R Yisrael Salanter said:
The Maharal of Prague zt’l created a golem. It is a great wonder, but it is far more wondrous to transmute the nature of the materiality of Man and to make out of it a man [mentsh].*
* As sited on page 210 of Israel Salanter: Text, Structure, Idea by Rabbi Hillel Goldberg
Only problem is the Maharal never created a Golem. See http://traditiononline.org/news/article.cfm?id=100805.
Thanks for the link and the reading material for my lunch break.
