Yehuda Amichai quotes

I think the end is endless. It's either a big black hole or a big white light or both together. But it's totally meaningless, because even if someone would explain it, I wouldn't understand it.

My poems are political in the deeper sense of the word. Political means to live in your time, to be a man of your time.

I was a very religious child - I went to synagogue at least once, sometimes twice, a day. And I remember my religiousness as good - I think religion is good for children, especially educated children, because it allows for imagination, a whole imaginative world apart from the practical world.

There are two languages: one as things seem to us and the other of knowledge.

Every intelligent person, whether he's an artist or not - a mathematician, a doctor, a scientist - possesses a poetic way of seeing and describing the world.

I believe if you keep your faith, you keep your trust, you keep the right attitude, if you're grateful, you'll see God open up new doors. Joel Osteen quotes

I can be a nice person, but if someone is messing with someone I care about, the tougher side comes out a little more. Daniella Alonso
