Martin Buber Quotations

-God is the mysterium tremendum that appears and overthrows, but he is also the mystery of the self-evident, nearer to me than my I.

-The history of mankind on its road to redemption (is) a process involving two kinds of men, the proud who, if sometimes in the sublimest form, think of themselves, and the humble, who in all matters think of the world. Only when pride subjects itself to humility can it be redeemed; and only when it is redeemed, can the world be redeemed.

-Every person born in this world represents something new, something that never existed before, something original and unique… and every man or woman’s foremost task is the actualization of his or her unique, unprecedented and never-recurring possibilities.
Martin Buber
