Timshel

 “But the Hebrew word,
the word timshel – ‘Thou mayest” –
that gives a choice.
It might be the most important word in the world.
That says the way is open.
That throws it right back on a man.
For if thou mayest,
it is also true that thou mayest not
” 

 

East of Eden
-John Steinbeck, 1952
