The creative spirit draws its sustenance from the same wellsprings from which the nation’s heroic achievements emerge. Fortunate is the generation whose creative spirit and heroic achievements emerge at the same point in history, with great force, and in concert.”

 

– President Zalman Shazar on the occasion of  Haim Nahman Bialik’s fiftieth birthday

(quoted  from Yigal Alon’s speech in 1972 on “The Crisis of Israeli Culture”).
