There's a Crack in Everything

Gurteen Knowledge Letter

In a recent conversation with Dominic Kelleher in Brussels we discovered a joint appreciation of the poems and songs of Leonard Cohen and Dominic told me of one of his favorite songs and a quote from it that I too particularly liked. This was the quote.

Ring the bells that still can ring
Forget your perfect offering
There is a crack, a crack in everything
That's how the light gets in.

From the the lyrics of the song Anthem by Leonard Cohen

But then in googling the song and the quote I found this fragment from an interview with Leonard Cohen that brought the words even more to live for me.
