"Creating love out of the broken pieces" - Quote from Bruce Springsteen

"Now, I always thought that in our fall from Eden, besides the strains of physicality and the bearing of earthly burdens, our real earthly task was that an unbridgeable gap or a black hole was opened up in our ability to truly love one another. And so our job here on earth and the way we regain our divinity, our sacredness and our general good standing is by reconstructing love and creating love out of the broken pieces that we’ve been given. That’s all we have of human promise. That’s the way we prove ourselves in the eyes of God and facilitate our own redemption.”

Bruce Springsteen (Induction of Jackson Browne, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, 2004)
