“I remember bursting into tears one evening because a passage of Bible commentary had proved too difficult for me to understand. I was about nine years old at that time.
-You want to understand everything immediately?- my father said. -Just like that? You only began to study this commentary last week. All beginnings are hard. You have to work at the job of studying. Go over it again and again-.”
(In The Beginnings – Chaim Potok)

“The Austrian school teaches us that between macroeconomic aggregates you cannot apply universal law”.
(Austrian school- Von Mises, Von Hayek)
