Quote of the Day

“Anyone who sees himself as a messiah, a superhuman entity, is either a psychopath or a crook. If he honestly believes that he is the messiah, he is a psychopath. If he recognizes the reality and yet uses messianism to control his followers he is a crook…This reality of psychopaths and crooks amongst the mystics is known in rabbinic literature.”–Yeshayahu Leibowitz
