"As the hand held before the eye conceals the greatest mountain, so the little earthly life hides from the glance the enormous lights and mysteries of which the earth is full, and he who can draw it away from before his eyes, as one draws away a hand, beholds the great shining of the inner worlds." Graffitum retranslates Rabbi Nachman of Breslov, Ukraine (1772-1810) as quoted by Erich Neumann in Art and the Creative Unconscious, citing Martin Buber's Die chassidischen Bücher.
