Daily Quote
The Tablets were each six handbreadths long and three handbreadths wide. Moses held two handbreadths, G-d held two handbreadths, and in between were two handbreadths of space. Moses' hands prevailed, and he grabbed hold of the Tablets and broke them... as it is written (Deuteronomy 9:17): "And I grabbed hold of the two tablets"
  –Midrash Tanchuma
