Above all, I did not know where and when I would do it. Next year in Jerusalem! I told myself, in order to defer, perhaps indefinitely the fulfillment of this promise. Jacques Derrida, How not to talk, 1989


Yesterday I sat in a place where I said something that sounds incredible. I said that Jerusalem is as near to my soul as the place where I am now. In truth, that which is a thousand miles beyond Jerusalem is as near to my soul as my own body; I am as sure of this as of being a man. Meister Eckhart, 2nd sermon
