THE DUALITY OF MAN

THOUGHT FOR TODAY:

THE DUALITY OF MAN

Man is a duality of mysterious grandeur and pompous aridity. A vision of God and a mountain of dust. It is because of his being dust that his iniquities may be forgiven….and it is because of his being an image…that his righteousness is expected.

— Abraham Heschel
