Blogging Elul Day 19: Ask: Angels and Humans

The rabbi of Kobryn once looked at the Heavens and cried: “Angel, little angel! It is no great trick to be an angel up there in the sky! You don’t have to eat and drink, beget children and earn money. Just you come down to earth and worry about eating and drinking, about raising children and earning money, and we shall see if you keep on being an angel. If you succeed you may boast—but not now!”

-From Martin Buber's Tales of the Hasidim
