+ 373 In 1840 I was called from my farm to undertake the administration of public affairs and I foresaw that I was called to a bed of thorns. I now leave that bed which has afforded me little rest, and eagerly seek repose in the quiet enjoyments of rural life. John Tyler


+ 324 I speak of the war as fruitless; for it is clear that, prosecuted upon the basis of the proclamations of September 22d and September 24th, 1862, prosecuted, as I must understand these proclamations, to say nothing of the kindred blood which has followed, upon the theory of emancipation, devastation, subjugation, it cannot fail to be fruitless in every thing except the harvest of woe which it is ripening for what was once the peerless republic. Franklin Pierce


+ 317 I met Woz when I was 13, at a friend's garage. He was about 18. He was, like, the first person I met who knew more electronics than I did at that point. We became good friends, because we shared an interest in computer and we had a sense of humor. We pulled all kinds of pranks together. Steve Jobs

+ 444 The hardest lesson you will ever learn will be to love yourself. But you can do it. There will always be days when you hate yourself, days when you wish you had never been born. But you are beautiful, and if Shakespeare had met you, you would’ve inspired his 18th sonnet, and if Monet had known you, he would’ve given up painting water lilies and chosen to paint you instead. I know it’s hard to love yourself, but sometimes it’s okay to be a little selfish with your love..Live for the life you always wanted but were too scared to pursue. Live for you. Live for every person who has ever loved you. Live for the fire that burns in your soul, that tells you: keep going, you’re almost there, just a little farther. M.K.


+ 403 Well-matured and well-disciplined talent is always sure of a market, provided it exerts itself; but it must not cower at home and expect to be sought for. There is a good deal of cant, too, in the whining about the success of forward and impudent men, while men of retiring worth are passed over with neglect. But it happens often that those forward men have that valuable quality of promptness and activity, without which worth is a mere inoperative property. A barking dog is often more useful than a sleeping lion. Endeavor to make your talents convertible to ready use, prompt for the occasion, and adapted to the ordinary purposes of life; cultivate strength rather than gracefulness; in our country it is the useful, not the ornamental, that is in demand. Washington Irving, letter to Pierre Paris Irving (nephew), 1824 December 7th


+ 293 I hated school. I don't trust anybody who looks back on the years from 14 to 18 with any enjoyment. If you liked being a teenager, there's something really wrong with you. Stephen King

+ 259 There is always more misery among the lower classes than there is humanity in the higher. Victor Hugo, 'Les Miserables,' 1862


+ 303 Life's greatest happiness is to be convinced we are loved. Victor Hugo, Les Miserables, 1862


+ 261 There is nothing like dream to create the future. Utopia to-day, flesh and blood tomorrow. Victor Hugo, Les Miserables, 1862


+ 331 The mashiach will bring about the political and spiritual redemption of the Jewish people by bringing us back to Israel and restoring Jerusalem (Isaiah 11:11-12; Jeremiah 23:8; 30:3; Hosea 3:4-5). He will establish a government in Israel that will be the center of all world government, both for Jews and gentiles (Isaiah 2:2-4; 11:10; 42:1). He will rebuild the Temple and re-establish its worship (Jeremiah 33:18). He will restore the religious court system of Israel and establish Jewish law as the law of the land (Jeremiah 33:15).

+ 289 Rabbi Shimon the son of Gamliel would say: By three things is the world sustained: law, truth and peace. Pirkei Avot 1:18


+ 396 Rabbi Shimon the son of Gamliel would say: By three things is the world sustained: law, truth and peace. As is stated (Zachariah 8:16), "Truth, and a judgement of peace, you should administer at your [city] gates.'' Pirkei Avot 1:18


+ 347 Rabbi Eliezer the son of Azariah would say: If there is no Torah, there is no common decency; if there is no common decency, there is no Torah. If there is no wisdom, there is no fear of God; if there is no fear of God, there is no wisdom. If there is no applied knowledge, there is no analytical knowledge; if there is no analytical knowledge, there is no applied knowledge. If there is no flour, there is no Torah; if there is no Torah, there is no flour. He would also say: One whose wisdom is greater than his deeds, what is he comparable to? To a tree with many branches and few roots; comes a storm and uproots it, and turns it on its face. As is stated, "He shall be as a lone tree in a wasteland, and shall not see when good comes; he shall dwell parched in the desert, a salt land, uninhabited" (Jeremiah 17:6). But one whose deeds are greater than his wisdom, to what is he compared? To a tree with many roots and few branches, whom all the storms in the world cannot budge from its place. As is stated: "He shall be as a tree planted upon water, who spreads his roots by the river; who fears not when comes heat, whose leaf is ever lush; who worries not in a year of drought, and ceases not to yield fruit" (ibid., v. 8). Pirkei Avot 3:18


