Rabbi Abraham "the Angel" once visited his father-in-law in Kremnitz, and saw him standing at the window, contemplating the mountain overlooking the town for a long time.

One of the chassidim in the room became impatient, and asked the chassidic master: Had he never had seen this mountain before?

Said the Rabbi of Kremnitz: "I stand here and wonder: how such a small rock could puff itself up till it became such a big mountain!"
