„As victors, you may become the bureaucracy: doling out to each his bit as in a poorhouse, assigning to each his task as in a prison.“

— I. L. Peretz, Context: I fear you. As victors, you may become the bureaucracy: doling out to each his bit as in a poorhouse, assigning to each his task as in a prison. And you will exterminate the creator of new worlds,—the free human will, and stop up the purest well of human happiness—the power of the one to face thousands, to stand up to peoples and generations. Hofnung un Shrek, 1906. S. Liptzin. Peretz. Yivo, 1947, p. 279.

„To be great, be whole; don't exaggerate
Or leave out any part of you,
Be complete in each thing. Put all you are
Into the least of your acts.
So too in each lake, with its lofty life,
The whole moon shines.“
