He spoke the line, but the film was written

Knowledge is knowing a tomato is a fruit.
Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
Philosophy is wondering if that means ketchup is a smoothie.

Comlink-x – lol. Is Albert Camus Uncle Moishy’s real name? And aren’t you missing the second half of the last sentence?
Someone I know was always bothered by the fact that that song/poem was made Jewish. She felt it wasn’t Torah hashkafa since we do believe in having leaders and followers. I hear her point but I’m not sure I agree.
I don’t think the point of the poem is that there shouldn’t be leaders. One could “taaneh” either: a) it’s not referring to those that should be leading but rather to those who should be friends. or alternatively, b) sometimes leaders have to be careful about how they lead and walk “beside” their followers.November 25, 2016 7:39 pm at 7:39 pm #1220936

I have enough money to last me the rest of my life unless I decide to buy something.
My grandfather always said, Don?t watch your money, watch your health. So one day while I was watching my health, someone stole my money. It was my grandfather. I found out, that?s how he made a living.

golfer, I’m glad I made your day! For all you people who can access youtube I suggest you do a search on Matthew Jeffers! The guy is amazing! Here are some more quotes btw.
“I prefer using the word handicap over disability for what I have, being that the word handicap doesn’t have a dis in it”
And that being said “if people who have a handicap would take out the letters d-i-s from the word disability and just focus on the “ability” part, they would be able to accomplish things that they never thought possible”

“Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for others?'” -Martin Luther King, Jr.

“Not a statement we fully agree with as Torah Jews”
I’m not sure about that. One of my teachers always used to say that we should always be asking, “Is it good for the Jews or bad for the Jews?”.
That should be the question we always ask ourselves before every action.
I wonder why you think it’s not a statement we fully agree with as Torah Jews?January 17, 2017 1:13 am at 1:13 am #1220948
Maybe Randomex means that the question really is, “”Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, ‘What are you doing for Hashem?’January 17, 2017 1:15 am at 1:15 am #1220949
