Quote of the Day (Amos Oz, on a ‘Powerful Antidote to Fanaticism and Hatred’)

“Imagining the other is a powerful antidote to fanaticism and hatred. It is, in my view, also a major moral imperative.”—Israeli novelist, journalist, and peace advocate Amos Oz (1939-2018), speech upon accepting the 2005 Goethe Prize in recognition of his contribution to world literature, in The Amos Oz Reader, edited by Nitza Ben-Dov (2009)