+ 339 Rabbi Shimon the son of Elazar would say: Do not appease your friend at the height of his anger; do not comfort him while his dead still lies before him; do not ask him about his vow the moment he makes it; and do not endeavor to see him at the time of his degradation. Pirkei Avot 4:18


+ 309 Samuel the Small would say: "When your enemy falls, do not rejoice; when he stumbles, let your heart not be gladdened. Lest G-d see, and it will displeasing in His eyes, and He will turn His wrath from him [to you]" (Proverbs 24:17-18). Pirkei Avot 4:19


+ 329 One who causes the community to be meritorious, no sin will come by his hand. One who causes the community to sin, is not given the opportunity to repent. Moses was meritorious and caused the community to be meritorious, so the community's merit is attributed to him; as is stated, "He did God's righteousness, and His laws with Israel" (Deuteronomy 33:21). Jeroboam the son of Nebat sinned and caused the community to sin, so the community's sin is attributed to him; as is stated, "For the sins of Jeroboam, which he sinned and caused Israel to sin" (I Kings 15:30). Pirkei Avot 5:18


+ 309 Great is Torah, for it gives life to its observers in this world, and in the World To Come. As is stated (Proverbs 4:22): "For they are life to he who finds them, and a healing to all his flesh." And it says (ibid. 3:8): "It shall be health to your navel, and marrow to your bones." And it says (3:18): "She is a tree of life for those who hold fast to her, and happy are those who support her." And it says (1:9): "For they shall be a garland of grace for your head, and necklaces about your neck." And it says(4:9): "She shall give to your head a garland of grace, a crown of glory she shall grant you." And it says (9:11): "With me, your days shall be increased, and years of life shall be added to you." And it says (3:16): "Long days in her right hand; in her left, wealth and honor." And it says (3:2): "For long days, years of life and peace, they shall add to you." Pirkei Avot 6:7


+ 349 Said Rabbi Yossei the son of Kisma: Once, I was traveling and I encountered a man. He greeted me and I returned his greetings. Said he to me: "Rabbi, where are you from?" Said I to him: "From a great city of sages and scholars, am I." Said he to me: "Rabbi, would you like to dwell with us in our place? I will give you a million dinars of gold, precious stones and pearls." Said I to him: "If you were to give me all the silver, gold, precious stones and pearls in the world, I would not dwell anywhere but in a place of Torah. Indeed, so is written in the book of psalms by David the king of Israel: `I prefer the Torah of Your mouth over thousands in gold and silver' (Psalms 118:72). Furthermore, when a person passes from this world neither silver, nor gold, nor precious stones, nor pearls accompany him, only Torah and good deeds, as is stated (Proverbs 6:22): `When you go it will direct you, when you lie down it will watch over you, and when you awaken it shall be your speech.' `When you go it will direct you' - in this world; `when you lie down it will watch over you' - in the grave; `and when you awaken it shall be our speech' - in the World To Come. Also it says (Chaggai 2:8): `Mine is the silver and Mine is the gold, so says the L-rd of Hosts.' " Pirkei Avot 6:9


+ 312 I will insist the Hebrews have [contributed] more to civilize men than any other nation. If I was an atheist and believed in blind eternal fate, I should still believe that fate had ordained the Jews to be the most essential instrument for civilizing the nations ... They are the most glorious nation that ever inhabited this Earth. The Romans and their empire were but a bubble in comparison to the Jews. They have given religion to three-quarters of the globe and have influenced the affairs of mankind more and more happily than any other nation, ancient or modern. John Adams, Second President of the United States (From a letter to F. A. Van der Kemp [Feb. 16, 1808] Pennsylvania Historical Society)


+ 361 If statistics are right, the Jews constitute but one percent of the human race. It suggests a nebulous dim puff of stardust lost in the blaze of the Milky way. properly, the Jew ought hardly to be heard of, but he is heard of, has always been heard of. He is as prominent on the planet as any other people, and his commercial importance is extravagantly out of proportion to the smallness of his bulk. His contributions to the world’s list of great names in literature, science, art, music, finance, medicine, and abstruse learning are also away out of proportion to the weakness of his numbers. He has made a marvelous fight in this world, in all the ages; and had done it with his hands tied behind him. He could be vain of himself, and be excused for it. The Egyptian, the Babylonian, and the Persian rose, filled the planet with sound and splendor, then faded to dream-stuff and passed away; the Greek and the Roman followed; and made a vast noise, and they are gone; other people have sprung up and held their torch high for a time, but it burned out, and they sit in twilight now, or have vanished. The Jew saw them all, beat them all, and is now what he always was, exhibiting no decadence, no infirmities of age, no weakening of his parts, no slowing of his energies, no dulling of his alert and aggressive mind. All things are mortal but the Jew; all other forces pass, but he remains. What is the secret of his immortality? Mark Twain (“Concerning The Jews,” Harper’s Magazine, 1899 see The Complete Essays of Mark Twain, Doubleday [1963] pg. 249)

