„[T]he thought of creation itself dictates the presence of an excessive will to receive in the souls, to fit the immense pleasure that the Creator thought to bestow upon them. For the great delight and the great desire to receive must go hand in hand.“
— Yehuda Ashlag Orthodox Jewish Rabbi and Kabbalist 1886 - 1954
