"And the Breastplate shall not budge from the Apron" (Exodus 28:28) -- a person's most sublime spiritual feelings (symbolized by the High Priest's Breastplate, worn over the heart) must form an inseparable continuum with his or her most ordinary actions (represented by the Apron, worn in back, over the lower part of the body)