+ 271 Without Jerusalem, the land of Israel is as a body without a soul. Elhanan Leib Lewinsky; Hebrew writer & Zionist leader (1857-1910)


+ 325 Jerusalem (1804)

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green
And was the holy lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen

And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among those dark Satanic mills

Bring me my bow of burning gold
Bring me my arrows of desire
Bring me my spears o'clouds unfold
Bring me my chariot of fire

I will not cease from mental fight
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Til we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land
William Blake


+ 240 For in much wisdom is much vexation, and he who increases knowledge, increases pain. Kohelet 1:18


+ 274 And I hated all my toil that I toil under the sun, that I should leave it to the man who will be after me. Kohelet 2:18


+ 298 I said to myself, that this is because of the children of men, so that God should clarify for them, so that they may see that they are like beasts to themselves. Kohelet 3:18


+ 297 Also every man whom God has given riches and property and has given him power to eat thereof and to take his portion and to rejoice with his toil; that is a gift of God. Kohelet 5:18

+ 301 The evolution of electric power from the discovery of Faraday to the initial great installation of the Tesla polyphase system in 1896 is undoubtedly the most tremendous event in all engineering history. Charles F. Scott


+ 397 Tesla, with his almost preternatural insight into alternating current phenomenon that had enabled him some years before to revolutionize the art of electric power transmission through the invention of the rotary field motor, knew how to make resonance serve, not merely the role of a microscope to make visible the electric oscillations, as Hertz had done, but he made it serve the role of a stereopticon to render spectacular to large audiences the phenomena of electric oscillations and high frequency currents....He did more to excite interest and create an intelligent understanding of these phenomena in the years 1891–1893 than anyone else, and the more we learn about high frequency phenomena, resonance, and radiation today, the nearer we find ourselves approaching what we at one time were inclined, through a species of intellectual myopia, to regard as the fascinating but fantastical speculations of a man whom we are now compelled, in the light of modern experience and knowledge, to admit was a prophet. But Tesla was no mere lecturer and prophet. He saw to the fulfillment of his prophesies and it has been difficult to make any but unimportant improvements in the art of radio-telegraphy without traveling part of the way at least, along a trail blazed by this pioneer who, though eminently ingenious, practical, and successful in the apparatus he devised and constructed, was so far ahead of his time that the best of us then mistook him for a dreamer. I never came anywhere near having an appreciation of what Mr. Tesla had done in this art until a very late date... John Stone Stone


+ 339 It seems that I have always been ahead of my time. I had to wait nineteen years before Niagara was harnessed by my system, fifteen years before the basic inventions for wireless which I gave to the world in 1893 were applied universally. Nikola Tesla

+ 179 And Abram pitched his tents, and he came, and he dwelt in the plain of Mamre, which is in Hebron, and there he built an altar to the Lord. Bereshit 13:18


+ 194 And Malchizedek the king of Salem brought out bread and wine, and he was a priest to the Most High God. Bereshit 14:18


+ 193 On that day, the Lord formed a covenant with Abram, saying, To your seed I have given this land, from the river of Egypt until the great river, the Euphrates river. Bereshit 15:18


+ 177 And Abraham said to God, If only Ishmael will live before You! Bereshit 17:18


+ 192 Now the Lord appeared to him in the plains of Mamre, and he was sitting at the entrance of the tent when the day was hot. Bereshit 18:1


+ 200 And he lifted his eyes and saw, and behold, three men were standing beside him, and he saw and he ran toward them from the entrance of the tent, and he prostrated himself to the ground. Bereshit 18:2


+ 225 And he said, My lords, if only I have found favor in your eyes, please do not pass on from beside your servant. Bereshit 18:3


+ 181 Please let a little water be taken, and bathe your feet, and recline under the tree. Bereshit 18:4


+ 208 And I will take a morsel of bread, and sustain your hearts; after wards you shall pass on, because you have passed by your servant. And they said, So shall you do, as you have spoken. Bereshit 18:5


+ 212 And Abraham hastened to the tent to Sarah, and he said, Hasten three seah of meal and fine flour; knead and make cakes. Bereshit 18:6


+ 191 And to the cattle did Abraham run, and he took a calf, tender and good, and he gave it to the youth, and he hastened to prepare it. Bereshit 18:7


+ 166 And he took cream and milk and the calf that he had prepared, and he placed them before them, and he was standing over them under the tree, and they ate. Bereshit 18:8


+ 172 And they said to him, Where is Sarah your wife? And he said, Behold in the tent. Bereshit 18:9


+ 195 And he said, I will surely return to you at this time next year, and behold, your wife Sarah will have a son. And Sarah heard from the entrance of the tent, and it was behind him. Bereshit 18:10


