Isaac Bashevis Singer: “it is a battle which lasts from the cradle to the grave”

5 November 2015

Isaac Bashevis Singer

“The powers that assail us are often cleverer than every one of our possible defenses; it is a battle which lasts from the cradle to the grave. All our devices are temporary, and valid only for one specific attack, not for the entire moral war. In this sense I feel that resistance and humility, faith and doubt, despair and hope can dwell in our spirit simultaneously. Actually, a total solution would void the greatest gift that God has bestowed upon mankind – free choice.”

– Isaac Bashevis Singer
