"That you need God more than anything, you know at all times in your heart.  But don't you know also that God needs you - in the fullness of his eternity, you?" 
      - Martin Buber

"I said to God
God, we were not made in your image
You were made in our image
If I did not tell you, you would never know who you are
We call you God
What do you call yourself?"
      - Stymean Karlen