+ 201 Now Abraham and Sarah were old, coming on in years; Sarah had ceased to have the way of the women. Bereshit 18:11


+ 184 And Sarah laughed within herself, saying, After I have become worn out, will I have smooth flesh? And also, my master is old. Bereshit 18:12


+ 191 And the Lord said to Abraham, Why did Sarah laugh, saying, Is it really true that I will give birth, although I am old? Bereshit 18:13


+ 197 Is anything hidden from the Lord? At the appointed time, I will return to you, at this time next year and Sarah will have a son. Bereshit 18:14


+ 179 And Sarah denied, saying, I did not laugh, because she was afraid. And He said, No, but you laughed. Bereshit 18:15


+ 173 And the men arose from there, and they looked upon Sodom, and Abraham went with them to escort them, Bereshit 18:16


+ 184 And the Lord said, Shall I conceal from Abraham what I am doing? Bereshit 18:17


+ 209 And Abraham will become a great and powerful nation, and all the nations of the world will be blessed in him. Bereshit 18:18


+ 229 For I have known him because he commands his sons and his household after him, that they should keep the way of the Lord to perform righteousness and justice, in order that the Lord bring upon Abraham that which He spoke concerning him. Bereshit 18:19


+ 189 And the Lord said, Since the cry of Sodom and Gomorrah has become great, and since their sin has become very grave, Bereshit 18:20


+ 190 I will descend now and see, whether according to her cry, which has come to Me, they have done; I will wreak destruction upon them; and if not, I will know. Bereshit 18:21


+ 175 And the men turned from there and went to Sodom, and Abraham was still standing before the Lord. Bereshit 18:22


+ 189 And Abraham approached and said, Will You even destroy the righteous with the wicked? Bereshit 18:23


+ 180 Perhaps there are fifty righteous men in the midst of the city; will You even destroy and not forgive the place for the sake of the fifty righteous men who are in its midst? Bereshit 18:24


+ 171 Far be it from You to do a thing such as this, to put to death the righteous with the wicked so that the righteous should be like the wicked. Far be it from You! Will the Judge of the entire earth not perform justice? Bereshit 18:25


+ 164 And the Lord said, If I find in Sodom fifty righteous men within the city, I will forgive the entire place for their sake. Bereshit 18:26


+ 190 And Abraham answered and said, Behold now I have commenced to speak to the Lord, although I am dust and ashes. Bereshit 18:27


+ 187 Perhaps the fifty righteous men will be missing five. Will You destroy the entire city because of five? And He said, I will not destroy if I find there forty-five. Bereshit 18:28


+ 175 And he continued further to speak to Him, and he said, Perhaps forty will be found there. And He said, I will not do it for the sake of the forty. Bereshit 18:29


+ 175 And he said, Please, let the Lord's wrath not be kindled, and I will speak. Perhaps thirty will be found there. And He said, I will not do it if I find thirty there. Bereshit 18:30


+ 172 And he said, Behold now I have desired to speak to the Lord, perhaps twenty will be found there. And He said, I will not destroy for the sake of the twenty. Bereshit 18:31


+ 185 And he said, Please, let the Lord's wrath not be kindled, and I will speak yet this time, perhaps ten will be found there. And He said, I will not destroy for the sake of the ten. Bereshit 18:32


+ 174 And the Lord departed when He finished speaking to Abraham, and Abraham returned to his place. Bereshit 18:33


+ 168 And Lot said to them, Please, do not, O Lord. Bereshit 19:18


+ 205 For the Lord had shut every womb of Abimelech's household, because of Sarah, Abraham's wife. Bereshit 20:18


+ 190 Rise, pick up the lad and grasp your hand upon him, for I shall make him into a great nation. Bereshit 21:18


+ 182 And through your children shall be blessed all the nations of the world, because you hearkened to My voice. Bereshit 22:18


+ 202 It was to Abraham as a possession before the eyes of the sons of Heth, in the presence of all who had come within the gate of his city. Bereshit 23:18


+ 188 And she said, Drink, my lord. And she hastened and lowered her pitcher to her hand, and she gave him to drink. Bereshit 24:18


+ 184 And they dwelt from Havilah to Shur, which borders on Egypt, going towards Asshur; before all his brothers he dwelt. Bereshit 25:18


+ 218 And Isaac again dug the wells of water which they had dug in the days of his father, Abraham, and the Philistines had stopped them up after Abraham's death; and he gave them names like the names that his father had given them. Bereshit 26:18


+ 164 And he came to his father and said, My father! And he said, Here I am. Who are you, my son? Bereshit 27:18


+ 211 And Jacob arose early in the morning, and he took the stone that he had placed at his head, and he set it up as a monument, and he poured oil on top of it. Bereshit 28:18


+ 178 And Leah said, God has given me my reward for I have given my maidservant to my husband; so she named him Issachar. Bereshit 30:18


