In asserting: God* exists, we merely bring down overpowering reality to the level of thought. Our belief is but an afterthought.
The transition from obliviousness to an awareness of God, is not a leap over a missing link in a syllogism but a retreat, giving up premises rather than adding one.
–Abraham Joshua Heschel
