Puzzle Pieces for Growth

PUZZLE PIECES FOR GROWTH

Know this…No one has within themselves

all the pieces to their puzzle.

Everyone carries with them at least one and probably

many pieces to someone else’s puzzle.

Sometimes they know it.

Sometimes they don’t.

And when you present your piece,

which is worthless to you,

to another, whether you know it or not,

whether they know it or not,

you are a messenger from the Most High.

Abraham Joshua Heschel (1907-1972)

Found in Hanan Sills’ Yom Kippur machzor (prayer book), 1991
