worlds, between you Gentiles
and us Jews there lies
an unbridgeable gulf…
Maurice Samuel, “You Gentiles”
Those who have pleasure at hand do not understand that this which appears greed to those who are displeasured may be merely their continual attempt to reassure gratification. Those to whom masturbation comes naturally have difficulty to comprehend the abstract cravings of those to whom it brings only incomplete satisfaction. He, whose belly is full, believes not him who is fasting.
Owners of foreskin do not understand the craving of the deprived to own. Owners of foreskin would rather assume that the foreskinless are greedy, unyielding and ill-intentioned.
