Get To Know The Most Important Person In Your Life

"As human beings, our greatness lies not so much in being able to remake the world as in being able to remake ourselves."

Sweetest friends!!!

Some people spend large amounts of time reading newspapers in order to know what is happening in foreign countries when they don't even know what is happening in their own hearts. Shouldn't one get to know oneself first?

The FIRST rule of character development [known in the yeshivos as "mussar"]: KNOW THYSELF!!

Love and blessings!!

They say about the Hafez Haim that in the beginning of his life he wanted to change the world. Eventually he decided to focus on changing the residents of his town. By the time he was an old man he decided to focus on changing himself.

In our generation where man is estranged from himself the Rav makes an excellent point. Before we can even begin working on remaking ourselves we need to be introduced to ourselves!
