The dietary laws of kashrut are designed to differentiate and distance the observant person from the rest of the world.

Often the demands of the outside world become so great that we lose track of what we really want in life and spend our time trying to live up to someone else's expectations. Even worse, we internalize those expectations and convince ourselves that they are our own.

The professor said, "photograph what you know or what you want to know."

A shrink I met at a party a while back told me that crying is perhaps the only proper response to what is going on now.

Here's the plain truth, folks: Hope is not a consumer product. You have to generate your own hope. You do that by demonstrating to yourself that you are brave enough to face reality and competent enough to deal with the circumstances that it presents.
