם המפורש: מענטש