+ 230 And he led all his livestock and all his possessions that he had acquired, the purchase of his acquisition, which he had acquired in Padan aram, to come to Isaac his father, to the land of Canaan. Bereshit 31:18


+ 175 And he commanded the first one, saying, When my brother Esau meets you, and asks you, saying, To whom do you belong, and where are you going, and for whom are these before you? Bereshit 32:18


+ 185 And Jacob came safely to the city of Shechem, which is in the land of Canaan, when he came from Padan aram, and he encamped before the city. Bereshit 33:18


+ 162 Their words pleased Hamor and Shechem, the son of Hamor. Bereshit 34:18


+ 159 And it came to pass, when her soul departed for she died that she named him Ben oni, but his father called him Benjamin. Bereshit 35:18


+ 150 And these are the sons of Oholibamah, the wife of Esau: Chief Jeush, Chief Jaalam, Chief Korah. These are the chieftains of Oholibamah, daughter of Anah, the wife of Esau. Bereshit 36:18


+ 176 And they saw him from afar, and when he had not yet drawn near to them, they plotted against him to put him to death. Bereshit 37:18


+ 175 So he said, What is the pledge that I should give you? And she said, Your signet, your cloak, and the staff that is in your hand. So he gave them to her, and he came to her, and she conceived his likeness. Bereshit 38:18


+ 150 And it happened when I raised my voice and called out, that he left his garment beside me and fled outside." Bereshit 39:18


+ 149 And Joseph replied and said, This is its meaning: the three baskets represent three days. Bereshit 40:18


+ 174 And behold, seven cows of robust flesh and handsome form were ascending from the Nile, and they pastured in the marshland. Bereshit 41:18


+ 144 On the third day, Joseph said to them: "Do this and live I fear God. Bereshit 42:18


+ 197 Now the men were frightened because they had been brought into Joseph's house, and they said, On account of the money that came back in our sacks at first, we are brought, to roll upon us and to fall upon us and to take us as slaves and our donkeys as well. Bereshit 43:18


+ 180 Then Judah approached him and said, Please, my lord, let now your servant speak something into my lord's ears, and let not your wrath be kindled against your servant, for you are like Pharaoh. Bereshit 44:18


+ 165 And take your father and your households and come to me, and I will give you the best of the land of Egypt, and you will eat the fat of the land. Bereshit 45:18


+ 216 These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to his daughter Leah, and she bore these to Jacob, sixteen souls. Bereshit 46:18


+ 200 That year ended, and they came to him in the second year, and they said to him, We will not hide from my lord, for insofar as the money and the property in animals have been forfeited to my lord, nothing remains before my lord, except our bodies and our farmland. Bereshit 47:18


+ 141 And Joseph said to his father, "Not so, Father, for this one is the firstborn; put your right hand on his head." Bereshit 48:18


+ 118 For Your salvation, I hope, O Lord! Bereshit 49:18


+ 148 His brothers also went and fell before him, and they said, Behold, we are your slaves. Bereshit 50:18


+ 183 So the king of Egypt summoned the midwives and said to them, Why have you done this thing, that you have enabled the boys to live? Shemot 1:18


+ 150 They came to their father Reuel, and he said, Why have you come so quickly today? Shemot 2:18


+ 164 And they will hearken to your voice, and you shall come, you and the elders of Israel, to the king of Egypt, and you shall say to him, The Lord God of the Hebrews has happened upon us, and now, let us go for a three days journey in the desert and offer up sacrifices to the Lord, our God. Shemot 3:18


+ 203 Moses went and returned to Jether, his father in law, and he said to him, Let me go now and return to my brothers who are in Egypt, and let me see whether they are still alive. So Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace. Shemot 4:18


+ 159 And now, go and work, but you will not be given stubble. Nevertheless, the same number of bricks you must give. Shemot 5:18


+ 163 And the sons of Kehath were Amram, Izhar, Hebron, and Uzziel, and the years of Kehath's life were one hundred thirty three years. Shemot 6:18


+ 153 And the fish that are in the Nile will die, and the Nile will become putrid, and the Egyptians will weary in their efforts to drink water from the Nile. Shemot 7:18


+ 191 And I will separate on that day the land of Goshen, upon which My people stand, that there will be no mixture of noxious creatures there, in order that you know that I am the Lord in the midst of the earth. Shemot 8:18


+ 158 Behold, I am going to rain down at this time tomorrow a very heavy hail, the likes of which has never been in Egypt from the day of its being founded until now. Shemot 9:18


+ 131 So he left Pharaoh and entreated the Lord, Shemot 10:18


+ 138 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month in the evening, you shall eat unleavened cakes, until the twenty first day of the month in the evening. Shemot 12:18


+ 162 So God led the people around by way of the desert to the Red Sea, and the children of Israel were armed when they went up out of Egypt. Shemot 13:18


