Jewish Power vs. Jewish Greatness

If I were to do nothing but stay in bed and eat bon bons all day long; I could rest assured that 2 billion anti-Semites would obsess about me and be sick with jealousy just because I'm a Jew. That's POWER. Even the Pope and monarchs have to work for their influence - and work hard for it.

But that's not GREATNESS. What makes the Jews GREAT is the fact that we wish it were not so. We would prefer that those shadows of existence would really begin to live independently of us.
