A Gift Of Wisdom

I love the Internet Sacred Texts database. It has a nice translation of Pirkei Avot, the Sayings of the Jewish Fathers, that you can just scroll right through. I present to you a nice juicy quote, full of wisdom and goodness:

"Shema'iah said, Love work; and hate lordship; and make not thyself known to the government."

Words to live by, every one.
