Just a bit of leavening…

One can serve God with the body, even with one’s passions; one must only be able to distinguish between the dross and the gold. This world acquires flavor only when a little of the other world is mingled with it. Without nobility of the spirit, the flesh is full of darkness. —Abraham Joshua Heschel in Moral Grandeur and Spiritual Audacity: Essays, 76
