I just listened to this week's program during an early morning at the gym. The conversation has much memorable in it, and I'll listen to it several more times over the coming weeks. Near the end of the program, Eisen reads the following from Heschel's work: "'God, who is more than all there is, who speaks through the ineffable, whose question is more than our mind can answer, God, to whom our life can be the spelling of an answer.'" And at the end he says, "That's Heschel." I immediately thought, 'That's sort of like Emerson,' who writes in his introduction to Nature (1836), "Every man's condition is a solution in heiroglyphic to those inquiries he would put. He acts it as life, before he apprehends it as truth."
