“The aspect of human beings that sets us off from all other creatures is that of imaginative wisdom. Animals see things as they are, but we see them as they can be. We have been given the Divine ability to transform. I have never seen anything give a person as much energy as a vision that he or she is working to bring into reality. I have seen people forsake sleep, food, and comfort for the sake of a project that they love.
There is something very holy about a human being dedicated to a purpose, something more precious than I can attempt to put into words. It is the miracle of creation. It is exactly this miracle which enables us to transcend circumstances. Any circumstance is a good starting point for God.”
Alan Cohen, in “The Dragon Doesn’t Live Here Anymore”