+ 140 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I will be glorified through Pharaoh, through his chariots, and through his horsemen. Shemot 14:18


+ 118 The Lord will reign to all eternity. Shemot 15:18


+ 137 And they measured it with an omer, and whoever gathered much did not have more, and whoever gathered little did not have less; each one according to his eating capacity, they gathered. Shemot 16:18


+ 170 Now Moses' father in law, Jethro, the chieftain of Midian, heard all that God had done for Moses and for Israel, His people that the Lord had taken Israel out of Egypt. Shemot 18:1


+ 151 So Moses' father in law, Jethro, took Zipporah, Moses' wife, after she had been sent away, Shemot 18:2


+ 142 And her two sons, one of whom was named Gershom, because he said, "I was a stranger in a foreign land," Shemot 18:3


+ 175 And one who was named Eliezer, because Moses said, "The God of my father came to my aid and rescued me from Pharaoh's sword." Shemot 18:4


+ 169 Now Moses father in law, Jethro, and his Moses sons and his wife came to Moses, to the desert where he was encamped, to the mountain of God. Shemot 18:5


+ 148 And he said to Moses, I, Jethro, your father in law, am coming to you, and so is your wife and her two sons with her. Shemot 18:6


+ 165 So Moses went out toward Jethro, prostrated himself and kissed him, and they greeted one another, and they entered the tent. Shemot 18:7


+ 156 Moses told his father in law about all that the Lord had done to Pharaoh and to the Egyptians on account of Israel, and about all the hardships that had befallen them on the way, and that the Lord had saved them. Shemot 18:8


+ 145 Jethro was happy about all the good that the Lord had done for Israel, that He had rescued them from the hands of the Egyptians. Shemot 18:9


+ 166 Thereupon, Jethro said, Blessed is the Lord, Who has rescued you from the hands of the Egyptians and from the hand of Pharaoh, Who has rescued the people from beneath the hand of the Egyptians. Shemot 18:10


+ 149 Now I know that the Lord is greater than all the deities, for with the thing that they plotted, He came upon them. Shemot 18:11


+ 180 Then Moses father in law, Jethro, sacrificed burnt offerings and peace offerings to God, and Aaron and all the elders of Israel came to dine with Moses father in law before God. Shemot 18:12


+ 148 It came about on the next day that Moses sat down to judge the people, and the people stood before Moses from the morning until the evening. Shemot 18:13


+ 154 When Moses father in law saw what he was doing to the people, he said, What is this thing that you are doing to the people? Why do you sit by yourself, while all the people stand before you from morning till evening? Shemot 18:14


+ 144 Moses said to his father in law, For the people come to me to seek God. Shemot 18:15


+ 117 If any of them has a case, he comes to me, and I judge between a man and his neighbor, and I make known the statutes of God and His teachings. Shemot 18:16


+ 145 Moses father in law said to him, The thing you are doing is not good. Shemot 18:17


+ 142 You will surely wear yourself out both you and these people who are with you for the matter is too heavy for you; you cannot do it alone. Shemot 18:18


+ 135 Now listen to me. I will advise you, and may the Lord be with you. You represent the people before God, and you shall bring the matters to God. Shemot 18:19


+ 154 And you shall admonish them concerning the statutes and the teachings, and you shall make known to them the way they shall go and the deeds they shall do. Shemot 18:20


+ 177 But you shall choose out of the entire nation men of substance, God fearers, men of truth, who hate monetary gain, and you shall appoint over them Israel leaders over thousands, leaders over hundreds, leaders over fifties, and leaders over tens. Shemot 18:21


+ 163 And they shall judge the people at all times, and it shall be that any major matter they shall bring to you, and they themselves shall judge every minor matter, thereby making it easier for you, and they shall bear the burden with you. Shemot 18:22


+ 149 If you do this thing, and the Lord commands you, you will be able to survive, and also, all this people will come upon their place in peace. Shemot 18:23


+ 129 Moses obeyed his father in law, and he did all that he said. Shemot 18:24


+ 154 Moses chose men of substance out of all Israel and appointed them as heads of the people, leaders of thousands, leaders of hundreds, leaders of fifties, and leaders of tens. Shemot 18:25


+ 145 And they would judge the people at all times; the difficult case they would bring to Moses, but any minor case they themselves would judge. Shemot 18:26


+ 138 Moses saw his father in law off, and he went away to his land. Shemot 18:27


+ 146 And the entire Mount Sinai smoked because the Lord had descended upon it in fire, and its smoke ascended like the smoke of the kiln, and the entire mountain quaked violently. Shemot 19:18


+ 155 The people remained far off, but Moses drew near to the opaque darkness, where God was. Shemot 20:18


+ 122 And if men quarrel, and one strikes the other with a stone or with a fist, and he does not die but is confined to his bed, Shemot 21:18


+ 129 Whoever lies carnally with an animal shall surely be put to death. Shemot 22:18


