Maturity is the point where emotion merges with intellect.

on psychology
Spiritual animals?
By Dr. Abraham Twerski, M.D.

Some psychologists would have us believe that human behavior is on the same plane, and that man's freedom of will, is but an illusion. They argue that man has a number of drives, some of which are in conflict with others, and that human behavior is merely the result of the struggle among various drives for dominance. They claim that man's consciousness of what he is doing causes him to think that he is choosing, but that this is nothing more than an illusion. His choices are being made by his internal drives.

By Rabbi Berel Wein

This Sabbath is traditionally called the "Sabbath of Consolation." It invariably falls in the week after the Fast of the Ninth of Av and when the words of comfort of the prophet Isaiah are read as the maftir in the synagogue, and thus, in its simplest form the name "Sabbath of Consolation" derives. But there is a deeper look at the concept of consolation and that this Sabbath, in fact all Sabbaths, represents.
