( Heschel - Between God & Man )
Ultimate meaning and ultimate wisdom are not found within the world but in God & the only way to wisdom is through our relationship to God. This relationship is awe. Awe in this sense is more than an emotion; it is away of understanding. Knowledge is fostered by curiosity, wisdom p 52 is fostered by awe.
A. Heschel
The secret of every being is the divine care & concern that are invested in it.
We must be guided by awe to be worthy of faith.
id. 53.
