Blogging Elul Day 9: Hear

It is told of Rabbi Abraham Jacob of Sadgora, who said, “We can learn from everything. Everything was created to teach us something, and not just what God created. What people create also have something worthwhile to teach us.”
“What can we learn from a train?” a disciple challenged.
“That because of one second a person is likely to be late for everything.”
“And from the telegraph?”
“That from every word is counted and billed.”
“And the telephone?”
“They hear there what we say here.”
-From Martin Buber's Tales of the Hasidim
