Interviewer: What message do you have for today’s children?

Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel:
Let them remember
That there is meaning beyond absurdity
Let them be sure that every deed counts
That every word has power
And that we all can do our share
to redeem the world
In spite of all the absurdities
And all frustrations
And all disappointments.
And above all, let them remember
To build a life
As if it were a work of art.