+ 143 You shall not sacrifice the blood of My sacrifice with leaven, and the fat of My festive sacrifice shall not stay overnight until morning. Shemot 23:18


+ 128 And Moses came within the cloud, and he went up to the mountain, and Moses was upon the mountain forty days and forty nights. Shemot 24:18


+ 138 And you shall make two golden cherubim; you shall make them of hammered work, from the two ends of the ark cover. Shemot 25:18


+ 130 And you shall make the planks for the Mishkan, twenty planks for the southern side. Shemot 26:18


+ 165 The length of the courtyard shall be one hundred cubits and the width fifty by fifty cubits. The height of the hangings shall be five cubits of twisted fine linen, and their sockets shall be of copper. Shemot 27:18


+ 123 The second row: nofech, sappir, and yahalom. Shemot 28:18


+ 154 And you shall make the entire ram go up in smoke upon the altar; it is a burnt offering made to the Lord; it is a spirit of satisfaction, a fire offering for the Lord. Shemot 29:18


+ 139 You shall make a washstand of copper and its base of copper for washing, and you shall place it between the Tent of Meeting and the altar, and you shall put water therein. Shemot 30:18


+ 136 When He had finished speaking with him on Mount Sinai, He gave Moses the two tablets of the testimony, stone tablets, written with the finger of God. Shemot 31:18


+ 140 But Moses said: It is neither a voice shouting victory, nor a voice shouting defeat; a voice of blasphemy I hear. Shemot 32:18


+ 89 And he said: Show me, now, Your glory! Shemot 33:18


+ 163 The Festival of Unleavened Cakes you shall keep; seven days you shall eat unleavened cakes which I have commanded you, at the appointed meeting time of the month of spring, for in the month of spring you went out of Egypt. Shemot 34:18


+ 93 The pegs of the Mishkan and the pegs of the courtyard, and their ropes; Shemot 35:18


+ 103 And he made fifty copper clasps to fasten the tent together so that it became one. Shemot 36:18


+ 102 And six branches coming out of its sides: three menorah branches from its one side and three menorah branches from its second side. Shemot 37:18


+ 123 And the screen of the gate of the courtyard was the work of an embroiderer, made of blue, purple, and crimson wool, and twisted fine linen, twenty cubits long, and its height in the width was five cubits, corresponding to the hangings of the courtyard. Shemot 38:18


+ 118 And the two ends of the two cables they placed upon the two settings, and they placed them upon the shoulder straps of the ephod, on its front part. Shemot 39:18


+ 122 Moses set up the Mishkan, placed its sockets, put up its planks, put in its bars, and set up its pillars. Shemot 40:18


+ 126 And he shall then place some of the blood on the horns of the altar that is before the Lord in the Tent of Meeting. And then he shall pour all the blood onto the base of the altar used for burnt offerings, which is at the entrance to the Tent of Meeting. Vayikra 4:18


+ 144 He shall bring an unblemished ram from the flock, with the value for a guilt offering, to the kohen. The kohen shall then make atonement for his unintentional sin which he committed and did not know, and he shall be forgiven. Vayikra 5:18


+ 140 Speak to Aaron and to his sons, saying, This is the law of the sin offering: The sin offering shall be slaughtered before the Lord in the place where the burnt offering is slaughtered. It is a holy of holies. Vayikra 6:18


+ 135 And if any of the flesh of his peace offering is to be eaten on the third day, it shall not be accepted; it shall not count for the one who offers it; rather, it shall be rejected, and the person who eats of it shall bear his sin. Vayikra 7:18


+ 119 And he brought near the burnt offering ram, and Aaron and his sons leaned their hands forcefully upon the head of the ram. Vayikra 8:18


+ 122 And he slaughtered the ox and the ram, the people's peace offering, and Aaron's sons presented the blood to him, and he dashed it on the altar, around, Vayikra 9:18


+ 125 Behold, its blood was not brought into the Sanctuary within, so you should have surely eaten it within holy precincts, as I commanded! vayikra 10:18


+ 82 The bat, the starling, the magpie; Vayikra 11:18


+ 112 If a person's flesh has an inflammation on its skin, and it heals, Vayikra 13:18


+ 104 And what is left over from the oil that is in the kohen's palm, he shall place upon the head of the person being cleansed, and the kohen shall effect atonement for him before the Lord. Vayikra 14:18


+ 119 A woman with whom a man cohabits, whereby there was a discharge of semen, they shall immerse in water, and they shall remain unclean until evening. Vayikra 15:18


+ 101 And he shall then go out to the altar that is before the Lord and effect atonement upon it: He shall take some of the bull's blood and some of the he goat's blood, and place it on the horns of the altar, around. Vayikra 16:18


+ 107 And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Vayikra 18:1


+ 122 Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them: I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 18:2


