From For the Relief of Unbearable Urges, by Nathan Englander
"'You have an epiphany and want everyone else to have the same one. Well, if we did, even if it was the best, greatest, holiest thing in the world. If every person had the same one, the most you'd be left with is a bright idea.'
'I don't know if that's theologically sound,' Zalman said, twisting the pointed ends of his beard."
