והאמר מר: יושב הקדוש ברוך הוא וזן מקרני ראמים ועד ביצי כינים
“The Holy One Blessed Be God sits and sustains all creatures, from the horns of the wild ox to the eggs of lice.” [translation from Encyclopedia Judaica. Keter Publishing House Ltd. Jerusalem, 1971.]

Suggested Discussion Questions:

What does it mean for God to sit and sustain all creatures?

How can we show appreciation for all of G-d's creations when they can be so different as wild ox horns to lice eggs? How can we work to sustain them all?
