“I believe God loves those moments when we do without him.  He thinks, ‘At last, they’re going to stop walking around with their nose up in the air awaiting some supernatural magic; they’re going to watch the snow and the trees and start to think a bit.  They’re doing the job without me, inventing utopias that don’t have me as their essence; they are finding within themselves there reason for all things.  In fact, without realizing it, they are understanding my Law, for it is the Law of the world’.”

Joann Sfar, author of The Rabbi’s Cat,
in the afterword to Klezmer, Book One: Tales of the Wild West
