The Sabbath (Abraham Joshua Heschel)

"What is the Sabbath? Spirit in the form of time. With our bodies we belong to space; our spirit, our souls, soar to eternity, aspire to the holy. The Sabbath is an ascent to the summit. It gives us the opportunity to sanctify time, to raise the good to the level of the holy, to behold the holy by abstaining from profanity." (Abraham Joshua Heschel, The Sabbath, p75)
