Awe is an intuition for the dignity of all things, a realization that things not only are what they are but also stand, however remotely... - Abraham Joshua Heschel Quotes

Quote:Awe is an intuition for the dignity of all things, a realization that things not only are what they are but also stand, however remotely, for something supreme. Awe is a sense for transcendence, for the reference everywhere to mystery beyond all things. It enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine. ... to sense the ultimate in the common and the simple: to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal. What we cannot comprehend by analysis, we become aware of in awe. - Abraham Joshua Heschel Quotes
