January 11

Perfection is impossible without humility. "Why should I strive for perfection, if I am already good enough?”


The higher the position you occupy among other people, the more humble you should be. Many people live in height and glory, but the mysteries of this world can be revealed only to those who are humble. Do not seek out complication. Treat your duty with respect. Do not study what you should not. More things have already been revealed to you than you can understand.

From Apocrypha


The Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

Matthew 20:28


Some of your friends praise you, and others blame
and criticize you; be closer to those who blame
you and further from those who praise you.

The Talmud


When an arrow does not hit its target, the marksman blames himself, not another person. A wise man behaves in the same way.



Remember all the bad things which you have done, and try to avoid doing bad things again. Remembering only your good deeds will interfere with your doing good in the future.
