The desire to be on sure ground is the relic of an authoritarian frame of mind. It's a relic of those times when people believed they would receive all that is essential through revelation from the Gods.
Ernst Tugendhat, in Die Tageszeitung
That which is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor.
That is the whole of Torah; the rest is commentary. —Hillel
