No full post tonight, but a commonplace book note to myself:

“The most profound aspect of the Kotsker [sic] Rebbe’s path was a striving for spiritual freedom. Spiritual freedom means: flattering no one, neither oneself nor the world; not being subservient to anyone, neither to the self nor to society.” Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, quoted in Rabbi Michael Rosen, The Quest for Authenticity: The Thought of Reb Simhah Bunim p.166

I need to remember that more often.
