Hebrew Quotations

In my office in Jerusalem, there's an ancient seal. It's a signet ring of a Jewish official from the time of the Bible. The seal was found right next to the Western Wall, and it dates back 2,700 years, to the time of King Hezekiah. Now, there's a name of the Jewish official inscribed on the ring in Hebrew. His name was Netanyahu.
Benjamin Netanyahu

I love a Hebrew National hot dog with an ice-cold Corona - no lime. If the phone rings, I won't answer until I'm done.
Maya Angelou

It is too late to be studying Hebrew; it is more important to understand even the slang of today.

I go into the Hebrew Scriptures frequently, looking for different ways in which minority voices have expressed the reality of God, and I find them. God is the wind in the Hebrew tradition, the life-giving, animating wind that gets identified with spirit. God is the rock upon which you stand, and you cannot fall when you're standing upon the rock.
John Shelby Spong
