Abraham Geiger

German Jewish Theologian

"Longing after the Highest and Noblest, attachment to the Whole, soaring up to the Infinite, despite our finiteness and limitedness - this is religion."

"When we change the form, we snap the bond of continuity and the celebration is no more the loved one of old, but something new and cold and contains the glow which warms the soul."
