There are times when our eyes are closed, our minds can only dream aimlessly and our hearts are as lifeless, impervious stone. And yet we stand firm, with stubborn chutzpah, us against an entire world.

The mind and the heart have their roots. But that stubborn chutzpah, that knowledge of who you are and what is the truth for which you stand, its roots reach to a source of living waters that never cease nor change.
