And all your reading and studying and memorizing is to no purpose; you either know your answers when the time comes and they ask you or you don’t know them, and your best bet is just to say something and keep on talking, your whole theology is but a lot of words, and any good quote from any authority will fill the bill.
Stefan Heym, The Wandering Jew
"It’s all that reading you do. It puts these strange thoughts in your head. When was the last time you were at synagogue?"
Allan Levine, The Blood Libel
Dudley Reed, London Library
