[Commonplace books: Thomas Farnaby, 17th-century]
Every soul, big or small, the moment it passed the process of being cleansed in the fires of hell, found a place in Paradise-- each according to its origin and its deeds. All the heavens, all the upper worlds, all the spheres, all the angels and souls, were concerned with one thing-- to learn the secrets of the Torah, since God and the Torah and those who believed in the Torah, the Jews, were one and the same.... God Himself studied the Torah; that is to say, He studied His own depths. All the heavens, the entire entirety, were one great yeshivah.
