Guilt is sharper than just a sense of obligation.
Guilt has tension, electricity, even pain.
When all else fails, guilt keeps me in the game.

David Suissa,
The Case for Jewish Guilt

From the Essays

Nations are like people: If you don't stand up for yourself, you have no spine; but if you don't stand up for others, you have no soul.

Natan Sharansky & Gil Troy,
The Right Way to Commemorate the Holocaust

The Jewish people so often neglect the importance
of beauty, not only in and of itself, but as a means to change the world.

Lizzy Savetsky, Thou Shalt Be Beautiful
