Let no one think: Who am I and what am I to have such tremendous powers of building and destruction.

For we have seen, to our sorrow, the potential for destruction in the release of atomic energy. If such power is concealed in a small quantity of matter—for destructiveness, in denial of the design and purpose of Creation—how much greater is the creative power entrusted to every individual to work in harmony with the Divine purpose. For in this case one is also given special abilities and opportunities by Divine Providence to attain the goal for which we have been created: the realization of a world of goodness and holiness.

People often perceive themselves in terms of their constraints as mortal beings. Yet there are times that call for transcendent actions. One must at times do more than they can possibly do. For each mortal is endowed with a G‑dly soul and the power to transcend mortal constraints.
