In the scriptures we read: "I stood between the Lord and you." The "I" stands between God and us. When a man says "I" and presumes to use his Maker's word, he is shutting himself off from him. But there is no dividing wall before him who sacrifices his "I." For of him it is written: "I am  my beloved's, and his desire is toward me." When my "I" comes to belong to my beloved, then his desire is toward me. ‚óŹ Ten Rungs: Hasidic Sayings ed. Martin Buber trans. Olga Marx
