Abraham Isaac Kook
The delight of the Torah is ignited by an inner awareness. A man begins to sense the great tapestry of each letter and point. Every concept and content, every notion and idea, of every spiritual movement, of every vibration, intellectual and emotional, from the immediate and general to the distant and detailed, from matters lofty, spiritual, and ethical according to their outward profile, to matters practical, obligatory, seemingly frightening, and forceful, and at the same time complex and full of content and great mental exertion all together become known by a supernal holy awareness.
Kook quotes
The redemption continues. The redemption from Egypt and the complete redemption of the future are one unending action: the action of the strong hand and outstretched arm, which began in Egypt and works though all eventualities. Moses and Elijah are redeemers in a single redemption; the beginner and the ender, the opener and closer together fill the unit. The spirit of Israel hears the sound of the movements, the redemptive actions, brought about through all eventualities until the sprouting of redemption will be complete, in all its plentitude and goodness.?
Kook
Our generation is wonderful generation, full of wonder. It's very hard to find an example of it in all our history. Composed of contradictions light and darkness mixed.




Kook Abraham Isaac quotes
The pure righteous do not complain of the dark, but increase the light; they do not complain of evil, but increase justice; they do not complain of heresy, but increase faith; they do not complain of ignorance, but increase wisdom.
Kook Abraham Isaac
We forgot we have Holy Body not less than our Holy Spirit.
Abraham Isaac Kook quotes
When the spirit shines, even foggy skies make pleasant light.
Abraham Isaac Kook
We are great and our faults are great and therefore our problems great and great are our consolations.
Kook Abraham Isaac quotes
A tiny remnant of a big thing is better than a whole little thing.
Kook
The good will is all and all the talents are ways to fulfill it.
