+ 378 The will of the nation, speaking with the voice of battle and through the amended Constitution, has fulfilled the great promise of 1776 by proclaiming 'liberty throughout the land to all the inhabitants thereof.' The elevation of the negro race from slavery to the full rights of citizenship is the most important political change we have known since the adoption of the Constitution of 1787. NO thoughtful man can fail to appreciate its beneficent effect upon our institutions and people. It has freed us from the perpetual danger of war and dissolution. It has added immensely to the moral and industrial forces of our people. It has liberated the master as well as the slave from a relation which wronged and enfeebled both. It has surrendered to their own guardianship the manhood of more than 5,000,000 people, and has opened to each one of them a career of freedom and usefulness. James A. Garfield

Agatha Christie, An Autobiography, 1977

+ 112 The Worth of Torah

The Torah is given to Israel as the brightest, broadest, holiest gateway of lightómore than the other gateways, which shine with a natural understanding and the spirit of humanityís natural morality. The gateway of Torah will be opened for us; and, through us, for the entire world.

If we close our ears to the wide-spread voice of God, which calls with vigor through all the natural gateways of light, which is the inheritance of all humanity, because we think that we will find the light of Torah only in a Torah that is torn from any light of the life that is dispersed in the world, in that lightís inner being and in the soul of man in its glory, we do not understand the worth of Torah.

In regard to this, the verse states, ďA nation that is foolish and not wise.Ē And Onkelos translates: ďA nation that received the Torah, yet did not grow wise.Ē

Orot Hatorah 12:5
