Asch, Sholem

  • God does not seek to destroy the evil nations, but their evil.

  • Humankind's ladder to God is a ladder of deeds.

  • Not the power to remember, but its very opposite, the power to forget, is a necessary condition for our existence.

  • Now, more than any time previous in human history, we must arm ourselves with an ethical code so that each of us will be aware that he is protecting the moral merchandise absent of which life is not worth living.

  • The lash may force men to physical labor; it cannot force them to spiritual creativity.

  • The sword conquered for a while, but the spirit conquers forever!

  • Through our soul is our contact with heaven.

  • Without a love of humankind there is no love of God.

  • Writing comes more easily if you have something to say.
