Rules of Life

"Whoever would make a name loses the name; he who increases not his knowledge decreases; whoever learns not is worthy of death; whoever makes use of the crown perishes" (Pirkei Avoth. 1:13).

"If I am not for myself, who will be for me? And when I am for myself, what am 'I'? And if not now, when?" (Pirkei Avoth. 1:14).

"Say not, 'When I have free time I shall study'; for you may perhaps never have any free time." (Pirkei Avoth. 2:4).
