The anchor of meaning resides in an abyss, deeper than the reach of despair. Yet the abyss is not not infinite... - Abraham Joshua Heschel Quotes

Quote:The anchor of meaning resides in an abyss, deeper than the reach of despair. Yet the abyss is not not infinite; its bottom may suddenly be discovered within the confines of a human heart or under the debris of might doubts. This may be the vocation of man: to say "Amen" to being and to the Author of being; to live in defiance of absurdity, notwithstanding futility and defeat; to attain faith in God even in spite of God. - Abraham Joshua Heschel Quotes
