One Of My Favorite Teachings

The Hebrew words yir'ah (fear), and ahavah (love) overlap, in that the last two letters of fear form the first two letters of love. Thus, they interlink, as seen in the picture.  This shows how closeness and distance must be balanced.  That balance is the key to every relationship (with G-d, others, and self).

I learned it in 6th grade from my teacher, Phil Chernofsky. I don't know where he got it from.
