    Rice is great if you’re really hungry and want to eat 2000 of something

    “I become very frustrated when people blame, or place responsibility on, the system. What’s the system? Is it the community’s selfless people who are already doing more than they’re able to do, with less funding than is needed to succeed? Or is it the people who are lamenting that the system isn’t doing enough?

    R’ Shmuel Gluck of Areivim”

    I will add another quote from the same person:

    “If you are going to feel guilty, get out of the business (of working with kids-at-risk)”

    (R’ Gluck to Lilmod, who fortunately is not really in the business, since she’s not good at not feeling guilty)



    “To put yourself up, do not put others down”

    The Rebbe Rashab, 5th Lubavither Rebbe



    “Junk is something you keep for years and need a week after throwing it away.”

    This thread also shows on the main page as only having 4 pages.
    I hope this isn’t going to be a forum-wide issue.


    Well, now it doesn’t.


    “If the procedure prescribed herein does not cover a specific
    operating requirement, initiative and common sense should suffice.”
    -Conclusion of the first paragraph of Radiotelephone Procedure,
    Training Aids Branch Center (TASO), Fort Knox, Kentucky (April 1974)


    The moment you press the button to start the microwave, you know it was a mistake. You hear a high pitched scream so deep that you could drown in it. The sound surrounds you, and so does the guilt. You are responsible for the destruction of millions of bacteria. Only then does it dawn on you that bacteria have neither lungs nor larynxes. The scream is your own.



    I would think it would benefit everyone who posted here to reread some of the posts that angered you so much and see, when removed, if it really said what you thought/accused it of saying. I believe there were more foaming mouths responding to things they assumed they read then what they actually read. And that prejudice we carry, I believe, is even sadder that the subject at hand. — Mod 29

    It’s amazing how much garbage – or rubbish – one can find by simply following one’s countrymen’s user profiles.


    “No one can hate war more than the people who must fight it.”
    -a video created by the 2nd Marine Forward Division (USA)
    (I think they were stationed in Afghanistan at the time)


    #1 – The ranking of “gratitude” in a study on emotions that help create a sense of well-being, followed by “love of learning,” “honesty,” and “hope.”

    Life is short. Eternity isn’t.

    In The River, the Kettle and The Bird, Rav Aharon Feldman
    quotes the Vilna Gaon as saying (commentary on Shir haShirim 5:2)
    that there are 4 basic causes of love – we love someone who 1) gives us
    physical pleasure, 2) assists us in accomplishing our goals, or 3) in whom
    we recognize noble qualities of character. 4) We may also love someone
    for no conscious reason other than that we sense that they love us.


    It is by no means sufficient that an officer should be capable. …
    He should be as well a gentleman of liberal education, refined manners,
    punctilious courtesy, and the nicest sense of personal honor. …
    No meritorious act of a subordinate should escape his attention,
    even if the reward be only one word of approval. Conversely,
    he should not be blind to a single fault in any subordinate.
    -John Paul Jones, September 14, 1775,
    from a letter to the naval committee of
    the North American insurrectionists

    Klei Yokor – בשמים ממעל ועל הארץ מתחת when it comes to heavenly, spiritual things, look at people above you, and earthly, material things look at people below you.



    Look both ways before crossing the street.



    When we get older our screws become loose. – My father



    “To put yourself up, do not put others down”, maybe it is implied in לא תעלה במעלות על מזבחי אשר לא תגלה ערותך עליו if you elevate yourself, don’t do it in a way that shows your shame. The Ohr Hachaim says on לא תשא את שם ה אלקיך לשוא, don’t use the name of Hashem to elevate yourself. Don’t make yourself more religious than you are to elevate yourself.



    The Binoh Leitim interprets the passage in Pirkei Avos – Wild animal comes to the “world” on false swearing. The man swearing falsely turns himself into a wild animal.
