Martin Buber (1878-1965) was a Viennese philosopher and religious leader who translated the Old Testament into German. He sought understanding between Jews and Arabs.

Today I learned a bit about his philosophies - (after a baby blessing I attended). Having read this I couldn't help feeling inspired. I mean - don't think about it too hard...you know - so hard that your world collapses into chaos around you as you sob into your meaningless daily cornflakes, questioning everything Why? Why? Why? I mean, think about it enough to make you think - Yeah! Hello World! I'm Here! and I'm -a-do-my-thang! I'm here to fulfil my particularity in the world!

So this Buber Dude said:

“Every person born into this world represents something new, something that never existed before, something original and unique. It is the duty of every person to know and consider that he is unique in his particular character and that there has never been anyone like him before. For if there had been something like him before, there would be no need for him to be in the world. Every single person is a new thing and is called upon to fulfill his particularity in the world.”
