On the cover:
"אם תרצו אין זו אגדה"
("Wenn ihr wollt, ist es kein Märchen")

"חלום ומעשה אינם שונים כל כך כפי שנוטים לחשוב, כי כל מעשי בני האדם בחלום יסודם וגם אחריתם - חלום היא ...
ואילו אם לא תרצו הרי כל אשר סיפרתי לכם אגדה הוא, ואגדה יוסיף להיות".

The tiles in Entin Square, which is located at the entrance to Tel Aviv University, include covertions and comments by scientists and other intellectuals.

In the current tile appears the famous covertion from the beginning of Herzl "The Old New Land"s book on the vision of the establishment of a Jewish state, and then appears a quote from the "afterword" of the book.

Translation of the text on the cover:
" If you will, it is no legend"
("Wenn ihr wollt, ist es kein Märchen")

"Dream and action are not as different as one tends to think, because all human actions in the dream are their foundation and their end - a dream is ...
If you do not want, then all I have told you is a legend, and a legend will continue to be. "


(Literally: Old-New Land, translated into Hebrew: "Tel Aviv")
(Benjamin Ze’ev Theodor Herzl, 1902)
