Citáty Jicchok Lejb Perec

„It is a key to open a heaven after death and not a key with which to force open the portals of this life.“

— Isaac Leib Peretz
Context: They are all so-called Christian nations, but... this superimposed religion... does not penetrate into the core of their souls. It has no relation to their daily experience... It is a key to open a heaven after death and not a key with which to force open the portals of this life. Vegn vos Firn op fun Yidishkeit, 1911. S. Liptzin. Peretz. Yivo, 1947, p. 372.

„Genuine melody sings itself without a voice. It sings inside, within the heart, in man's very entrails!“

— Isaac Leib Peretz
Context: There are melodies that must have words... and melodies that sing themselves without words. The latter are of a higher grade. But these, too, depend on a voice and lips,... hence are not yet altogether pure, not yet genuine spirit. Genuine melody sings itself without a voice. It sings inside, within the heart, in man's very entrails! Mekubolim, 1906. Alle Verk, vi. 53.

„The Hebrew language... is the only glue which holds together our scattered bones.“

— Isaac Leib Peretz
Context: The Hebrew language... is the only glue which holds together our scattered bones. It also holds together the rings in the chain of time.... It binds us to those who built pyramids, to those who shed their blood on the ramparts of Jerusalem, and to those who, at the burning stakes, cried Shema Yisrael! Bildung, 1890. Alle Verk, xii. 14.

„As victors, you may become the bureaucracy: doling out to each his bit as in a poorhouse, assigning to each his task as in a prison.“

— Isaac Leib Peretz
Context: I fear you. As victors, you may become the bureaucracy: doling out to each his bit as in a poorhouse, assigning to each his task as in a prison. And you will exterminate the creator of new worlds,—the free human will, and stop up the purest well of human happiness—the power of the one to face thousands, to stand up to peoples and generations. Hofnung un Shrek, 1906. S. Liptzin. Peretz. Yivo, 1947, p. 279.

„There are melodies that must have words... and melodies that sing themselves without words.“

But these, too, depend on a voice and lips,... hence are not yet altogether pure, not yet genuine spirit. Genuine melody sings itself without a voice.

„Ghetto is impotence. Cultural cross-fertilization is the only possibility for human development.“

— Isaac Leib Peretz
Context: We should get out of the ghetto, but we should get out as Jews, with our own spiritual treasures. We should interchange, give and take, but not beg. Ghetto is impotence. Cultural cross-fertilization is the only possibility for human development. Vegn vos Firn op fun Yidishkeit, 1911. S. Liptzin. Peretz. Yivo, 1947, p. 378.

„This means, in popular imagination, that bread and clothes shall grow, ready-made, on trees. Do you have more winged ideals?“

— Isaac Leib Peretz
Context: A Jew waits for Messiah to come and redeem the world from fear and pain, from the cataclysmic conflicts between rich and poor. All shall enjoy the earth. This means, in popular imagination, that bread and clothes shall grow, ready-made, on trees. Do you have more winged ideals? Advice to the Estranged. S. Liptzin. Peretz. Yivo, 1947, p. 348.

„You are lighting a fire beneath the open sky, while your own family in your own house is freezing.“

— Isaac Leib Peretz
Context: [About loyalty to Judaism] Don't assume, Jewish intellectuals, that you are doing your duty by working... for so-called Humanity.... You are lighting a fire beneath the open sky, while your own family in your own house is freezing. Bildung, 1890. Alle Verk, xii. 20ff. S. Liptzin. Peretz. Yivo, 1947, pp. 334–8.

„Ugliness is the greatest of all sins.“

— Isaac Leib Peretz
Quoted by M. Samuel, Prince of the Ghetto, 146.