+ 145 Like the practice of the land of Egypt, in which you dwelled, you shall not do, and like the practice of the land of Canaan, to which I am bringing you, you shall not do, and you shall not follow their statutes. Vayikra 18:3


+ 123 You shall fulfill My ordinances and observe My statutes, to follow them. I am the Lord, your God. Vayikra 18:4


+ 117 You shall observe My statutes and My ordinances, which a man shall do and live by them. I am the Lord. Vayikra 18:5


+ 111 No man shall come near to any of his close relatives, to uncover their nakedness. I am the Lord. Vayikra 18:6


+ 111 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father or the nakedness of your mother; she is your mother; you shall not uncover her nakedness. Vayikra 18:7


+ 120 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's wife; it is your father's nakedness. Vayikra 18:8


+ 129 The nakedness of your sister, whether your father's daughter or your mother's daughter, whether born to one who may remain in the home or born to one who must be sent outside you shall not uncover their nakedness. Vayikra 18:9


+ 130 The nakedness of your son's daughter or your daughter's daughter you shall not uncover their nakedness, for they are your own nakedness. Vayikra 18:10


+ 124 The nakedness of the daughter of your father's wife, born to your father she is your sister: you shall not uncover her nakedness. Vayikra 18:11


+ 115 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's sister; she is the close relative of your father. Vayikra 18:12


+ 120 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your mother's sister, for she is the close relative of your mother. Vayikra 18:13


+ 106 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your father's brother you shall not come near his wife; she is your aunt. Vayikra 18:14


+ 129 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your daughter in law; she is your son's wife you shall not uncover her nakedness. Vayikra 18:15


+ 126 You shall not uncover the nakedness of your brother's wife: it is your brother's nakedness. Vayikra 18:16


+ 117 You shall not uncover the nakedness of a woman and her daughter; you shall not take in marriage her son's daughter or her daughter's daughter, to uncover her nakedness they are close relatives, it is evil counsel. Vayikra 18:17


+ 138 And you shall not take a woman with her sister in marriage as rivals, to uncover the nakedness of one upon the other, in her lifetime. Vayikra 18:18


+ 127 And to a woman during the uncleanness of her separation, you shall not come near to uncover her nakedness. Vayikra 18:19


+ 118 You shall not lie carnally with your neighbor's wife, to become defiled by her. Vayikra 18:20


+ 124 And you shall not give any of your offspring to pass through for Molech. And you shall not profane the Name of your God. I am the Lord. Vayikra 18:21


+ 113 You shall not lie down with a male, as with a woman: this is an abomination. Vayikra 18:22


+ 125 And with no animal shall you cohabit, to become defiled by it. And a woman shall not stand in front of an animal to cohabit with it; this is depravity. Vayikra 18:23


+ 142 You shall not defile yourselves by any of these things, for the nations, whom I am sending away from before you, have defiled themselves with all these things. Vayikra 18:24


+ 131 And the land became defiled, and I visited its sin upon it, and the land vomited out its inhabitants. Vayikra 18:25


+ 158 But as for you, you shall observe My statutes and My ordinances, and you shall not do like any of these abominations neither the native, nor the stranger who sojourns among you. Vayikra 18:26


+ 111 For the people of the land who preceded you, did all of these abominations, and the land became defiled. Vayikra 18:27


+ 111 And let the land not vomit you out for having defiled it, as it vomited out the nation that preceded you. Vayikra 18:28

+ 98 Halachah and Aggadah

by Haim Lifshitz

Once, a man close to Rav Kook confided in him, “My son does not have a great desire to learn Torah.”

Rav Kook replied, “When I was young, I also did not have a great desire to learn the halachah. My heart was drawn after aggadah. And by learning aggadah, I came to learn halachah. I advise you to teach your son aggadah. As a result, he will also come to learn halachah.”

And so it was.

+ 116 To Expel Coarseness

It is an established principle that if you see that your success lies in the Torah’s spirituality and mystical teachings, and if you find learning halachah in depth difficult, your inner obligation is to set aside the majority of your time to that study that fits your spirit.

Similarly, if you see that learning the secrets of the Torah is sanctifying you, is raising your spirit and bringing you close to holiness with a feeling in your heart and inner mind, and you do not see this desirable fruit from your exoteric studies—and, more than that, they do not suffice to expel from you the coarseness of your proclivities that you sense in your spirit—this is a definite sign that your rectification lies in learning your portion of the inner light of the Torah’s mysticism.

When you feel within yourself such a clarity and purity that the exoteric learning will also support you in [rising in] holiness, you will be able to expand your boundary until you will fulfill your purpose well and come back to gain more pleasure in the teachings of the supernal secrets “for sustenance, for satiety and for fine garments” (Isaiah 23:18). When everything is for the sake of heaven, with pure intent, “He does not despise the suffering of the impoverished” (Psalms 22:25).
