Passing Through

We live on a higher level. We look to another world. We dream of a better day. Some years ago, an American tourist visited a very famous Polish rabbi, and as he looked around the apartment of this rabbi, he was astonished at the plainness and simplicity of it. There were just some bookcases full of books over here, a table over there, and a bench in the room. The astonished American said to the rabbi, “Rabbi, where is your furniture?” The rabbi said to him, “Well, where is your furniture?” He said, “What do you mean, where is my furniture? I’m just a visitor in this country. I’m just passing through.” And the rabbi looked at him and smiled and said, “So am I.”
