The Sixties Radical Azriel

“A home,” wrote Solomon the Wise, “is built with wisdom.”

And not with a hammer.

Because wisdom is the glue of beauty. Wisdom, meaning the ability to step back and see all of the picture, the past and, most important, the future to which all this leads. To see the truth inside each thing.

Without wisdom, there are only fragments. With wisdom, there is a whole. And there is peace between all the parts of that whole.

Sefer Hasichot 5704, page 100.
